Minor in Global Sustainability The interdisciplinary minor in Global Sustainability trains students to understand the changes that need to be made in order for the human population to live in a sustainable relationship with the resources available on this planet.
See the Interdisciplinary Studies section of this Catalogue for more information. Engineering and Computer Science in the Global Context The globalization of the marketplace for information technology services and products makes it likely that The Henry Samueli School of Engineering graduates will work in multicultural settings or be employed by companies with extensive international operations, or customer bases.
The goal of the concentration is to help students develop and integrate knowledge of the history, language, and culture of a country or geographic region outside the United States, through course work both at UCI and an international host campus, followed by a technology-related internship in the host country.
All of The Henry Samueli School of Engineering majors in good standing may propose an academic plan that demonstrates the ability to complete the concentration a minimum of eight courses and other requirements for graduation in a reasonable time frame.
The Associate Dean will be available to assist qualified students with the development of a satisfactory academic plan, as needed. The concentration consists of the following components: A minimum of eight courses at UCI or at the international campus with an emphasis on the culture, language if applicable and necessaryhistory, literature of the country that corresponds to the international portion of the program, international law, international labor policy, global issues, global institutions, global conflict and negotiation, and global economics; A one- or two-semester sequence of technical courses related to the major and, possibly, culture, history, and literature courses taken at an international university; A two-month or longer technical internship experience in the same country as the international educational experience.
Students must realize, however, that ultimately they alone are responsible for the planning of their own program and for satisfactory completion of the graduation requirements. Students are encouraged to consult with the academic counselors in the Engineering Student Affairs Office whenever they desire to change their program of study.
All Engineering majors are required to meet with their faculty advisor at least once each year. Normally, such students can stay on track, and are encouraged to do so, by enrolling in summer sessions at UCI or at other institutions when a petition has been approved in advance.
High-achieving students may declare a second major. Early consultation with the School is advisable. Required courses may be replaced by other courses of equivalent content if the student substantiates the merits of the courses in the program of study and obtains prior approval from faculty in the School.
Students should be aware that most Engineering courses require the completion of prerequisites. The sample programs shown in each departmental description constitute preferred sequences which take into account all prerequisites.
Undergraduate students who have high academic standing, who have completed the necessary prerequisites, and who have obtained permission from the School may qualify to take certain graduate-level courses. Career Advising The UCI Career Center provides services to students and alumni including career counseling, information about job opportunities, a career library, and workshops on resume preparation, job search, and interview techniques.
See the Career Center section for additional information. In addition, special career planning events are held throughout the year including an annual Career Fair. Individual career counseling is available, and students have access to the Career Library which contains information on graduate and professional schools in engineering, as well as general career information.
Proficiency Examinations A student may take a course by examination with the approval of the faculty member in charge of the course and the Dean of the School.
Normally, ability will be demonstrated by a written or oral examination; if a portion of the capability involves laboratory exercises, the student may be required to perform experiments as well.
The proficiency examination is not available for any course a student has completed at UCI. Honors Graduation with Honors. A general criterion is that students must have completed at least 72 units in residence at a University of California campus. Approximately 2 percent of the graduating class shall be awarded summa cum laude, 4 percent magna cum laude, and 10 percent cum laude, with no more than 16 percent being awarded honors.
