Additional Calculus for Engineers (ACE)

Additional Calculus for Engineers (ACE) is designed to provide the skills and solid foundation in mathematics to students interested in pursuing an engineering major. 

We accept applications from all students who believe they may benefit from participating in small active-learning sessions led by a highly trained graduate student. 


CME STUDENTS, enroll first  in regular CME 100 or CME 102  sections. Apply to the ACE program as soon as possible to reserve a permission number. Spots are limited. Once you receive a permission number, you can enroll in CME 100A or CME 102A . You must  be enrolled in the regular section to be eligible to transfer to the ACE section. 

Generally, students in ACE are required to attend three one-hour lectures and two one-hour sections a week. (CME students taking five-unit courses are required to attend at least four hours of lecture a week.) ACE students will attend the usual three one-hour lectures but will attend two two-hour sections and an additional one-hour session for problem solving. 

  1. Enroll in Math 19, 20, 21, 51, 52, 53 or CME 100 or 102, or CS 106A, CS 106B or CS 107
  2. Apply to ACE 
  3. Attend lecture starting on the first day
  4. Students will be notified of their acceptance to ACE before the end of Fall Quarter. Permissions numbers will be distributed in class during week one.
