1 year of college-level physical science, including a physics course on mechanics and waves (e.g., Physics 7A)
1 semester engineering-level probability and statistics
Incoming students, including transfers to TE from within UCB, must take a TE's "Statistics/linear algebra diagnostic" at the beginning of their first semester in TE to determine if their linear algebra, and probability and statistics preparation is adequate (on a level similar to CE 93). The diagnostic does not emphasize memorization; rather, the 4-5 problems test whether the student can apply linear algebra and statistical concepts in solving simple transportation problems. If the student does not solve most of the problems easily or does not take the test, that student must enroll in CE 262 Analysis of Transportation Data during their first semester. This requirement cannot be deferred. Make sure a note has been place in your student file indicating how this requirement was satisfied. Students may remedy a lack of linear algebra knowledge by working through a suitable book, such as the Schaum's Outline Series.
