The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering program gives students the tools they need to make an impact in tomorrow’s world engineering transportation networks and other infrastructure. The program takes advantage of the University’s high-technology capabilities to give students opportunities that are often unavailable elsewhere. Students can develop personal study programs in topics ranging from hurricane and wind engineering to energy conservation, green engineering, and even designing extraterrestrial habitations.
Students begin this program by completing the College of Engineering’s Freshman Engineering Program. The program includes a general education core of Speech and College Success, introductions to engineering and computing, plus courses in calculus, analytical geometry, and physics for engineers.
The program requires successful completion of a minimum of 128 semester hours and may be completed in eight regular semesters. Students entering this program should have high school-level competence in physics and chemistry. They should already be proficient in algebra and trigonometry and prepared to enter Calculus I.
The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering program requires successful completion of a minimum of 128 semester hours. The program may be completed in eight regular semesters, assuming appropriate background and full-time enrollment. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 is needed for all required CIV, AE, EE, EGR, and ES courses, including engineering electives.
Students should be aware that several courses in each academic year may have prerequisites and/or corequisites (check the course descriptions before registering for classes to ensure requisite sequencing).
