Civil Infrastructure Concentration

This concentration merges structural form with the mechanics of engineering materials to design and analyze structures using both modern computing and engineering know-how. Civil infrastructure encompasses the physical components that comprise our cities, transportation networks, and public utilities such as water and electrical distribution systems. Structures range from buildings, bridges, towers, and roads, to tunnels, dams, aqueducts, pipelines, and space stations.  

The Civil Infrastructure concentration includes an emphasis on the mechanics of materials ranging from steel and concrete to 3D printed parts and composite systems. Courses include the dynamics of structures, the behavior of materials, the management of building operations, and the mechanics that underpin how structures carry loads, deform, and fail.

a. Must take one additional basic science course.This course may simultaneously satisfy another requirement such as advisor approved elective.  Courses meeting that requirement are:  BIOG 1440, BIOEE 1610, BIOMG 1350, EAS 2200, 3030, 3050, 3410, 3420, and 3530.

b. May substitute CHEM 2080 or CHEM 1570 for PHYS 2214.

c. Students taking BEE 2510, ENGRD 3200 or CEE 3040 as the 2nd distribution course must take an additional Major-approved elective.

d. MAE 2030 (S) may be taken in the second year; CEE 4780  (S) should not be taken until the third or fourth year. Note that MATH 2940 is a co-requisite for CEE 4780.

e. ENGRD 3200 (S) may be taken in semesters 4 or 6

f. ENGRD 2700 may be accepted (by petition) to substitute for CEE 3040 if taken prior to affiliation in the Major or if necessary because of scheduling conflicts.

g. May substitute CEE 3720 for either BEE 2510 (F) or CEE 3610 (S) if one takes either CEE 4730 or 4740.  However, CEE 3720 then count as a Core Course only and not as one of the five CEE Design Courses or Major-Approved Electives.

h. If the technical communication requirement is met with a course that fulfills another requirement, then and additional advisor approved elective is required.

*CEE 475 & 6075 are offered alternate years. No technical prerequisites; can be taken early.

**Offered in the fall only; times conflict with Engineering Management

***Useful to have these design courses prior to internships
