Civil Engineering B.S.C.E.
Eight-Semester Degree Program

The Civil Engineering B.S.C.E. program is eligible for freshman students who want to participate in an Eight-Semester Degree Program. See the Eight-Semester Degree Policy for details of the program.

The following section contains the list of courses required for the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree and a suggested sequence. Not all courses are offered every semester, so students who deviate from the suggested sequence must pay careful attention to course scheduling and course prerequisites.

See the list of state minimum core courses available for engineering students.
