1Or MATH.1280 Calculus 1A and MATH.1290 Calculus 1B, followed by MATH.1320 Calculus II.
2A grade of C or better in Calculus II is required.
3PHYS.3380 Optics and Waves satisfies the prerequisite for PHYS.5390 Electro-Optics, a core course in the Optical Sciences option for the M.S. in Physics.
4EECE.5680 Electro-Optic Systems, also offered as EECE.4680, satisfies an elective course in the Optical Sciences option for the M.S. in Physics.
5Electrical Engineering & Physics students meet the Core Curriculum Essential Learning Outcome of Diversity and Cultural Awareness (DCA) outside of the major. See the DCA course listing for a complete list of options.

No more than two Breadth of Knowledge courses can be taken with the same prefix. The Core Curriculum courses may be taken in any sequence. Refer to the Core Curriculum policy for further details. You should meet with your faculty advisor to determine how you will meet the Core Curriculum requirements.

Current UMass Lowell students should use their Advisement Report in SIS. If you need assistance, please contact your advisor.

Restriction on off-campus study:

Be advised that any course taken at another institution must be formally approved prior to enrollment. See the catalog policy for details.
