Double major in Haas and School of Engineering

<p>1) Is it allowed?
2) Is it suicidal, even for someone with very good time management skills?
3) Does anyone do it?
4) Are there minors in the school of engineering?</p>

<p>Thanks a lot.</p>

<li> Yes.</li>
<li> Depends.</li>
<li> Yes.
05.05.2003</a> - Innovative engineering and business graduate Ankur Luthra named University Medalist</li>
<li> Yes.</li>

<p>Ah, good old Ankur..</p>

<li>lol Ankur. Realistically, no. (by which I mean, you probably won't ever meet one)</li>

<p>I mean, you can do it if all you want to do is take classes and study for the next four years. But no one wants to do that. Most people in engineering (that I know of) do it because 1) they applied as engineering, 2) they want the money, 3) they're Asian and don't know what else to do, etc. Most of them don't REALLY like it. I think some people, coming out of high school near the top of their class, are feeling good about themselves. They think engineering and Haas sounds cool because it's challenging and you'll earn a lot of money. But then you start to realize college classes are pretty different from high school classes, and you don't really want to spend all of your free time trying to understand electrical circuits or fluid mechanics. So yeah, I wouldn't recommend it.</p>

<p>Employers likely aren't going to pay you more because you have a BS in engineering and a BS in business. Most entry jobs will value you for your engineering skills...or your business's nice to have both, but not much of a premium will be given for the work involved.</p>

<p>My opinion is to focus on a BS in engineering. Work for a couple years and then get an MBA.</p>

<p>i was wondering the same thing...thanks for the advice!</p>

<p>I believe the requirements were different back when Ankur attended Cal.</p>

<p>If he got "a 4.0 average, over half of which were A+ grades," and he got 16 A+'s according to the article, he couldn't have taken more than 30 classes. He wasn't enrolled in any of the summer sessions, either.</p>

<p>30 classes for UGBA and EECS combined is impossible given the current major requirements.</p>

<p>It's pretty hard to do without coming in with a load of AP courses under your belt.</p>

1. Math 53 (4)
2. Math 54 (4)
3. Math 55 / CS 70 (4)
4. Phys 7B (4)
5. EE 20 (4)
6. EE 40 (4)
7. CS 61A (4)
8. CS 61C (4)
9-13. Upper division electives (5 * 4 = 20)
14. E 190 (3)</p>

1. 10 (3)
2. 100 (2)
3. 101A (3)
4. 101B (3)
5. 102A (3)
6. 102B (3)
7. 103 (4)
8. 105 (3)
9. 106 (3)
10. 107 (3)
11-20. Upper division electives (32)</p>

<p>And this doesn't even count the prerequisite</a> courses needed to gain admission into Haas.</p>

<p>Unless the requirements were different back then (I've heard that there was once a business minor), or Ankur took more than 30 courses (contrary to what the article implies), I don't see how it is possible.</p>
