* Eighteen credit hours of general education electives are chosen in accordance with the general education requirements of the College of Engineering and the following departmental requirements:
- The program must contain at least 6 credit hours in the humanities.
- The program must contain at least 6 credit hours in social sciences It is strongly recommended that ECON 25100 be included in the program in social sciences.
- All general education courses must be taken for a grade.
† Thirty credit hours of electives are chosen in accordance with the following requirements:
- The elective course program shall be consistent with career objectives. For instance, one can elect to concentrate on a major in a specialized area with an integrated sequence of courses or can choose a general program in civil engineering by taking courses in several areas.
- At least 12 credit hours must be chosen from an approved list of introductory civil engineering courses to provide breadth of study.
- At least 9 credit hours must be chosen from an approved list of design-intensive civil engineering courses.
- At least 21 credit hours must be CE designated courses that must include two integrated sequences with a minimum of 6 credit hours in each.
- The remaining credit hours required must be selected in support of the career objectives of the student. See an advisor for current policies.
