Civil Engineering Degree Requirements

Civil Engineering Course Requirements

Major in Civil Engineering

The civil engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The four major areas of study with the Program are: structures, environmental, water resources, and transportation.

The following requirements are as listed in the Carroll College catalog.

I. Major Program Requirements

  • ENGR 104 Engineering Graphics and CAD Applications
  • ENGR 105 Introduction to Engineering
  • ENGR 155 Robotics and Experimental Physics
  • ENGR 205 Civil Engineering Materials and Testing
  • ENGR 302 Engineering Mechanics I: Statics
  • ENGR 303 Engineering Mechanics II: Solids
  • ENGR 307 Fluid Mechanics
  • ENGR 310 Structures I
  • ENGR 313 Hydrology
  • ENGR 401 Hydraulics
  • ENGR 405 Water and Wastewater
  • ENGR 409 Transportaiton Engineering II
  • ENGR 411-412 Senior Design Project I and II

II. Emphasis Requirements

A. Broadfield Emphasis Requirements (these courses not required for students majoring in Civil Engineering with an Environmental Emphasis)

  • ENGR 202 Water Distribution
  • ENGR 305 Electronics and Circuit Analysis 
  • ENGR 309 Geotechnical Engineering
  • ENGR 326 Energy and the Environment
  • ENGR 402 Environmental Engineering
  • ENGR 403 Structures II: LRFD Steel Design
  • ENGR 406 Structures III: Concrete

B. Environmental Emphasis Requirements (these courses are not required for students majoring in Civil Engineering with a Broadfield Emphasis)

  • ENGR 323 Water Quality
  • ENGR 324 Air Quality
  • ENGR 325 Hydrogeology
  • ENGR 326 Energy and the Environment
  • ENGR 327 Land and Stream Restoration
  • ENGR/HS 329 Public Health and the Environment
  • ENGR 424 Ground Water Flow Modeling

III. Other Program Requirements

  • EC 203 Project Management Economics
  • CH 111 Essentials of Chemistry: General
  • BI 101 Life Science or BI 102 Human Biology
  • MA 131 Calculus of Single Variable Functions or MA 121-122 Differential and Integral Calculus
  • MA 141 Introduction to Mathematical Modeling
  • MA 233 Multivariable Calculus
  • MA 334 Differential Equations and Linear Algebra II
  • MA 314 Probability and Statistics for Engineers
  • PHIL 206 or 207 Ethics course*
  • PHYS 205-206 Engineering Physics

Students must take the Fundamental of Engineering (FE) exam within nine months prior to receiving the degree.

Students must also complete the Carroll College CORE curriculum requirements (Carroll College catalog).

To earn a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in civil engineering, 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 Science degree with a major in civil engineering will be granted. In addition, lesser grades in any of these courses preclude taking subsequent courses for which the deficient courses are a prerequisite.

*PHIL 206 or 207 are recommended, but any philosophy ethics course is acceptable.
