Pre-Engineering Courses + Sample Course Plans

Red bolded pre-engineering courses are required to be reviewed for admission into Viterbi. Each Viterbi major differs in their required in-residency pre-engineering courses for review. 

Although some pre-engineering courses might not be necessary to be reviewed, they might still be recommended to stay on track for graduation. 


Note that some courses have prerequisites, so you should still plan to take them in order to continue with the sequence.

  • MATH 125 is a prerequisite to MATH 126, PHYS 151, BME 101, CHE 120, and ECON 351.
  • CHEM 105 aL is a prerequisite to CHEM 105 bL and CHE 120.

To get an overview of the different Viterbi majors and sample 4-year course plans, please take a look at the Viterbi Undergraduate Handbook.
