Robotics Minor

Robotics Minor for Computer Science Majors

The CS curriculum has three free and two technical electives. Students may use these electives to incorporate the courses. Thus, no course overload is required.

arrow_optComputer Science (CS) majors are required to take Physics I + Lab to satisfy four of their twelve Natural Science Elective units. We also urge CS majors to take Physics II + Lab for another four Natural Science units. CS majors take two courses in Mechanical Engineering, and three in Electrical Engineering.
