UROP, REST and GEL July 7, 2014

Hi Folks!

Just a few reminders as you create/update your 2-A concentrations:

  • UROPs can NOT be counted in your concentration or as extra engineering units. If you would like to include a research project as part of your concentration, please sign up for Thesis.
  • Your 2-A contract must include one REST (unless you have substituted 18.03).

    Additional RESTs can only be counted in your concentration if they are prerequisites to upper level courses in your concentration. For example, suppose your concentration includes 6.00, 6.01, 6.006, and 6.042. 6.00 counts as your required REST subject. 6.042 is also a REST but it is allowed as an additional REST because it is a prerequisite to 6.006. However, if you remove 6.006 from your concentration, you must also remove 6.042 from your concentration (regardless of whether or not you have already taken it), or replace 6.006 with another class that has 6.042 as a prereq.

  • GEL classes. ESD.051 may be counted in your concentration and carries full engineering units. ESD.052 and ESD.054 may be counted in the concentration but they carry NO engineering units. ESD.05 does not carry any engineering units and does not count as an upper level course and hence cannot be counted in the concentration

One final word of advice — don’t fear the thesis! Research is fun and UROP is just one of many ways to do it!
