Civil Engineering Minor

The Minor in Civil Engineering encompasses three objectives:

  • Provide a meaningful experience in civil engineering, including advanced undergraduate courses, to students outside of the Civil Engineering major
  • Allow students in other majors to explore and analyze topics in the built environment that civil engineering encompasses
  • Enhance the learning experience of all students, including Civil Engineering majors, by having students from multiple majors in civil engineering courses, facilitating the interdisciplinary project work

To complete the minor, students must take five civil engineering courses. Students must complete all prerequisites (or be registered for any corequisites) required for the courses. Available courses include but are not limited to:
