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.

Civil Engineering Completion Curriculum

Students who have earned the Texas Associate of Science in Engineering Science degree from an ASAC/ABET accredited program at a participating community college, with an overall GPA of at least 2.50/4.00 and with no grade lower than "C," are eligible to pursue the Civil Engineering Completion Program to earn a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. If you are eligible, this program will likely enable you to complete the degree in the shortest time. Before beginning study, however, you should discuss your eligibility with an engineering advisor.
