Grade Requirements

A program of study consisting of one hundred twenty-eight semester hours is required for the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in civil engineering. A candidate for the Bachelor's degree is required to earn a "C" or higher in all engineering courses, and must achieve a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) in all of the civil engineering major courses (with prefix CGN, CES, ENG, CWR, EES, ENV, TTE, CCE). In addition, students must achieve a grade of "C–" or higher in all courses transferred into the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Students should contact the Department for the most up-to-date information concerning the civil engineering curriculum requirements.

There are two majors within the civil engineering Bachelor's degree program, they are Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering. Most of the curriculum is common to both majors, and includes topics in liberal studies, mathematics, basic science, general engineering science, and civil engineering science and design. History/social science and humanities/fine arts electives are to be selected to satisfy the FSU liberal studies requirement or the FAMU general education requirement.

Students in all three majors should successfully complete the following courses in addition to the liberal/general studies, other University, and College of Engineering requirements:
