August 2012
Introduction
The purpose of this guide is to assist undergraduate students majoring in Civil Engineering (CVEN) to
fulfill the CVEN curriculum requirements for the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree. These requirements
are structured to comply with College rules and to maintain our accreditation, in compliance with the
rules of the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET (www.abet.org).
To respond to the rapid changes in technology and needs of the profession, our curriculum is dynamic,
and consequently undergoes both major and minor revisions annually. As an undergraduate student,
you will generally be expected to follow the curriculum in effect when you entered as a freshman. You
should keep a copy of the university catalog and all written information including the version of the
Advising Guide that was in effect when you entered the Civil Engineering program. Copies of the
curriculum, a course checklist, and a graphical flow chart are contained in this document. Alternatively,
you may elect to follow a future revision to the curriculum in its entirety. If you decide to follow new
curriculum guidelines, you must inform the Department.
The student is responsible for adherence to the CVEN curriculum rules and requirements and should be
aware that deviation from the planned sequence of courses may result in delayed graduation.
Because of the diversity of the activities of civil engineers, the basic Civil Engineering Curriculum is
intended to provide for a fundamental foundation of engineering science, a proficiency in four of the
following five areas: construction, environmental, geotechnical, structural, and water resources
engineering; and advanced courses in one of these areas leading to a concentration; culminating in an
integrating multidisciplinary civil engineering major design experience. For talented students who seek
the next-level preparation for R&D (Research and Development) careers or advanced degrees, they
should consider the Engineering Science (ES) Track in Civil Engineering. In a special partnership with the
Department of Applied Mathematics (APPM), a streamlined dual-degree program in Civil Engineering
and Applied Mathematics via the Engineering Science track is now available. Catering to those who are
interested in issues pertinent to the developing world, students can also elect the Engineering for
Developing Communities (EDC) Track which focuses on sustainability and globally responsible
engineering in developing communities and countries.
Mission Statement
The mission of the Department of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering is the education of
undergraduate students to become leaders in the professional practice of engineering, contributing to
technological advances that benefit humankind while enhancing the earth's physical and biological
resources.

Accreditation and Assessment
The CVEN curriculum is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Accreditation
involves a process of continuous improvement using a series of assessment tools that measure how well
the program is achieving its stated outcomes and objectives. As a student, you can expect to take part in
the following evaluations during (and after) your academic career at CU:
•
Faculty Course Questionnaire (FCQ) – You will evaluate and provide feedback in every course
you take at CU at the end of every semester.
•
Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam – This national exam is the first step toward
professional registration as an engineer and all CVEN students are required to take the exam
prior to graduation. Most students take it in their last semester at CU.
•
Senior Exit Survey – In your last semester, you will be asked to fill out a survey administered by
the College that asks how well the outcomes listed above were met, and your overall
satisfaction with the program, department, faculty, etc.
•
Alumni Survey – We will send you a survey five years after graduation to evaluate if we met the
program educational objectives.

Employment Opportunities for Civil Engineering Graduates
Civil engineers design and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams,
bridges, and water supply and sewage systems. Civil engineering encompasses many specialties. The
major specialties within civil engineering are structural, water resources, environmental, construction,
transportation, and geotechnical engineering.
Many civil engineers hold supervisory or administrative positions, from supervisor of a construction site
to city engineer. Others may work in design, construction, research, and teaching. More than 4 in 10
were employed by firms providing architectural, engineering, and related services, primarily developing
designs for new construction projects. Almost one-third of the jobs are in federal, state, and local
government agencies. The construction industry accounted for most of the remaining employment.
About 15,000 civil engineers were self-employed, many as consultants.
Civil engineers usually work near major industrial and commercial centers, often at construction sites.
Some projects are situated in remote areas or in foreign countries. In some jobs, civil engineers move
from place to place to work on different projects.
With advanced degrees, civil engineers can pursue careers in academics, engineering consulting,
research laboratories, and technology development in a wide range of engineering disciplines.
Advising
A) The faculty and staff are here because they have a true commitment to education and want to see
students succeed. However, you the student are ultimately responsible for ensuring that all
graduation requirements have been satisfied, and for seeking out the advice and help you need. To
assist in this, each student is assigned a faculty advisor. You are free to change advisors to better
serve your needs, with the approval of the new advisor (see CEAE department for advisor form).
