BSCE Technical Electives

Construction, Energy, and Sustainable Infrastructure  Transportation Engineering  Geotechnical Engineering  Structural Engineering  Hydrology & Hydrodynamics  Environmental Engineering  Non-Area Specific

Technical Electives are CEE 400-level courses that provide students with in-depth knowledge and design experience.

For breadth, students are required to satisfy an area requirement by taking at least one course from three of the six designated areas of emphasis (Construction, Environmental, Geotechnical, Hydrology/Hydrodynamics, Structural, and Transportation). Additional 400-level CEE Technical Elective courses (including those listed in the Non-Area Specific category) will count toward the Technical Electives requirement until 15 credits is reached. Courses to meet the area requirement must be completed with a minimum grade of 2.0.

Once the Technical Electives requirement is satisfied, additional credits from the lists below will count toward the Upper Division Engineering & Science Electives requirement.

* Courses with an asterisk are listed across multiple areas. Students can only apply these courses toward one area.
