Engineering 98 is a student-run seminar (DeCal) designed and taught by Berkeley engineering upperclassmen. The course covers everything an incoming engineering student needs to know in a casual class setting. Our goal is to help every incoming engineer gain the wisdom of an upper-division student while making long-lasting connections with upperclassmen and fellow students. E98 is designed to help you. It’s a course that actually helps you with your other classes, and hopefully your life at Cal as well. That said, please take advantage of this time to participate in class, listen to your instructors, interact with your classmates, and get your questions answered sooner rather than later. Never be afraid to voice your concerns in class, as an E98 section is a discussion and not a monologue. This class has biweekly homework assignments geared toward helping you with your professional career. Some example assignments include creating a resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn account. Most of the learning will happen through in-class discussions, so we require students to miss no more than 3 classes.
