Technical Electives

The BCivE program requires 17 electives.

  • 6 credits — CEGE technical electives. All CEGE courses at the 4000 level or higher that are not part of the core curriculum can be used as technical electives.
  • 11 credits — technical electives. All courses from the College of Science and Engineering (including CEGE courses) at the 4000 level or higher are acceptable as technical electives. CEGE 1101, CEGE 3111, and CEGE 3202 can also be counted toward this requirement.

Other courses can be used as technical electives with specific approval from a student’s faculty advisor.
