Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering Requirements

Graduation Requirements

During a civil engineering student's first semester at The University of Texas at Tyler, a civil engineering faculty member is assigned as the student's academic advisor to work with the student in planning a program of study to complete degree requirements. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor throughout the semester and are required to meet with their advisor prior to registering for the next semester or summer session.

To graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering degree, a student must

  1. complete the general baccalaureate degree requirements for the university;
  2. complete the Civil Engineering curriculum requirements as shown below; with an average of 2.5 GPA on all courses taken in the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and
  3. achieve a satisfactory score on the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination. The NCEES FE exam is offered twice each year in April and October. A senior may take the FE exam within one year of completing the BSCE curriculum. The FE exam may be taken more than once, and seniors will be encouraged to take the exam at the earliest opportunity.
