Would a University accept me for engineering if I didn't take any physics courses?

<p>I'm a math major and I'm primarily applying for a BA in math (UCs only), which usually doesn't require physics (usually BS in math does).. depending on the school. I know that UCB and UCSD don't require physics at all for a BA (according to assist.org)</p>

<p>I also want to apply to other schools as a computer engineer but I haven't taken any physics courses..except Physics 1. But I have built a few desktop gaming computers for myself if that counts for anything. Do you think I have a chance at all at getting into a California University as a computer engineer? If so, which colleges?</p>

<p>I'll have about a 3.75 by the time i transfer</p>

<p>uh..no. sorry</p>

<p>No chance at all. Physics is usually a pre-req for your engineering classes. If you transfer without physics it is like starting out as a freshman.</p>

<p>You can get into UCSD without physics if you have TAG + IGETC. Beware though it if you go that route it will take 3-4 years at UC to graduate and you will basically be starting as a freshmen.</p>

<p>Don't take a major that requires physics if you don't have it. It didn't work for me, lol.</p>

<p>Why not apply to the generic major, get the physics done while you're there, and then get into the engineering major?</p>

<p>@wwlink</p>

<p>you mean apply as undeclared in the letters & science field or whatever, do physics classes while im there, and then declare an engineering major? hmmm....</p>

<p>You won't be given enough time at UCB to finish the major if that is your plan. I got into UCSD as an EE without having any physics courses yet. I already know I'll be at UCSD for at least 3 years. I don't care because I've only been a full-time student for one year anyways.</p>

<p>"But I have built a few desktop gaming computers for myself if that counts for anything."</p>

<p>Uh oh...</p>

<p>Don't recommend it bro... If you want engineering, you should stay another year at your CC. Don't go swimming in the deep end without your floaties on..</p>

<p>Assuming money is not an issue, why spend another year at CC? If anything, transferring before finishing the physics sequence will actually save you time because while you are doing the physics classes you can get a jump start on the lower division engineering classes that are not offered at CC and are prereqs for the upper division courses.</p>
