Additional 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 3-credit IL course and one 3-credit 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.

Program Notes:

  1. Courses CHEM 110, MATH 140, MATH 141, MATH 251, PHYS 211 and PHYS 212 require a grade of C or better for entrance into the C E major.
  2. Courses MATH 140, MATH 141, PHYS 211, SUR 111, SUR 241, SUR 272, SUR 362, and SUR 372W require a C or better for graduation in the SUR E major.
  3. Courses C E 321, C E 332, C E 335, C E 336, C E 337, C E 340, C E 360, C E 370, E MCH 211, E MCH 212, E MCH 213 and SUR 111 require a C or better for graduation in the C E major.
  4. C E 3xx/4xx electives must be selected from two of three technical areas in the Civil Engineering program -- Structures (C E x4x), Hydrosystems (C E x6x), and Environmental (C E x7x).
  5. SUR 462, SUR 441, and SUR 455 may be substituted for a C E related areas technical elective if taken at the Wilkes-Barre campus prior to changing assignment to the University Park campus.
  6. For those students who complete the ROTC program, three ROTC credits may be used to substitute for E E 211/212 or M E 201 and three ROTC credits may be used to substitute for the GHA requirements.

Concurrent Degree Request and Acceptance Notes:

  • To be eligible for this program, a student must initially enroll in the SUR E program at the Wilkes-Barre campus. All SUR E majors are assigned an "entrance-to-major" (ETM) pool semester, even though they are already enrolled in a major.
  • Students in the SUR E major must make their request for concurrent degree status during their ETM pool semester, which is typically the spring semester of their second year.
  • ETM courses of CHEM 110, MATH 140, MATH 141, and PHYS 211 must be completed with a C or better before the request for concurrent degree status will be acted upon.
  • To be considered for the concurrent degree option, the applicant must have a cumulative grade-point average of 2.70 or higher at the time of the ETM pool year. However, if the ETM GPA requirement is higher due to enrollment controls in the C E department, the higher GPA will be used for admission to the major.
  • Upon acceptance in to the C E major, students will remain at the Wilkes-Barre campus to complete their third year of study. During the spring semester of the third year, students will request a change of campus from WB to UP for the fall semester of the fourth year (7th semester).
  • Students who wish to change their major to SUR E during their first year of study, and who are also in pursuit of the concurrent degree option, should contact the Surveying Engineering program chair to discuss feasibility of completing the option.
