Undergraduate Minors

Electing another course as your major does not mean you cannot learn about civil and environmental engineering. From civil and environmental systems, civil engineering and environmental engineering science, the three minors offered by CEE will expand your horizons and your education.

The Minor in Civil and Environmental Systems

The Civil and Environmental Systems minor is brand new for 2016-2017 and is unique because it combines principles and knowledge from across civil, environmental and systems engineering into a hyper-concentrated study focused on both the built and natural worlds.

The Minor in Civil and Environmental Systems consists of the following subjects:

1.020     Engineering Sustainability: Analysis and Design
1.022     Introduction to Network Models
1.041     Transportation Systems Modeling
1.075     Water Resource Systems
1.101     Introduction to Civil and Environmental Engineering Design I
1.102     Introduction to Civil and Environmental Engineering Design II


The Minor in Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineering Minor offers subjects that reflect the wide extent of education that now encompasses the field, including solid and fluid mechanics, materials, and new labs.

The Minor in Civil Engineering consists of the following subjects:
1.035     Mechanics of Materials
1.036     Structural Mechanics and Design
1.050     Solid Mechanics
1.060     Fluid Mechanics
1.101     Introduction to Civil and Environmental Engineering Design I
1.102     Introduction to Civil and Environmental Engineering Design II


The Minor in Environmental Engineering Science

The Environmental Engineering Science Minor makes the popular Traveling Research Environmental Experiences (TREX) fieldwork during the Independent Activities Period (IAP) a program requirement, because field research has proved essential to the CEE educational experience.

The Minor in Environmental Engineering Science consists of the following subjects:
1.018      Fundamentals of Ecology
1.060      Fluid Mechanics
1.061A    Transport Processes in the Environment I
1.070AJ  Introduction to Hydrology and Water Resources
1.080      Environmental Chemistry
1.091      Traveling Research Environmental eXperience (TREX): Fieldwork
1.106      Environmental Fluid Transport Processes and Hydrology Laboratory
1.107      Environmental Chemistry and Biology Laboratory
