Only one undergraduate degree is awarded in civil engineering: The degree of Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.
This is the only designation that will appear on the student’s official transcript and diploma. However, the
elective courses in the undergraduate curriculum enable each student to gain increased depth in a specialty area of
interest. Each student, working with their advisor, is urged to choose the electives that best satisfy their individual
In the descriptive material that follows, the listed technical and supportive electives are recommendations
