In order to permit undergraduate students in any engineering major to take advantage of CSU’s environmental expertise, the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers a minor in Environmental Engineering. The minor is designed to broaden the academic background of undergraduate engineering students seeking a career in environmental fields, and to provide fundamentals required to pursue a graduate degree in Environmental Engineering or related fields.

Effective Fall 2012

Students must satisfactorily complete the total credits required for the minor. Minors and interdisciplinary minors require 12 or more upper-division (300- to 400-level) credits.

Additional coursework may be required due to prerequisites.
