Civil Engineering Track

Civil engineering is critically important today as our communities strain to sustain limited natural resources, accommodate growth, and replace worn, declining infrastructure.

Pursue our Civil Engineering track, within our general engineering degree program, to create innovative design built on strong fundamentals for the sustainability of existing structures, and for sustainable designs of new structures and systems.

Structural Design Track

Core in the area of Mechanics and Materials with a focus in Structural Design.

  • General Department Requirements (GDR)
    Core (CORE) Restricted Elective (RE)
    Unrestricted Electives (UE)
    Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS)
