Students in the Construction Engineering major are expected to make consistent good progress toward their degrees to remain enrolled in, or eligible for, any major in the College of Engineering & Computer Science (CECS) or the College of Optics and Photonics (COP).

Advising Notes

  • Each engineering student is assigned a qualified engineering academic advisor in the department of his/her major. Each student should seek academic advisement before registering for classes each semester to minimize excess hours and to ensure that satisfactory academic progress is being maintained.
  • The Construction Engineering program offers the opportunity for exceptionally well qualified undergraduates to enter directly into the PhD program after completion of an appropriate BS degree. This option allows outstanding undergraduates to begin planning a research program with a specific faculty advisor even before finishing the BS, and may allow completion of the PhD in a shorter time period than by taking a separate Master's followed by the PhD.
  • This Construction Engineering program has potential ties to professional licensure or certification in the field.
