B.S. Applied Civil Engineering

 

The students should know that the department has adopted a new curriculum for its CE and ACE programs which is effective from the first semester of the academic year 2009-10. However, for the smooth transition to the new program and to allow students already enrolled in the current program to graduate with no disruption, the department will continue to offer both current and the new programs for a certain period of time.

FLOW CHART



 

Electives

 

Students enrolling in the new programs, must declare their selected concentration by selecting one of the following options:

 

Option I: Structures, materials and construction,

Option II: Transportation and geotechnical engineering

Option III: Water resources and environmental engineering.

 

The new ACE program has four different categories of electives, namely:

i) science elective (Table 2)

ii) general studies elective (Table 3)

iii) CE electives (Table 4-A)

iv) option electives (Table 4-B).

 

Of the two CE electives, I and II (Table 4-A), all CE and ACE students must select one course marked with (*) from Option I and Option III as listed in Table 4-B. The asterisk-marked courses have substantial design content and they provide the basic design knowledge in each of the two options. The remaining two CE electives, referred to as ‘option electives’, must be taken from the option selected by the student as his preferred area of concentration in civil engineering in which he would undertake his Senior Design Project.
