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, 2251, 2411, 2710, 3110, 3120, 3220, 3510 and 4900W and 4920W; ENVE 2310E.

Professional Requirements

The professional requirements are satisfied by 21 credits of 2000-level or higher courses in engineering, science, mathematics, or statistics, including MGMT 5335, OPIM 3801, or up to three credits of ART 3670. At least one course each from four of the following different technical areas must be selected:

No course that was used to meet another requirement for the Civil Engineering program may double count as a Professional Requirement. This includes university general education requirements and requirements for the School of Engineering. Courses taken from the above list but not used to fulfill the four technical area requirements may be used to satisfy remaining professional requirements.

The science elective may be satisfied by: BIOL 1107; CHEM 2241, 2443EEB 2208; GEOG 1300, 1302, or 2300E; GSCI 1050, 1051; MARN 1002; NRE 1000, 1235, 2215E3105, 3145. 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 practice and profession of engineering, including management and administration, in the public, private or academic sectors in the technical areas of construction, environmental, geotechnical, structural, transportation, and water resources engineering;
  • Follow a path towards leadership in the profession that can include licensure as professional engineers who design and construct solutions to civil engineering problems in the natural and built environments; and
  • Practice life-long learning through post-graduate and professional education.

The Civil Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,
