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 coursesand upper-division coursework. Study abroad programs that focus on civil and environmental engineering can also count toward degree requirements.
Students complete roughly 90 credits of General Education courses, depending on course options selected. Students will typically complete the major of these classes in the freshmen and sophomore years.
In the junior and senior year, students complete upper-division major coursework. During this time, students explore areas of their interest while taking courses to meet Technical Elective and Upper-Division Engineering & Science Elective requirements.
