## Civil Engineering

Civil engineering historically encompassed all engineering endeavors needed to provide the infrastructure for society to function. Because of its origin and history, civil engineering still embraces a wide variety of technological areas. These include:

- Construction
- Environmental and Water Resources
- Geotechnical
- Structures
- Transportation

Civil engineers work with problems that directly impact the health and economic vitality of people and communities. These problems include waste disposal, environmental pollution, transportation systems analysis and design, water resource development, and the design, construction, and rehabilitation of constructed facilities such as dams, bridges, buildings, and highways.

Thus, the challenges and opportunities for a civil engineer lie in combining technical competence with a human concern for the applications of technology. To help students to understand their role in the community, to be effective in working with design teams involving other engineers and other professionals, and to be effective in written and spoken communications, the curriculum attempts to give a meaningful educational experience in the humanities, social studies, English, and economics.

The goal of the undergraduate curriculum in civil engineering is to prepare graduate civil engineers to meet the present and the future infrastructural and environmental needs of society. This requires an education based on scientific and engineering fundamentals as well as one that incorporates experience in engineering design using modern technology. Because the systems they design impact the public directly, civil engineers must be aware of the social and environmental consequences of their designs. Graduates must be prepared to work and communicate with other professionals in a variety of associations and organizations. Ethics and life-long learning are essential components in the education of civil engineers.

During the course of study, civil engineering students are given a solid grounding in mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Added to this is extensive development of the fundamentals of materials science, construction, water and environmental, soils, structural, and transportation systems engineering. This broad base of knowledge is provided to assure that civil engineers are educated in all branches of the profession and to permit continuous learning throughout a professional lifetime. Throughout the program, each student works with an academic advisor in the selection of electives. Specialization in one or more of the branches of civil engineering is possible by selection of a sequence of technical electives during the junior and senior years.

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering (B.S.C.E.) is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

## Program Educational Objectives

- The graduates will be successful in their professional careers as civil engineers in industry, public agencies, and/or post-graduate education.
- The graduates will continue to develop professionally and serve in leadership roles.
- The graduates will be successful in demonstrating their obligations to the profession, to their employer, and to society.

## Student Outcomes

Upon graduation, all Bachelor of Science students in Civil Engineering will have:

- An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
- An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
- An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
- An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
- An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
- An ability to communicate effectively.
- The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
- A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
- A knowledge of contemporary issues.
- An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

## Curriculum for a Dual Degree in Mining Engineering and Civil Engineering

This curriculum allows students to simultaneously pursue B.S. degrees in mining engineering and civil engineering by completing additional courses. A suggested schedule for the dual curriculum in mining engineering and civil engineering is shown below.

To receive the degrees of bachelor of science in mining engineering and bachelor of science in civil engineering, a student must take all of the courses indicated below and achieve a grade point average of 2.25 or better for all civil engineering courses attempted and a grade point average of 2.25 in all mining engineering courses attempted, except for those courses in which a grade of W was received. If a course is repeated, only the last grade received is counted in computing the grade point average, and the course credit hours are counted only once. This requirement assures that the student has demonstrated overall competence in the chosen major.

## Undergraduate Student Minimum Performance Policy

All civil engineering students at WVU, including transfer students, second-degree students, and dual degree students must complete each tracking course with a grade of C or better, with the exception that one D among them is permitted (a transfer course(s) with a grade of D does not satisfy the minimum performance requirement). When a course is repeated, the last grade earned in that course will be used for determining compliance with this minimum performance policy. Only the following Civil Engineering courses may be taken prior to completion of the minimum performance policy: CE 201, CE 210, CE 305, CE 332, and CE 347.

Any tracking course transferred from outside of WVU must be a C or better.

All tracking courses must be completed collectively before taking any 300-level or higher civil engineering course. However, as an exception to the collective prerequisite requirement, geomatics (CE 305), environmental engineering (CE 347), and transportation engineering (CE 332) may be taken before completing all tracking courses.

Second-degree students may petition for a waiver to the collective prerequisite requirement for 300-level or higher civil engineering courses but must meet individual course prerequisites. The petition must include a plan for completing the tracking courses and be approved by the student’s academic advisor and the department chairman.

It is important for the students take courses in the order specified as much as possible; all prerequisites and concurrent requirements must be observed. A typical dual B.S.Min.E and B.S.C.E. degree program that completes degree requirements in five years is as follows.

**Mining/Civil Engineering Curriculum Requirements**

Students must complete a minimum of 152 credit hours to graduate - the total at the bottom reflects all possible course combinations. | ||
