Engineering Undeclared + Business*

Available to freshman applicants beginning Fall 2020.
Interested in business and engineering but unsure of what engineering track is right for you? Select M.E.T. Engineering Undeclared + Business to explore and declare one of the six M.E.T. engineering options your first year.  A sample first year curriculum plan for the Engineering Undeclared + Business program can be found here. Your own course of study will depend on your pre-college preparation, including AP course credits and other individual circumstances.

*If you have been admitted to the Engineering Undeclared program, you should be aware of the following policies and procedures:

  • You must complete one semester at UC Berkeley before you can officially declare a major.
  • You must declare a major by the end of your second semester, and if you are in good academic standing you may choose from any of the M.E.T. College of Engineering majors. Good academic standing is defined as having an overall and technical GPA of 2.0 or higher and not being on academic probation or subject to dismissal.
  • You should work closely with Dawn Kramer and your ESS Adviser to explore major options.
