University of Delaware - College of Engineering
CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING
Bachelor of Civil Engineering Curriculum

The following charts illustrate a typical four-year curriculum for a civil engineering major at the University of Delaware. BCE students may choose one of five concentrations: structural engineering, soil mechanics and foundations, environmental and water resources engineering, transportation, and hydraulics and ocean engineering. Technical electives are then chosen in consultation with a faculty adviser in order to meet concentration requirements and to pursue individual interests. Students are encouraged to meet with their faculty advisers regularly to discuss their progress and work out any curriculum problems or concerns.
