Breadth and Depth Required Electives

Civil Engineering students must take a total of 6 breadth and depth electives.

Breadth Requirement:

Take one course in four of the six sub-discipline areas listed below.

Depth Requirement:

Take two additional courses in the sub-discipline areas in which you have already taken courses.

1)    You can either take two additional courses in one of the four sub-discipline areas in which you have already taken one course.

Students may apply graduate-level civil engineering courses to meet the depth and breadth electives. Please see an advisor to determine into which category the graduate-level courses fall. In general, 500-level versions of a course listed above would count in the same category as the 400-level course.
