Minor in Civil Engineering
The purpose of the minor in Civil Engineering is to give students with sufficient background in mathematics, physics and chemistry, a fundamental understanding of the field of Civil Engineering. The minor should be of special interest to students in Geosciences (foundations and earthquake), Environmental Studies, Physics, Math, Computer Science, and other engineering fields. Students interested in the Civil Engineering minor must meet with the Program Head of Civil Engineering and complete the Civil Engineering Minor Program Approval Form [PDF 24 KB]. Revision of the form requires the approval of the Program Head.
The minor is intended for students who have satisfied the following prerequisite requirements:
|Math 226||Calculus I (4)|
|Math 227||Calculus II (4)|
|Phys220/222||General Physics with Calculus I & Lab (4)|
|Phys240/242||General Physics with Calculus III & Lab (4)|
|Chem 115||General Chemistry I: Essential Concepts of Chemistry (5)|
The minor may be satisfied by a minimum of 21 units (not including prerequisite units) distributed as follows:
|Total (not including prerequisites units)||21 units|
To earn a minor in Civil Engineering, a student must complete at least 12 of the required 21 core and elective units at SFSU. All courses in the minor must be taken with letter grades (CR/NC is not acceptable).
