civil engineering admission to upper division the first two years of the curriculum are considered to be lower-division and the two remaining years upper-division students must apply for upperdivision status in civil engineering in order to be admitted to selected upperdivision civil engineering courses factors considered include overall gradepoint average performance in selected lower-division courses and a reflective statement of why you wish to be a civil engineer upper-division status is the only a prerequisite for ce 320 ce 352 ce 360 and ce 370 to gain upper-division status you must have • completed 45 semester credits • an overall gpa of at least 2.50 • passed the following courses with an average of 2.70 or better • ce 280 civil engineering case studies • ce 282 engineering practice • chem 112 general chemistry ii • ce/engr/me 350 engineering mechanics of materials • math 275 multivariable and vector calculus • math 333 differential equations with matrix theory • filed an application letter consisting of two to three paragraphs expressing why you wish to take upper-division courses • included a copy of your boise state university transcript either unofficial or official with the application you may apply in the semester you are finishing the above requirements if you do your application will be reviewed at the end of that semester program educational objectives graduates of the boise state civil engineering program will be competent engineers that 1.  apply theoretical and technical knowledge to evaluate and solve problems in a wide variety of civil engineering applications 2.  understand and protect public health and safety 3.  have communication skills to effectively convey solutions to colleagues and the general public and 4.  sseek to continuously improve knowledge and skills to understand the complex interactions of a variety of contemporary socio-economic issues and to meet the demands of a changing world civil engineering design civil engineering students gain design experience throughout their undergraduate careers at boise state as freshmen students are introduced to the fundamentals of design in the introduction to engineering course in which team projects and planning are emphasized as sophomores students take statics dynamics and mechanics of materials classes in which students learn to solve open ended-problems and select alternative designs in the junior year students take courses in fluid mechanics and environmental materials soils structural and transportation engineering these courses include laboratory sections and have significant design components in the form of practical problems alternative approaches to solutions feasibility considerations and specifications of systems in their final year students participate in a capstone senior design course in which they work on a complex multidisciplinary project students interact closely with local engineers from industry or state government to prepare drawings preliminary reports feasibility studies and evaluation of alternatives final written and oral presentations are key elements of this course students also take a required civil engineering design elective in their senior year and may elect to take other design courses to fulfill other technical elective requirements degree requirements civil engineering bachelor of
