Civil Engineering Program

Engineering is the application of math and physics in order to solve real-world problems. The Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering (BSCE) degree at Angelo State University is a broad degree where you will gain expertise in five sub-areas of civil engineering including: environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, transportation engineering, and water resources engineering.

Students with an interest in earning a BSCE degree must meet ASU’s admission standards as outlined in the University Catalog.

Our degree plan begins with Calculus I. Students must meet the following prerequisites to enroll in Calculus I:

  • Have all the prerequisite college credits with a C or better in College Algebra & Precalculus through dual credit;
  • Place into Calculus I through our campus math placement exam; OR
  • Earn credit for Calculus I through the AP Calculus AB exam with a score of 3 or higher.

Incoming freshman enrolled in MATH 2312 Precalculus (or higher) begin the program as Engineering Fundamentals students and must satisfy all of the Engineering Fundamentals requirements. Students remain Engineering Fundamentals majors until they successfully complete the Civil Engineering Advancement Exam, maintain an overall GPA of 2.50, and complete the following courses:

  • ENGR 1201 Introduction to Engineering
  • ENGR 1304 Engineering Graphics
  • ENGR 1307 Plane Surveying
  • ENGR 2301 Engineering Statics*
  • ENGR 2302 Engineering Dynamics*
  • MATH 2313 Calculus I*
  • MATH 2314 Calculus II*
  • PHYS 2325 Fundamentals of Physics I*
  • PHYS 2326 Fundamentals of Physics II*

Courses noted with an asterisk must be completed with a grade of C or better. Students are eligible to sit for the Civil Engineering Advancement Exam after they earn a minimum of 2.50 GPA in the above courses. Schedule an appointment with the Engineering Academic Advisor and Department Chair to confirm your eligibility to sit for the next scheduled Civil Engineering Exam.

After satisfying all the criteria listed above, students become Civil Engineering majors and must complete all remaining requirements to earn a BSCE degree as outlined in the University Catalog.