After selecting an area of specialty, a new advisor from that area will typically be assigned. The
department’s undergraduate coordinator can also assist you with many questions about the
curriculum.
B) It is the individual student’s responsibility to secure the approval of her/his faculty advisor for the
course of study for each semester. This activity occurs during the group/individual advising period,
of which notification will be sent in advance by email in each semester. After the advising session,
the faculty advisor will sign the pink card in your file that will authorize the CEAE staff to remove the
registration HOLD that prevents you from registering. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO REGISTER BEFORE THIS
HOLD IS REMOVED.
C) There are a number of decisions to be made concerning choice of elective courses. These decisions
should be made in close consultation with the academic advisor so that the electives contribute to
overall educational objectives and become part of a cohesive, rational program. The development
of such an academic program is the principal purpose for meeting with the academic advisor. A
second, and equally important, purpose is for the student to be able to identify a friendly,
experienced, and knowledgeable person with whom s/he can discuss her/his academic progress and
solve any difficulties that may possibly arise.
D) Block diagrams and graduation planners for each program are included in this guide. Each student is
responsible for keeping his or her graduation planner up-to-date.
E) Not all courses are offered every semester. Those that are only offered once per year are marked
on the block diagrams.
CVEN Advising Guide

August 2012
F) The minimum course load for full time enrollment is 12 credit hours. The maximum course load is
19 credit hours. Variation must be requested by petition to the college. After 18 credit hours, a
tuition surcharge is applied.
G) If problems arise, the following steps are suggested:
i. See CEAE Undergraduate Coordinator.
ii. See the Chair of the Operations Committee (Milan Halek).
iii. Contact the Office of the Dean of the College (ECAD 100) for questions concerning College or
University rules or policies.
For more information on the civil, environmental and architectural engineering program, visit our
website at http://ceae.colorado.edu.
Transfer Procedures
The University and College have established procedures for admission of transfer students and
evaluation of transfer credits. These policies are described on the undergraduate admissions website:
http://admissions.colorado.edu/undergraduate/apply/transfer. However, once a student is admitted
and transfer credits have been evaluated by the University, the CEAE Department is responsible for the
final evaluation of the application of transfer credits to degree requirements. A student is required to
obtain the approval of the CEAE Transfer Credit Evaluator for all transfer credits. Prof. Dobroslav
Znidarcic ([email protected]) is the current (Fall 2012) CEAE Transfer Credit Evaluator.
The following recommendations are offered:
A) It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that transfer credits have been evaluated and approved by
the Department.
B) Newly admitted transfer students should make an appointment with the CEAE Transfer Credit
Evaluator as soon as possible to obtain final approval of transfer credits. A transfer credit approval
form, signed by the Transfer Credit Evaluator, will be placed in the student’s file and will be required
for graduation. The form will also be used by advisors to inform academic guidance.
C) If there are questions or concerns about a transfer course, the Evaluator may request catalog pages
or course descriptions, or may seek the advice of other faculty members. In some cases, it may be
recommended that the student prepare a petition for transfer credit, with multiple levels of
approval, to ensure that there will be no future questions. While the petition process may seem
onerous, it is only used to protect the student’s interest.
D) Transfer credit issues can also arise for current students who take one or more courses at other
institutions during their academic career, e.g., study abroad programs or summer school at a local
college. Current students who are planning to take courses at another institution should seek
preliminary approval of the transfer credits before taking the courses.
Additional Advising Resources
There are many advising resources available at CU-Boulder, but students frequently do not know they
exist or hesitate to take advantage of them:
College of Engineering Advising Guides
The College publishes a comprehensive set of advising guides to provide students with timely and
accurate information. These guides are not intended as a substitute for personal interaction between
student and advisor, but can be a great way to get answers to many common questions and concerns.

