Curriculum
Course Schedules

The MBP curriculum consists of 13 units of coursework, which need to be completed in the first three quarters (1st fall - 1st winter - 1st spring), and 8 units of full-time contiguous research (approximately 1,000 hours), which need to be completed in the subsequent two quarters.

Many students choose to enroll in an optional industrial or academic tuition-free internship, which extends the duration of the program from 15 to 21 months (7 quarters). The internship can precede the research and occur in the 1st summer - 2nd fall quarters, or it can follow the research and occur in the 2nd winter-2nd spring quarters.

1st Fall (4.0 Units)

1st Winter (5.0 Units)

1st Spring (4.5 Units)

1st Summer & 2nd Fall (7.5 Units)

If the optional internship is chosen for the 1st summer-2nd fall quarters, then the research is delayed until during the 2nd winter-2nd spring quarters. Alternatively, the optional internship can be completed after the research, during the 2nd winter-2nd spring quarters.
