Definitions for "unit"
A fixed amount of scholastic study used as a basis for calculating academic credits. College units for a course often equal the number of hours per week the course meets. You must earn a specific number of units to receive a degree.
"Credits" and "units" are synonymous. Units of credit are awarded for each course passed. Lecture and discussion classes are usually 3 units for three hours of classes per week per semester; activity and lab classes take usually 2 or 3 hours per week and are awarded one unit of credit. You may also receive some credit by examination. The credits or units granted by SDSU are called "semester units". If you transfer from another institution (UCSD, for example) with quarter units, they are converted into semester units by multiplying by 2/3. Thus, if you transferred to SDSU with 60 quarter units, SDSU would grant you 40 semester units towards your degree from SDSU. See Unit Requirements in the Graduation Requirements section of this web site for the number of semester credits (units) needed for a degree.
In high school, two semesters or one year of work in a single subject. A specified number of units, and sometimes specific units, is required for admission to colleges and universities. See Academic Subjects.

Units can be formally time-tabled as in for example a lecture and seminar unit, or contain a substantial amount of self-directed study as in for example a dissertation.

The test of a specific code function; unit testing is performed by the programmer to verify the most basic of functionality before the code is passed to anyone else. With respect to a web site, a unit is the design for a specific page or category of page, and the functional specification would detail the functional elements of that page or page type. For example, the design for the page may require the following functions: email submission form, search form, context-sensitive navigation elements, logic to drop and/or read a client-side cookie, etc. These aren't "look" issues so much as they are "functionality" issues. A component is a set of page states or closely related forms of a page. For example, a component might include a page that has a submission form, the acknowledgement page (i.e., "thanks for submitting"), and the various error states (i.e., "you must include your email address", "you must fill in all required fields", etc.).

See APPROPRIATE UNIT. Distinguish between "union" and "unit" (or "bargaining unit"). A "unit" is a grouping of employees (occupying certain types of positions) for collective bargaining purposes. A "union" is an organization that either is, or seeks to be, the exclusive representative (for collective bargaining purposes) of all the employees in a bargaining unit. Do not confuse "unit" member and "union" member. Whether one is in, or not included in, a unit depends on the unit description (in terms of types of positions) and whether the position one occupies is encompassed by the unit description. An employee cannot elect to be in or out of an existing unit: inclusion or exclusion depends on the position the employee occupies. Being a union member, on the other hand, is a matter of choice. Although, e.g., management officials and supervisors cannot be included in units (see 5 USC § 7112(b)(1)), nothing prevents them from becoming members of unions. Similarly, there is no obligation--at least in the Federal sector's labor-management relations program--for employees in a unit to join a union. See 5 USC § 7102.
