Advising Notes

  • GWS, GQ, GA, GH, GS, GN and GHA are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
  • US, IL, and US;IL are codes used to designate courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements. All students are required to take one IL and one US course before graduation. A course designated as US;IL may be used as a US or an IL, not both.
  • W suffix signifies the course satisfies the University Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.
  • (C)(S)(E)(T)(G) are recommended elective and technical elective courses for specific concentrations.

Program Notes

  • Students must complete a concentration in one of the following areas: Construction (C), Structural (S), Environmental (E), Transportation (T), or General (G).
  • Entrance to Major Requirements:
    • CHEM 110, MATH 140, MATH 141, PHYS 211, and PHYS 212 (with grade of 'C' or better)
    • Completed minimum 45 credits
    • Minimum GPA: 2.00
  • Graduation in this major requires a minimum of 127 total credits with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better.

Concentration List

Technical elective and elective courses can be selected from the following lists or from any other 300/400 Civil Engineering courses. Other 400-level engineering courses may be accepted with permission of the program coordinator. Students must carefully plan their program of study including course prerequisites and semester offerings. Students should check their degree audit and seek advice from their academic advisor.
