SJSU Engineering Equivalencies

The following substitutions for the BSCS are only permitted for CS majors who took the courses as Computer Engineering majors.  These substitutions may be allowed for students transferring from other engineering majors; please consult the Computer Science Undergraduate Coordinator.

These permitted substitutions may change from semester to semester. Students may not count both a CS course and an equivalent course from another department toward the BS in CS.

No more than 6 units of CE 124, CE 125, CE 143, CE 146, and CE 155 may count toward the BSCS, and no more than 12 units of CMPE courses may count as electives. Note that there is a constraint on electives that may count toward the BSCS degree (to see the constraint for a particular academic year, find the BSCS requirements for that year and check Note 9.

* Students who complete CS 46A and CS 46B may use CMPE 46 in place of CS 49C for the BSCS.

** This substitution is permitted for all students, not just those in certain majors.
