CEEM Program Specific Requirements

Major requirements and electives (18 units, 1 unit of Graduate seminar)

-        Developed by student and approved by advisor,

-        The majority of these units must be Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics courses

-        A maximum of 3 units of independent study may be applied

-        These courses must 500 or above with course approval from advisor

Practice-oriented project (0 units)

-        No project is required for this degree

-        A 3 unit independent study can be used to provide this experience

A student must focus in one emphasis area (geotechnical, hydraulics, structures, transportation, or engineering mechanics) but may take elective courses in more than emphases.
