Civil Engineering and Construction Engineering Management

Undergraduate Programs

Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (code CE__BS01) (131 units)

Mission

To educate and prepare students to succeed in the civil engineering profession by providing them with essential technical tools and skills which will enable them to perform current and future civil engineering tasks and to promote the need for life long learning.

Educational Objectives

The Civil Engineering Program Educational Objectives are to produce graduates, who after entering the civil engineering practice with a knowledge of fundamental civil engineering principles, current technologies and tools, communication skills and practical design experience, will:

  • 1. Pursue lifelong learning through continuing education and/or advanced degrees in civil engineering or other related fields.
  • 2. Progress to professional registration.
  • 3. Continue to develop professionally through participation in professional organizations and/or participation in professional development activities in the industry.
  • 4. Progress to management and/or other leadership positions in their fields.

Degree Progress

Students must complete the following requirements within one calendar year of declaring the major. Some students may need to take courses during Summer Session to meet these requirements. At the end of the year, students who have not met the requirements must either declare another major or meet with an Academic Advisor to determine if the student's performance in the courses merits an additional semester to complete.

First-Time Freshmen: A grade "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 122 within one calendar year.

Transfer Students: A grade "C" or better must be achieved in MATH 123 and PHYS 151 within one calendar year.
