A minor in Civil Engineering is available for non-departmental majors who would like an overview of the principles of civil engineering. Students wishing to pursue a minor in civil engineering must complete 17-18 credits in addition to the prerequisite courses of AS.171.101 General Physics: Physical Science Major I, AS.110.108 Calculus I (Physical Sciences & Engineering), and AS.110.109 Calculus II (For Physical Sciences and Engineering).
The minor consists of the following:
- two fundamental civil engineering courses + a lab
- two semesters of CaSE Careers (an undergraduate seminar course)
- three courses in one technical area of your choice (Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Mechanics of Materials, or Systems Engineering)
*Students completing courses in the area of Geotechnical Engineering will complete the minor with 18 credits instead of 17; Soil Mechanics is a 4-credit course.
All courses used to meet the Civil Engineering minor must be C- or higher.
