Admission to Upper Division

The first two years of the curriculum are considered to be lower division and the remaining two years upper division. Students must apply for upper division status in Civil Engineering in order to be admitted to selected upper-division Civil Engineering courses.  Factors considered include overall grade point average, performance in selected lower division courses and a reflective statement of why you wish to be a Civil Engineer. Upper division status is only a prerequisite for CE 320, CE 352, CE 360, and CE 370.

Design across the curriculum

How courses establish fundamentals and prepare you for progressively more complex and specialized classes throughout the course of your degree.