Graduation Requirements
Failure to complete the requirements listed below will postpone graduation. Any exceptions will require
authorization from the CEAE Operations Committee and the Dean’s Office. Students should meet with
the CEAE Undergraduate Coordinator at least one semester prior to their planned graduation to review
their records. It is the student’s responsibility to be certain that all degree requirements have been met,
to fill out the on-line diploma card, and to keep the CEAE Undergraduate Coordinator and the Dean’s
Office informed of any change in graduation plans.
To be eligible for the CVEN BS degree, students must meet the following minimum requirements:
1. The satisfactory completion of the prescribed and elective work in the CVEN BS curriculum. A
student must complete a minimum number of 128 semester hours, of which the last 45 shall be
earned after admission to the College of Engineering and Applied Science as a degree student.
2. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.25 for all courses attempted and for all courses that
count toward graduation requirements, excluding P grades for courses taken Pass/Fail. (Pass/Fail
courses do not count for graduation credit.)
3. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.25 for all CEAE course work. This “major” grade
point average is computed separately from the student’s cumulative grade point average and
includes only course work from CVEN and AREN.
4. Successful completion of all Minimum Academic Preparation Standards (MAPS) requirements of the
College.
5. Successful completion of WRTG 3030, Writing on Science and Society or an approved alternate
writing course (WRTG 3035, GEEN 3000, or HUEN 3100). Any other exceptions to the WRTG 3030
requirement must be approved via petition by the Dean of Engineering.
6. Take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Examination, fall or spring of the student’s senior year
(including both the morning general and the afternoon civil, environmental, or other disciplines
subject section), is required. Graduation is not contingent upon passing. However, it is beneficial
for your career to do so because this exam is the first step toward professional registration.
7. Submission of a completed Application for Diploma Form, on-line.
8. Obtain the recommendation of the CEAE faculty.
9. Obtain the recommendation of the faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Note: Double degree students must obtain approval of both designated departments and colleges. The
University normally requires that a minimum of an additional 30 semester credit hours be earned for the
second degree outside of engineering or 15 credits for a second degree within engineering. However,
BOTH degree requirements must be completed. Minor students must provide Engineering Dean’s Office
with a Minor Completion form to verify minor requirements have been completed.
BECAUSE THE BURDEN OF PROOF IS ON THE STUDENT, CONSULT THE ASSOCIATE CHAIR FOR
UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS, YOUR FACULTY ADVISOR, OR THE UNDERGRADUATE COORDINATOR,
AND PETITION FOR APPROVAL OF ANY PROGRAM DEVIATIONS.
CVEN Technical Elective Requirements
A technical elective is generally a course in engineering or science with technical content, selected in
consultation with a faculty advisor at the upper (3000+) level. Courses listed as Concentrations in this
guide are examples of technical electives. Consult the departmental website for a complete list of
eligible courses in different areas in the CVEN program.
CVEN Advising Guide
6
August 2012
Up to 3 credit hours of Independent Study, Undergraduate Research, or the following ROTC courses are
acceptable as technical elective credit: AIRR 3010 or NAVR 4010.
A maximum of 6 credit hours of technical electives other than CVEN or AREN courses may be selected
with the consent of the student’s faculty advisor.
Engineering Science Track
For those students who have advanced placement credits, seek additional career opportunities in
research and development (R&D) in engineering and technology or better preparation for advanced
degrees in engineering, they should consider the Engineering Science Track which aims to provide a
higher-level preparation in analytical and computer modeling essential in modern engineering and
technology. Interested students should contact Prof. Ronald Pak, ES Track Advisor: [email protected] or
visit the department website.
Double Degrees in Civil Engineering and Applied Mathematics
For students who are interested in civil engineering science, applied mathematics, and their close
relationship, a special dual BS degree program is now available by which one can earn a baccalaureate
degree in both civil engineering and applied mathematics with a minimum of only 143 credits instead of
158. Contact the dual CE-APPM degree program advisor, Professor Ronald Pak ([email protected]), in
civil engineering or Professor Anne Dougherty ([email protected]) in Applied Mathematics
for more details and consultation.
Additional Educational Opportunities
Engineering For Developing Communities Track
The Engineering for Developing Communities (EDC) track educates globally-responsible engineering
students and professionals who can offer sustainable and appropriate solutions to the endemic
problems faced by developing communities worldwide. Interested students should contact Robyn
Sandekian, EDC Track coordinator, ([email protected]) or Prof. Bernard Amadei
([email protected]) or visit the department website.
