Honors students who are majoring in Civil and Environmental Engineering are required to take a minimum of 8 credit hours of upper division (300, 400, and 500 level) honors courses in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. General guidelines for these credit hours are given below. However, the specific courses that each student takes will be agreed upon by the student, the student’s department undergraduate advisor, and the student’s honors advisor. The honor student’s department undergraduate advisor is responsible for finding an honors advisor for the student who is mutually agreeable to the undergraduate advisor, the honors advisor, and the honors student.
