 Students are encouraged to take GEOE 203.


Students can take MATH 321 or CHE 315 or ECON 210 as a statistics course. If students take MATH 321 as their statistics elective and MATH 421 as their technical elective, they will earn a minor in Math, without adding extra courses to their degree plan. 


UND Civil Engineering Degree Program requires courses as well as ENGL 110 and ENGL 130 to be completed with at least a “C” grade in each of the courses. 


Students must ensure all appropriate pre-requisites are met prior to registering for all courses in the curriculum. 

Either ENGR 200 OR ENGR 202 must be completed with a "C" or higher. 

Labs must be completed on campus, through CE 102 or from a pre-approved transfer institution. For more information on labs, please visit here

Students have the opportunity to take CE 102 where they can petition to waive a program specific requirement, not university or essential studies requirements, for the following courses: CE 101CE 103 CE 313CE 313LCE 397(up to 3 crs), CE 411 CE 412LCE 423LCE 431LCE 444ENGR 200ENGR 340

All engineering, science, and math transfer courses must earn a grade of "C" or higher to be applied to the program. 

Students must complete a minimum of 21 credit hours of 300-level or higher coursework in Civil Engineering at UND, including CE 482 and CE 483.
