The Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering and Mechanics offers Bachelor of Science degrees in civil engineering, including an emphasis in construction management, and architectural engineering as well as multiple specialized programs and a minor in civil engineering.
BS in Civil Engineering
Students interested in building and maintaining the physical structures of society through design, construction and management pursue a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. The program covers the following subject areas:
- Construction engineering management
- Environmental engineering
- Geotechnical engineering and geomechanics
- Hydrology, hydraulic engineering and water resources engineering
- Structural engineering
- Transportation, traffic, highway and airport engineering
Construction Engineering Management Emphasis
Through CAEM’s Construction Engineering Management emphasis, students can focus on technical engineering and the business side of the construction industry. Technical electives in construction management, scheduling, and quantity take-off and cost estimating complement seminars on leadership, internships, construction site visits, guest speakers, clubs and competitions.
For more information, see Construction Engineering Management (PDF).
BS in Architectural Engineering
The Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering is for students concentrating on design concepts and multidisciplinary engineering principles. Subjects include:
- Architectural lighting
- Engineering economics
- Materials processing
- Structural health analysis and monitoring
- Water and energy efficiency
Civil Engineering Minor
A minor in civil engineering requires completion of 20 units, with at least nine from upper-division coursework and at least three in residence:
- 17 units from CE 323, CE 333, CE 343, CE 363, and either CHEE 370R or CE 381
- Three units from CE 334 or CE 335
A cumulative GPA of 2.0 in these courses is required to fulfill the civil engineering minor. Use the academic advisement report (PDF) to keep track of your progress toward a minor.
