Civil Engineering

The Osprey Map provides a term-by-term sample schedule for each undergraduate academic program at the University of North Florida. It is designed to guide students in the selection of courses each term. The "Mile Marker" courses are those courses that should be completed before or by the end of that term. Following the sample schedule, and completing the mile marker courses at the appropriate point of your undergraduate career, will facilitate graduation in four years. The term-by-term model assumes full-time enrollment. For students enrolled part-time, the sample schedule and mile markers should be followed based on the number of credits completed. The Osprey Map should be used in consultation with an academic advisor.

Civil Engineers design the built environment - the structures, roads, water supply systems and much more - that surround us. The profession is broad and encompasses several technical areas including structures, transportation, geotechnics, water resources and environmental protection. Employment opportunities are plentiful in design, construction, management, teaching, and research. Employers include consulting firms, industrial companies, and government agencies and non-governmental organizations.

Career Planning
Engaging in career planning activities is significant to student success. UNF offers customized career centers to deliver targeted programs, events, services and resources. First-Year and Exploratory students should visit the Career Services webpage and Sophomore or higher level students with a declared CCEC major should visit the CCEC Career Development Center. The Center provides information on companies seeking civil engineering graduates for permanent positions or current students for employment in cooperative education positions.

Students should refer to their personalized Degree Evaluation provided by an academic advisor and to other university resources for additional university and college-specific policies. Visit the undergraduate university catalog for more information.

Summer terms may be utilized to facilitate graduation in four years.

  • Visit the university catalog for a list of General Education requirements. An Associate in Arts (AA) degree from a Florida public university, state college or community college satisfies UNF general education and Gordon Rule requirements. Math selection is contingent upon appropriate placement score, the student's major and credit received through accelerated mechanisms (Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Dual Enrollment, etc).
  • Visit the Civil Engineering Program webpage for a complete list of Civil Engineering prerequisites.
  • Students requiring preparation for MAC 2311 Calculus I take MAC 1147 Precalculus. Prerequisite for CHM 2045/2045L General Chemistry I with lab is completion of CHM 1025 Introduction to Chemistry or qualifying score on chemistry placement assessment. MAC 2311 is a prerequisite for PHY 2048C. Beginning the mathematics and science sequences immediately is crucial to stay on-track for graduation. Find specific admission criteria for this program on your Degree Evaluation, college website, university catalog or consult your academic advisor. For more information visit the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction Advising Office webpage.
  • The School of Engineering enforces a One Repeat Rule for all prerequisite courses and all core engineering courses. Students who do not successfully complete a prerequisite or core requirement for a School of Engineering course on the first attempt (i.e., earn a grade of D, F, or W) must repeat the course. The course must be passed with a C or better on the second attempt or the student will be suspended from the engineering program and not allowed to continue in that engineering program. The only exceptions to this policy are withdrawals for medical, military and fully refunded withdrawals (i.e., WM, WS and WR, respectively).
  • All Engineering courses are typically offered once a year and should be completed in the Term indicated on the Osprey Map. For additional information consult an academic advisor. Civil Engineering Technical Electives are offered frequently.
  • Civic Literacy Requirement: Prior to graduation from a Florida state university, students must demonstrate competency in civic literacy through successful completion of a civic literacy course (AMH 2020 or POS 2041) and by achieving a passing score on an assessment. Consult an academic advisor, the university catalog and visit the Civic Literacy webpage for additional information.
  • A minimum of 120 hours (48 hours at the upper 3000/4000 level) is required for the bachelor's degree.
