Please refer to the Four Year Plan for departmental recommended path towards graduation.  

University Requirements:


College Requirements:


  • The College of Engineering requires nine additional breadth credits (21 credits total including the University Breadth requirements) (minimum grade of C-).
    • These nine credits may be selected in any combination from the University Breadth Requirements  list and the College of Engineering Breadth Requirement List  in any category except Math, Natural Sciences and Technology.
    • Of the 21 credits, six credits must be at the Upper Level, defined as:
      • any 300-level or higher course on the University Breadth Requirement list (excluding Math, Natural Sciences and Technology courses)
      • any 300-level or higher course on the College of Engineering Breadth Requirement list (excluding Math, Natural Sciences and Technology courses)
      • any foreign language instruction course at the 107 level or higher as designated on the College of Engineering Breadth Requirement list (some courses above the 107 level do NOT count toward this requirement because they are taught in English).
    • A maximum of two courses (six credits) can be taken from the Career and Professional Preparation sub-section of the College of Engineering Breadth Requirement list to satisfy the College of Engineering additional breadth requirement.
    • Of the 21 credits, three credits may be used to satisfy the University Multicultural Requirement (recommended for timely progress toward degree completion.)
    • With few exceptions, students may not use courses from their major to satisfy Breadth Requirement coursework.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Courses taken from the College of Engineering Breadth Requirement list can ONLY count toward the additional nine credits of breadth the College of Engineering requires for its majors. They CANNOT count for University Breadth.

Academic Standards


Students pursuing any engineering major (except Computer Science or Information Systems) must have at least a 2.0 grade point average in all engineering, mathematics, and science courses used to fulfill graduation requirements. If a course is repeated, only the last grade will be used to compute the engineering grade point average; all grades are used to compute the University’s cumulative grade point index. Credit from courses taken pass/fail cannot be used to complete any engineering degree requirement, unless the course is only offered pass/fail in the engineering curriculum.

Major Requirements:


Minimum grade of C- required in:

Technical Electives:


Twelve credits of technical elective courses in the Environmental Engineering curriculum give students the opportunity to complete their education by focusing in an area of special interest. The technical electives can also be chosen to provide a more general environmental engineering education. Technical electives must satisfy the following requirements:

1. Technical electives will include courses from engineering, mathematics, and the sciences, or by the approval of the Environmental Engineering Undergraduate Committee.

2. All technical electives must be 300-level or higher, or by approval of the Environmental Engineering Undergraduate Committee.

The following is a list of technical electives approved for Environmental Engineering. Some of these courses may not be offered a particular year. Some courses offered in other departments may also be approved as technical electives, per the requirements stated above.
