Notes


1 The physics/chemistry elective is satisfied by taking either PH 2031  or both CH 302  and CH 303 ; the science elective may be selected from BI or SC prefixed courses (CH or PH prefixed courses do not count) or CV 502; the math/science elective may be selected from (1) any MA 300 level and above course (except MA 340 MA 3501 , and MA 3502 ), (2) any BI or SC prefixed course, (3) any CH 200 level and above course, (4) any PH 300 level and above course, or (5) CV 502 . A minimum of 10 credits total from these courses is required for graduation. 

2 All students must choose one of the three specialization tracks within civil engineering: ConM - Construction Management, EWRE - Environmental and WasteWater Engineering, or StrE - Structural Engineering.

3 There are 15 credits of humanities and social sciences (HU/SS) electives: 6 credits minimum from the humanities and 6 credits minimum from the social sciences; at least 3 credits must be selected from the political science series (SS-45X)

4 There are 8 credits of undergraduate technical electives that may be selected from the engineering, science, math, or business areas (200-level or above).  A course used to satisfy the science, physics/chemistry, or math/science elective requirements cannot be used to satisfy this requirement.

Graduate electives may be chosen from AE, CV, and MB prefixed courses numbered 500/5000 and above 

6 May substitute BA 1221  or BA 2222  for BA 2220 .

7 Required for ConM specialty students only.

8 May substitute 3 credits of graduate electives for this course.

Students are required to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam in their senior year, as a condition of graduation.

Admission to the MS portion of the BS/MS CVE program in the student’s senior year is contingent upon maintaining a minimum overall MSOE GPA of 3.0 or above and the student will have to apply in writing, and admission is at the discretion of the Program Director.

Students in the Air Force ROTC program can make the following substitution: AF 4142  for SS-45X course.
