Civil Engineering Curriculum


(131 S.H. Required)

Major Requirements


The program shown below is the recommended sequence for a major in civil engineering. A customized program is available in consultation with your faculty advisor, although it must meet minimum ABET-related standards. It is expected that each student will have at least two classes with a minimum of two 3- or 4-semester-hour upper division classes in each of the General, Structural, Water Resources, Environmental, Geotechnical, Transportation, and Sustainability Engineering tracks for graduation. Students may focus in one or more areas of civil engineering by selecting a minimum of three electives in a particular area of concentration. Electives cannot count for any more than one area of concentration. Selected elective courses will be offered during each academic year.

A minimum of 32 semester hours of science and math, and 48 semester hours of engineering topics are required.

Upper Division Requirements:


Freshman Year


Total: 14-15 semester hours

Spring Semester


Total: 17-18 semester hours
