BSCE degree requirements

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE) is a broad-based program which covers the department's six areas of engineering emphasis: construction, transportation, structural, geotechnical, hydrology & hydrodynamics, and environmental engineering. The BSCE degree is appropriate for students interested in general civil or in any of one of these sub-areas.

Students must complete a minimum of 180 credits to graduate, comprised of program prerequisites, general education courses, and major coursework. Study abroad programs that focus on civil and environmental engineering can also count toward degree requirements.

General Education courses and program prerequisites

Students complete roughly 90 credits of General Education courses, depending on course options selected. Students will typically complete the majority of these classes in their freshmen and sophomore years.

BSCE major coursework

Students typically complete their BSCE major coursework in their junior and senior years. During this time, students explore areas of their interest while taking courses to meet Technical Elective and Upper Division Engineering & Science Elective requirements.
