(120 UNITS)

Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering


The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. The degree includes 80 units in the major, 24 General Education units, 13 units of technical electives, 3 units of basic science elective and all university requirements. When selecting courses, students need to consult with a faculty adviser. Students are required to meet with their academic adviser every semester during the first year and at least once a year thereafter.

All required courses toward the degree must be taken for a letter grade. All required mathematics and science courses must be passed with a “C-” (1.7) or better. Graduate courses are not open to undergraduate students without department approval. A GPA of 2.0 or better is required for the major. Course prerequisites are strictly enforced. Coursework taken at another college or university in which “C-” (1.7) or lower grade was earned will not be substituted for the major courses.

Students are required to obtain department preapproval before registering for courses at another college or university. No more than a total of 12 units can be transferred to replace 300- or 400-level major courses.

General Education Courses


All students at Cal State Fullerton are expected to complete prescribed units of General Education that are made up of courses outside of their chosen disciplines. Students seeking a degree in Engineering have been provided exceptions from some of the General Education requirements. For this reason, it is important that students take the approved G.E. courses for Engineering majors that are found in their Titan Degree Audit (TDA). Additionally, they should confirm the G.E. courses that are required within their specific programs with their respective advisers.
