1. Departmental courses may be used for technical electives, but technical courses outside the department may not be used as departmental electives. The department publishes annually a list of acceptable technical electives. The following technical courses are strongly recommended:

14:332:373 Elements of Electrical Engineering

14:650:351 Thermodynamics

2. At least one of the following capstone design courses is required:

14:180:407 Construction Projects

14:180:426 Structural Design

14:180:431 Design of Environmental Engineering Facilities

14:180:438 Transportation Engineering II

14:180:474 Geotechnical Engineering Design

3. With a combination of the required and elective departmental courses and the available general and technical electives, a student may pursue a general program or a program having an area of concentration in structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, transportation engineering, and water resources/environmental engineering.
