Civil Engineering: Environmental Emphasis Major
The Environmental Emphasis Option in Civil Engineering is designed to produce graduates who are prepared for professional, technical and scientific, engineering work in environmental clean-up, restoration, protection, and preservation. The environmental option in civil engineering is designed to meet accreditation criteria specified by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). As a result, Carroll graduates with a major in Civil Engineering – Environmental Emphasis will be eligible to take the two Professional Engineering licensure exams and thereby earn a Professional Engineer license. The civil engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board of Engineering & Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202- 4012. Telephone: 410-347-7700.
The Civil Engineering: Environmental Emphasis Program has adopted the philosophy and goals of the department. The four major areas of study with the Program are: structures, environmental, water resources, and transportation.
II. Other Program Requirements
Students must take the Fundamental of Engineering (FE) exam within nine months prior to receiving the degree.
To earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in civil engineering environmental emphasis, a student must earn a grade of “C” or better in all of the courses listed under “Major Program Requirements” and under “Other Program Requirements.” A lesser grade in any of these courses must be replaced before the Bachelor of Arts degree will be granted. In addition, lesser grades in any of these courses preclude taking subsequent courses for which the deficient courses are a prerequisite.
