Civil Concentration Program Outline


This outline applies to students who are entering the engineering curriculum during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 academic years.

Proposed Four Year Program Outline

The following program outline presents a path through the B.S. Engineering curriculum with a civil concentration. It is an example of how a student can successfully complete all requirements of the Engineering program within 4 years.

Please note that the program outline presented on this page is a suggestion only. Students with AP Credits should adjust their schedules accordingly. In addition, students may be able to swap classes among semesters, study abroad during their first or second years, or complete two concentrations within 8 to 9 semesters.

This guideline applies to students who are entering the engineering curriculum during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 academic years.

Common exceptions for students matriculating during the 2012-13 academic year:

  ENGR 232 Engineering Dynamics may be taken, but will not count towards the Civil Engineering Concentration
  1MATH 270 Advanced Math for the Sciences may be replaced by both Math 261 Linear Algebra AND MATH 308 Differential Equations
  2ENGR 333 Mechanics of Materials may be taken in the 5th semester, concurrent with ENGR 351 Analysis and Dynamics of Structures