Independent Study and Undergraduate Research
Undergraduates can participate in ongoing research through independent study projects, the
Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), and as research assistants for sponsored
projects. These opportunities promote individual contact with faculty and graduate students, and they
provide an educational experience that cannot be obtained in the normal classroom setting.
Up to three (3) semester credit hours of Independent Study is acceptable for Technical Electives.
An Independent Study is normally supervised by a CEAE faculty member. An approved Independent
Study supervised by a faculty member outside of CEAE may also be applied to curriculum requirements
as an out-of-department technical elective.
To pursue an independent study, an Independent Study Agreement Form must be completed and signed
by both the student and the sponsor of the Independent Study or Undergraduate Research (which
includes a written Statement of Work). These forms are available through the College of Engineering
CVEN Advising Guide
7
August 2012
Advising Guide http://engineering.colorado.edu/students/advising.htm or the CEAE Undergraduate
Coordinator.
Concurrent BS/MS Program
Civil Engineering students who plan to continue their education to obtain a graduate degree after
completing the requirements for their BS in Civil Engineering will usually find it advantageous to apply
for admission to the concurrent BS/MS degree program. This program allows students who qualify (a
3.25 cumulative GPA is required) to plan a graduate program from the beginning of their junior year
rather than from their first year of graduate study. Up to six credit hours of appropriate 5000 level
technical elective courses may be applied to the MS degree, subject to GPA restriction. Interested
students should discuss this option with their faculty advisor and obtain additional information from the
Undergraduate Coordinator or Graduate Coordinator.
The tuition rate for students in this program will be at the undergraduate rate unless the student
converts to graduate status after completing the BS requirements.
Undergraduate Research Experience
The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering of the University of Colorado
Boulder is a major research center in the U.S. Most of the CEAE faculty members are active researchers
in their field, leading interesting and challenging research projects supported by the government and
industry. Students are encouraged to take advantage of such an inquisitive setting to enhance their
educational experience by exploring early their ability in guided or independent research.
Undergraduate research assistantships are available during the academic year and the summer
semester from individual faculty, the College of Engineering, as well as campus’s UROP program. Those
who are in the Engineering Science Track are particularly encouraged to participate in such
undergraduate research activities.
Discovery Learning Apprenticeships
As a way to encourage undergraduate students to experience research, the College invites applications
annually for a number of a Discovery Learning Apprenticeships. Students can earn an hourly wage while
engaging in research with college faculty and graduate students. Positions are announced in April for
the following fall term and spring term. Students must apply and selection for positions is competitive.
For more information, an application and a list of current discovery learning projects, visit
http://engineering.colorado.edu/activelearning/discovery.htm.
Double Degrees
It is possible to obtain double degrees in two engineering disciplines or one degree in engineering and a
second degree from a department in another college or school of the University. Students must satisfy
curricula for both programs and normally complete a minimum of 30 additional semester credit hours
above and beyond the degree with the larger minimum credit hour requirement. If the student can
satisfy both degree requirements with fewer than 30 additional hours, the difference can be made up
with free electives. If both bachelor’s degrees are in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, a
minimum of 143 credits are required (128 + 15). Another exception is the pioneering dual CVEN-APPM
degree program described earlier, which is a special opportunity for research- and analytically-inclined
students or those who seek a broader career horizon.
CVEN Advising Guide
8
August 2012
Of the 30 additional semester credit hours, regular double degree students must complete 24 semester
credit hours in courses offered by the secondary academic department or in courses approved in
advance by the department as substitutes. Transfer students pursuing double degrees must complete a
minimum of 75 semester credit hours as a degree student in the College of Engineering and Applied
Science and must satisfy all other stipulations regarding total hours required and approval of all
coursework by both departments concerned.
Students may coordinate their double degree schedule by closely interacting with academic advisors in
each of the departments involved. It is in the student’s best interest to select courses that satisfy degree
requirements in both departments as frequently as possible. In some cases, it may be preferable to
pursue an MS degree rather than two undergraduate degrees.
