**Total number of credits is 18 for the Emphasis Capstone plus technical electives including CEE 480  and/or CEE 481 .

Students enrolled in civil and environmental engineering internship programs are required to take a one-credit seminar course ( CEE 225 CEE 325  , CEE 425  ) at the appropriate level each summer they are enrolled in the program. These credits are in addition to the total required for other engineering students.

Class attendance is mandatory in all civil and environmental engineering courses. Civil engineering students who need to repeat courses to meet the minimum grade-point average requirement set by the university or the college are allowed to repeat only those courses in which they received a grade lower than a “C” (2.0).

It is the policy of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering to not accept transfer courses from outside the NSHE system with grades lower than a “C”.
