### Prerequisites to Graduate Study

Listed below are the prerequisites for graduate study in the various specializations within the department of civil, construction and environmental engineering. They are minimum course requirements for holders of bachelor’s degrees.

Equivalent courses may be substituted. If these conditions are not met, the student is required to remedy deficiencies by taking appropriate courses on a graded basis. These courses do not count toward a graduate degree.
