While Calculus I (MATH 1441) is 4 credit hours, only 3 credit hours will count toward fulfilling Area A2. The remaining credit hour will be applied toward Specific Requirements.
The 6 credit hours listed for technical electives must be upper division courses in order to meet the 39 upper division hours requirement.
Other Program Requirements
- A minimum grade of "C" is required for all CENG courses.
- A minimum grade of "C" is required for all prerequisite courses.
- A minimum grade of "C" is required for all Technical Elective courses.
- At least 33 credit hours of approved upper division Engineering credit hours must be earned at Georgia Southern.
- At least 100 hours of Departmental pre-approved community service must be completed prior to graduation clearance.
- Students must take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam prior to Graduation.
Honors in Civil Engineering
To graduate with Honors in Civil Engineering a student must:
- Be admitted in the University Honors Program
- Complete a Honors thesis (in a minimum of two regular semesters) for a total of 3-credit hours in Honors Research (HONS 4999)
- Maintain a 3.3 institution grade point average, including a 3.5 minimum GPA in all major courses applied towards graduation
Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Degree (ABM) Degree Requirements: 30 Hours
In accordance with SACSCOC requirements, students admitted to the MSCE-ABM may use up to 9 credit hours of graduate-level courses offered in the MSCE curriculum in meeting the requirements of both the BSCE and MSCE degree programs. SACSCOC requires 150 unique credit hours between the two programs. Because the MSCE-ABM program contains the required 150 unique hours between BSCE and MSCE degree programs, MSCE-ABM students may share a maximum of 9 credit hours of graduate level courses (5000G) in satisfying the requirements of both degree programs.
For regular admission to the Accelerated Bachelor’s to the Master of Science in Civil Engineering (ABM-MSCE) degree program the student must:
Be enrolled as a current Georgia Southern undergraduate student majoring in Civil Engineering (CE).
Have a 3.0 (4.0 scale) cumulative grade point average or higher on courses in undergraduate work.
ABM programs do not allow provisional admission. ABM programs are designed for students who have demonstrated a high level of undergraduate academic performance that validates their ability to be successful graduate students. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements for regular admission may be granted admission to the program upon approval of an admissions committee consisting of at least the Department Chair and the Graduate Program director.
ABM Degree Requirements: 30 Credit Hours Non-Thesis
- A student in the ABM program will be allowed to use up to 9 credits CENG 5000G level courses offered within the Civil Engineering program in meeting the requirements of both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree.
- Maintain a cumulative graduate GPA of 3.0 (grade of “B” or better) in their graduate degree course work (including the 9 credits of graduate course work shared with the undergraduate degree).
- Meet all requirements for both the BSCE and MSCE degrees.
- An undergraduate student enrolled in graduate classes is limited to 6 credit hours of graduate coursework per semester.
- A minimum of 50% of courses for the Master of Science in Civil Engineering degree must be taken at or above the 6000 level.
