Notes


  1. EGG 307, Engineering Economics, is approved by the University General Education Committee to meet three credits of the social science requirement.
  2. UNLV requires six credits of humanities, three credits of fine arts and nine credits of social science. Six of these 18 credits must be taken before the student can achieve Advanced Standing status. EGG 307 must be taken after achieving Advanced Standing. The remaining nine credits may be taken either as pre-program or advanced standing.
  3. The Constitutions requirement should be satisfied with a four-credit option such as HIST 100 or PSC 101.
  4. Every student must complete a three-credit multicultural course and a three-credit international course. Courses satisfying other requirements may simultaneously satisfy the multicultural and international requirements. The Academic Policies section of this catalog under General Education Core Requirements, Item-9 Multicultural Requirement and Item 10 - International Requirement, lists courses meeting the Multicultural and International requirements.
  5. CEE 491 may not replace a required course in the curriculum, may not count for more than three elective credits toward the degree, and may not be used for work experience.
  6. Civil engineering elective courses are required in at least two technical areas with a minimum of two courses in one area. CEE 444 should be taken as one of the technical electives if a student elects the structural technical area.
  7. Three credits of Cooperative Training (CEE 225, CEE 325, and CEE 425 may be used in place of one three-credit civil engineering elective. No more than one of these credits may be CEE 225.
  8. To earn required credits for graduation, transfer students lacking laboratory credit for any CEE laboratory course (CEE 334, 346, 367 or 450), must, for each lab course in which they lack credit, register simultaneously for both the corresponding zero-credit laboratory course (CEE 334L, CEE 346L, CEE 367L, CEE 450L) and for a one-credit CEE 491 independent study course.
