Civil Infrastructure, Minor


The Civil Infrastructure minor is intended to introduce engineering undergraduates to the engineering methodologies of mechanics, materials, analysis, design, and construction and to show how these are used in solving problems in the development maintenance, and operation of the built environment that is vital for any modern economy. Academic standards: At least a C in each course in the minor. Requirements: at least six (6) courses (18 credits), chosen as follows:

I. Required course:
