Additional Calculus for Engineers (ACE)

Additional Calculus for Engineers (ACE) is designed to provide a solid foundation in mathematics, computational math in engineering, and computer science to undergraduate students interested in pursuing an engineering degree. Taught by experienced graduate students, the program gives undergrads the support and resources they need to advance in their studies.

Students participating in ACE are required to attend an additional weekly section and enroll in their selected course for 1 additional unit. ACE participants also receive access to additional exam review sessions, individual tutoring, and other study resources. 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. 

Application Process & Courses

​Generally, students in ACE are required to attend the usual course lectures for either CME, CS (Pathfinders), or Math, and the graduate student-led ACE section for the class. ACE sections are scheduled so that they do not conflict with the course lecture time.

  1. Enroll in your course lecture:

    • Math: 20 or 53

      • Note: Students who are interested in Math 21A and Math 51A should complete this Math application. 

    • CME: 102 or 104

    • CS 100A/B, CS 103A, CS 107A, CS 109A, and CS 110A 

  2. Apply to ACE by completing the ACE Program Application by March 24th 2021 at 5 PM. 

  3. Students will be notified of their acceptance to ACE within 1 week of the application close date. 

  • Note:Students who are accepted into Math 21A andMath 51A will benotified prior to the start of the quarter

  4. Once you have been notified of your acceptance to the ACE program, we will either:

  • Send you a permission number via email to register for the section
