Additional Calculus for Engineers (ACE)

Additional Calculus for Engineers (ACE) is designed to provide the skills and solid foundation in mathematics, computational math in engineering,  and computer science to undergraduate students interested in pursuing an engineering degree.

Students participating in ACE are required to attend an additional weekly section and enroll in their selected course for 1 additional unit. ACE participants will 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. 

Structure

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 class lecture:
     
    • Math: 19, 20, 21, 51, 52, 53
    • CME: 100 or 102
    • CS (Pathfinders): 106A/B or 107
  2. Apply to ACE by completing the ACE Program Application.
  3. Students will be notified of their acceptance to ACE within 1 week of the application close date. 
  4. Once you have been notified of your acceptance to the ACE program, you will either receive a permission number via email to register for the section or will be directed to attend the first ACE section of the quarter to receive a permission number and enrollment instructions from the Course Assistant to complete the registration process.

Courses

ACE is offered in conjunction with the Math 19 and Math 50 series, in addition to the Computational and Mathematical Engineering CME 100 series and Computer Science 106 A/B and CS 107.
 
NOTE: Not all courses are offered every quarter.
