CE Science Electives

Science Elective is defined as a science course from a field that is not Chemistry or Physics that expands the student’s understanding of the nature of an aspect of Civil Engineering. Courses in addition to those listed may be used to meet this requirement with the approval of the Civil Engineering Faculty.

Note: Some courses listed below require PRE/COREQS which are not a part of the Civil Engineering Curriculum and can require additional coursework.
