ECE 15/35 WAIVER EXAM

The waiver exams are designed for incoming students who have taken a C programming or circuits course at a community college

and wish to receive transfer credit for UCSD ECE 15 or ECE 35. Students who did not pass ECE 15 or ECE 35 at UCSD

are not eligble to take the exam.

Students who completed a C programming or circuits course at an accredited 4-year university should submit a petition

to get course equivalency to the ECE Undergraduate Student Affairs Office in Jacobs Hall 2906.

The Undergraduate Petition is available on Tritonlink. Instructions on how to complete the petition form is available here.

UCSD Catalog Course Descriptions

15. Engineering Computation (4)

Students learn the C programming language with an emphasis on high-performance numerical computation. The commonality across programming languages of control structures, data structures, and I/O is also covered. Techniques for using Matlab to graph the results of C computations are developed. Prerequisites: a familiarity with basic mathematics such as trigonometry functions and graphing is expected but this course assumes no prior programming knowledge.

ECE 35. Introduction to Analog Design (4)

Fundamental circuit theory concepts, Kirchoff's voltage and current laws, Thevenin's and Norton's theorems,

loop and node analysis, time-varying signals, transient first order circuits, steady-state sinusoidal response.

(Course material and/or program fees may apply.) Prerequisites: Math. 20A–B; Math. 20C and

Physics 2B must be taken concurrently.
