Additional Notes

 

 

C E Elective: C E Electives must be selected from two of three remaining technical areas in the program: Structures (X40); Water Resources Engineering (X60); Environmental Engineering (X70).

Health and Physical Activity Elective: Students who complete the ROTC Program may substitute 3 ROTC credits for the GHA requirement and 3 ROTC credits for M E 201.

Technical Elective: Select from department list. Students who complete the Cooperative Education Program may substitute the 3-credit sequence of ENGR 295, ENGR 395, and ENGR 495 for a Technical Elective.

 

** If a student is pursuing the Structural sub-discipline in Civil Engineering, if CE 340 is not taken in the 5th semester it may delay graduation.