Minors
Numerous minor opportunities exist that would satisfy humanities/social science electives and/or
technical electives. Many require no additional course work beyond the minimum BS requirements. For
more information on minor opportunities and requirements, visit:
http://advising.colorado.edu/students/current-students/majors-and-minors-available-to-as-students
and http://www.colorado.edu/engineering/academics/degrees-minors-certificates.
Semester at Sea
Administered through the Office of International Education, and managed by the University of
Pittsburgh’s Institute for Shipboard Education, students explore and learn valuable insights into the
various societies visited, allowing students to analyze and discuss their observations in formal classes on
the shipboard campus. Set sail aboard the SS Universe Explorer each semester and summers. Contact
the Office of International Education for more information, Center for Community (C4C) Suite S355,
(303) 492-7741.
Study Abroad
Study abroad, usually taken in the junior year, can be an enriching experience. Information about this
unique opportunity can be obtained from the University Study Abroad Office, Center for Community
(C4C) Suite S355, 303-492-7741. The purpose of these guidelines is to assist the student and his or her
faculty advisor in planning the courses to take overseas. In order to guarantee that the courses taken
abroad will count toward the CU degree, the student must get the planned program approved by the
CVEN Undergraduate Study Abroad Advisor.
Many liberal arts courses taken abroad will satisfy the requirements for electives in the humanities and
social sciences. Some courses taken abroad may count as technical electives. To guarantee that the
courses taken abroad will count toward the CVEN degree, the planned program must be approved by
your faculty advisor and the Transfer Credit Evaluator.
Student Societies
Students have excellent opportunities to become involved in discipline-related activities outside of the
classroom. The department has active chapters in a number of major student societies including
American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), Association of General Contractors (AGC), Illumination
Engineering Society (IES), and Engineers without Borders (EWB-CU).

CEAE Policy on Academic Integrity
The Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering (CEAE) requires all students to
adhere to a strict policy of academic integrity. These expectations are in accordance with the University
of Colorado Boulder Honor Code (http://www.colorado.edu/honorcode/), but this policy is intended to
provide more specific guidelines for all undergraduate and graduate students in CEAE. Ethical behavior
in college sets the stage for a lifetime of professional and ethical behavior that is expected of all
engineering professionals. This policy describes the academic sanctions that will be imposed by CEAE
faculty members. Faculty retain the right to set academic sanctions, and if they choose individual
courses can deviate from the expectations stated below; these changes will be noted in the course
syllabus. All incidents of academic misconduct will be reported to the Honor Code Council. Nonacademic sanctions are the purview of the Honor Code Council.
Any activity that could give you an unfair advantage over other students may be cheating. Specific
examples of actions that are considered to be cheating and therefore violations of academic integrity:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Plagiarizing a homework, lab report, or problem set. On assignments that require you to use
supplemental materials, you must properly document the sources of information that you used. If
you are uncertain about allowable reference materials or how to document your sources, ask your
instructor in advance. Specific examples of plagiarism include:
o copying from a solution manual
o copying from Internet sites
o copying from previous semester’s homework set or lab report
o copying directly from classmates
o copying lab data that you yourself did not participate in collecting
Plagiarizing content in a paper, report, thesis, or dissertation, by copying material from a published
sources or the internet, without appropriate citation format and attribution
Using unapproved information during a closed-book test or quiz (such as a reference sheet,
information stored in a calculator, iPhone, information written on your skin)
Copying from another student during a quiz, exam, or test
Working in groups on web based quizzes, exams, or tests
Working in groups on take-home quizzes, exams, or tests
Asking another student about questions on an exam that you have not yet taken
Changing the answer on your test/homework after it was graded and then telling the instructor that
there was a grading mistake
Allowing another student to copy your homework, lab report, or allowing another student to look at
your answers during a quiz or exam
The list above is not exhaustive; other violations are possible
Any violation will be reported to the Honor Code Council.
Any first violation of academic integrity on graded course activities (i.e. homework, lab reports, exams)
will result in a minimum sanction of a zero score and an entry in your department file. Instructors can
increase these penalties to assigning a failing grade (F) for the entire course. The department will retain
a list of all instances of academic integrity violations. Additional sanctions will be imposed for
subsequent violations.
