Bachelor of Science in Engineering
Civil Engineering majors are required to complete the following:
- CE 2110, 2211, 2251, 2411, 2710, 3110, 3120, 3220, 3510, CE 3520 or ENVE 3200, 3610, 4900W and 4920W;
- ENVE 2310;
- CHEM 1128Q or 1148Q;
- ENGR 1166
- MATH 2110Q and 2410Q;
- Professional Requirements courses (21 credits);
- Science elective (minimum of three credits);
- Elective courses (as needed to reach 128 credits total).
A minimum grade of C- is required in each of the following courses: CE 2110, 2211; CE 2251, 2410, 2710, 3110, 3120, 3220, 3510 and 4900W and 4920W; ENVE 2310.
The professional requirements are satisfied by 21 credits of 2000-level or higher courses in engineering, science, mathematics, or statistics, including MGMT 5335 or OPIM 3801. At least one course each from four of the following different technical areas must be selected:
- Construction Engineering and Management: CE 4210, 4220
- Environmental/Sanitary Engineering: ENVE 3220, 4310
- Geotechnical Engineering: CE 4510, 4530, 4541; ENVE 4540
- Hydraulic/Water Resources Engineering: ENVE 4810, 4820
- Structural Engineering: CE 3630, 3640
- Surveying/Geodetic: CE 2500, 4410
- Transportation Engineering: CE 4710, 4720, 4750
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; CHEM 2241, 2443; EEB 2208; GEOG 1300, 1302, or 2300; GSCI 1050, 1051; MARN 1002; NRE 1000, 1235, 2215, 3105, 3145; 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 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, www.abet.org.
