Recommended Schedule

View the recommended schedule on the course catalog.

Please note that requirements and course offerings may change, and you should consult your advisor to ensure your course schedule meets your individual needs.

In addition to University core curriculum requirements, the bachelor's degree program in civil engineering requires coursework in four areas:

  1. Math and physical sciences
  2. Engineering sciences
  3. Engineering design
  4. Technical electives

Your technical electives will depend on your area of emphasis. All students must complete at least two elective courses that cover design, one of which must be either CEE 480, Structural Concrete Design, and/or CEE 481, Structural Steel Design. 

Students are also required to take two capstone classes in the senior year. Capstone classes are a chance for you to synthesize the knowledge you've gained during your degree program and apply it to the engineering design process.

Students must also take the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination administered by the Nevada Board of Professional Engineers. This exam is generally taken during the spring of your senior year. Register for ENGR 490 in order to have the exam recorded on your transcript.
