MINOR IN CIVIL ENGINEERING
A minor in Civil Engineering may be earned by a student in any University bachelor's degree program through successful completion of a minimum of 21 credits in Civil Engineering and engineering mechanics. Before beginning the Civil Engineering courses, the student must meet the required mathematics and physics prerequisites. A grade of C- or better is required in all of the courses completed for the minor.
The required Civil Engineering and engineering mechanics courses are the following:
Further, an additional 9 credits (3 courses) in Civil Engineering must be taken of which at least 6 credits must be at the 300-level or higher. Those courses shall be selected with the specific advice of an advisor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department to meet each student's objectives. For students oriented toward earth sciences these might include CIEG 320, CIEG 323 and CIEG 321; for those interested in the environment, CIEG 331 and CIEG 438; for those interested in urban topics, CIEG 331 and CIEG 351; for those with interests in construction and structures, CIEG 301 and CIEG 302; for those interested in the oceans, CIEG 440 and CIEG 471.
Accomplishment of a minor in Civil Engineering has many advantages for students who are earning degrees in other sciences such as geology or in other professional areas such as business administration, but it must be understood that meeting the requirements for a minor in Civil Engineering without fulfilling the remaining requirements for an accredited engineering degree does not provide the breadth and depth of knowledge required to be a Civil Engineer.
