Civil Engineering

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

Course descriptions

Civil Engineering majors are required to complete the following:

A minimum grade of C- is required in each of the following courses: CE 2110, 2211; CE 2251, 2410, 2710, 3110, 3120, 3510 and 4900W and 4920W; ENVE 2310.

Professional Requirements

The professional requirements are satisfied by 21 credits of 2000-level or higher courses in engineering, science, or mathematics or MGMT 5335 or OPIM 3801. At least one course each from four of the following different technical areas must be selected:

No course that was used to meet another Civil Engineering course requirement may double count as a Professional Requirement. Courses taken from the above list but not used to fulfill the four technical area requirements may be used to satisfy remaining professional requirements. Following is a list of suggested courses that may also be considered for the professional requirements: CE 2120; CE 3520 or ENVE 3200 (if both taken); CE 3610 or ENVE 3220 (if both taken); CE 3630 or 3640 (if both taken); CE 4610, 4730, 4740; EEB 3247; ECE 2000; GSCI 3710;

The science elective may be satisfied by: BIOL 1107; EEB 2208; GEOG 1300, 1302, or 2300; GSCI 1050, 1051; MARN 1002; NRE 3105; PSYC 1100. Other courses in areas complementary to Civil Engineering, such as biology, ecology, geology, or natural resources, may also be approved.

The Civil Engineering undergraduate program educational objectives are to prepare our alumni/ae with the knowledge and skills needed to: actively contribute to the advancement practice and profession of engineering practice in the public or private sectors in the technical areas of environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources engineering; recognize the importance of, and follow a path that can lead to licensure as professional engineers who design and construct solutions to civil engineering problems in the natural and built environments; and adopt and continuously practice life-long learning through post-graduate and professional education.
