Submitted by the Academic Programs Committee

College of Computing, Engineering and Construction (Graduate) – (School of Engineering/Civil Engineering):

Courses Changes, & Programs of Study (1 package)

12/06/18: Passed

12/11/18: Approved

Log Number: 201808-49

School of Engineering/Civil Engineering - Graduate


 Change a degree-major of an existing program

Master of Science in Civil Engineering - Civil Engineering Major

 

Summary of the changes:

Currently, all Transportation Engineering graduate courses include TTE4004 Transportation Engineering as a pre-requisite for the course. TTE4004 Transportation Engineering is a required course for Civil Engineering undergraduate students. Therefore, every student who graduates in the BS Civil Engineering must have passed this course. This APC package is a request to remove this prerequisite because it is redundant. Also, this will eliminate the need for out-of-state students who might have a similar course with a different code to require an adviser permission/override to enroll in any Transportation Engineering graduate course. The number of credit hours for the MS program remains the same.
