Course Descriptions

The civil engineering curriculum is designed to give the student a sound education in preparation for this people-oriented, public works profession. The first two years include courses that deal with the principles of mathematics, physical and engineering sciences on which engineering concepts are based, as well as courses in humanities and social sciences and introductory courses in engineering and design. The last two years are devoted to developing the necessary technical competence, as well as the ability to apply the knowledge that the student has acquired to the design and synthesis of complex civil engineering projects.

  • Credit Hours: 4R-0L-4C
  • Term Available: F
  • Graduate Studies Eligible: No
  • Prerequisites: None
  • Corequisites: CE 486

Codes and regulations provide a baseline of expectation for civil engineering practice, and in turn, engineers influence the codes and regulations to create new best practices. This course examines how civil engineers interact with public policy and the legal system to work within CE codes and regulations. This course also includes discussion around the ASCE Code of Ethics and how it relates to the need for community engagement, professional norms, and professional best practices that impact engineering practice.
