Opportunities and Facilities

Many opportunities exist in the field of civil engineering that encompass planning, designing, and managing a variety of projects. Your work could be on site at a project or at a computer workstation. Civil and environmental engineers often find themselves involved in many of the public work projects funded by federal, state, and municipal governments, as well as those projects undertaken by the private sector. As a structural engineer, you might analyze and design structures out of steel, concrete, aluminum, timber, plastic, and other new materials that are able to support required loads and withstand natural disasters. An environmental engineer, with a background in either physical, chemical, or biological science, helps to prevent and solve environmental problems. Engineers in the geotechnical realm apply technology, field test information, and laboratory analyses related to mechanics and mathematics to create the infrastructure facilities within and on top of the earth. The structure and stability of soils determine how and where to construct tunnels, pipelines, and deep foundations as well as highways and other buildings. In hydraulic and water resources engineering, you might design, construct, or maintain facilities related to the quality and quantity of water, flood prevention, wastewater treatment, and water front erosion protection. As a professional in transportation engineering, your purpose is to move people and things in a safe and efficient manner locally and through mass transportation systems. Transportation facilities include highways, airfields, railroads, and sea ports. Several courses are also offered in construction engineering.

Instructional equipment includes the MTS structures and material testing systems with computer control for data acquisition and analysis, equipment for in situ and laboratory measurements of engineering properties of soils and rocks, including triaxial, bearing, and shear testing equipment and seismographs; and a self-contained glass-sided tilting flume for investigations of flow phenomena and sediment transport. A complete stand-alone automated data acquisition and analysis system is available for undergraduate student laboratory work and research. A fully equipped water quality testing lab as well as portable field testing kits are used both for classroom teaching as well as for student research and design projects.

Students have access to a large number and variety of computer systems. A network of nearly 700 computing devices is available for the academic and research efforts of the college.

The college computers are connected to a high-speed, switched, fiber-optic LAN and to the Internet via the Florida State University connection to the NSF v BNS network. Other nearby resources include the Department of Scientific Computing. Additional information about the department can be obtained from the college home page: http://www.eng.fsu.edu.

Programs Offered

The department offers a program of study for the Bachelor of Science (BS) in civil engineering which is accredited by ABET, Inc, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD, 21202-4012, phone (410) 347-7700. The civil engineering major is broad-based, emphasizing all aspects of civil engineering practice, including structural geotechnical, construction, transportation, hydraulics, water resources, and environmental engineering. Within the civil engineering program, the environmental engineering major is a course of study that focuses primarily on environmental engineering, hydraulics, hydrology, water resources, and water quality.

The department also offers a minor in environmental engineering science. Regardless of focus, all students learn to apply state-of-the-art technologies to solve problems in these areas.

The department offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in civil engineering. Within the MS program, the courses only Master of Engineering (MEng) option is available. These programs provide areas of concentration in structural, geotechnical, environmental/water resources, and construction/transportation engineering.

Admission to graduate programs requires a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) in the last two years of undergraduate school and an acceptable score on the graduate record exam (GRE). For the MEng option, evidence of passing the NCEES Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) or Principles and Practice of Engineering (PE) exam or holding PE licensure may be used in lieu or the GRE. For more details, refer to the Graduate Bulletin or the department Web site at http://www.eng.fsu.edu/cee/grad/application_process.html.

Engineering Design

Following engineering design criteria established by ABET, the civil engineering curricula provide excellent design experiences for students. The faculty of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has carefully integrated design components into the curriculum with increased complexity as students progress toward graduation. These design components offer opportunities for students to work individually and in teams on meaningful engineering design experiences building upon the fundamental concepts of mathematics, basic sciences, humanities, social sciences, engineering topics, and oral and written communication skills. Design components in engineering coursework help students develop an appreciation for and apply the knowledge of the wide variety of courses they have studied. Consequently, they participate in meaningful solutions and effective design development for practical engineering problems.

A majority of the design experiences are integrated into junior and senior level courses.

In both majors, CGN 4800, Pre-Senior Design and Professional Issues, and CGN 4802, Senior Design Project, provide significant, culminating design experiences in which students working in interdisciplinary teams apply realistic constraints to an actual engineering scenario.

Additional information about design credits may be obtained from departmental brochures and by contacting faculty advisors at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Computer Skills Competency

All undergraduates at Florida State University must demonstrate basic computer skills competency prior to graduation. As necessary computer competency skills vary from discipline to discipline, each major determines the courses needed to satisfy this requirement. Undergraduate majors in civil and environmental engineering satisfy this requirement by earning a grade of "C–" or higher in CEG 2202L, Introduction to Geomatics Engineering Lab.

Oral Communication Competency

If a grade of "C–" or better is earned in the following two courses, the Oral Communication Competency requirement as defined in the "Undergraduate Degree Requirements" section of this General Bulletin will be satisfied.

Department Policies

Pre-Engineering students must adhere to the policies set by the College of Engineering, including standards on declaring Civil Engineering as a major. Students must achieve a grade of "C–" or better in all transfer courses and in all courses that are prerequisites to any required or elective engineering course. In addition, students are required to earn a "C–" or better in all engineering, mathematics, and science courses without any waiver.

Pre/Corequisite Course Policy

It is the policy of Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering that a student must receive grades of "C–" or better in all prerequisite courses prior to enrolling in a CEE course. Concurrent registration in a course and its prerequisites is not allowed. All prerequisites of the prerequisite course must be completed. Failure to abide by this policy can result in the cancellation of your enrollment in any course at any time during the semester and with no refund of fees. Corequisite courses must be taken concurrently or prior to enrolling in the course. Registering for and remaining in a course without having completed all of the pre- and corequisite courses as well as all their prerequisites can result in the Department or the College of Engineering administratively canceling your course enrollment at any time during the semester and with no refund of fees. Changes to prerequisites will be accompanied by a phase-in period: in such cases the CEE undergraduate committee shall serve as the authority regarding the implementation of such changes.

Course Repeat Policy

Criteria

A student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering will be placed on probationary status if the student falls into any of the following situations:

  • Accrues two grades below "C–" in a single engineering course that is required under his/her curriculum, or in MAC 2313/3313, MAP 3305/2302, or PHY 2049/3049
  • Accrues a total of three grades below "C–" in engineering courses that are required under his/her curriculum, MAC 2313/3313, MAP 3305/2302, and PHY 2049/3049.
  • Has an overall GPA below 2.0

Consequences

A student who meets the above criteria will be placed on academic probation during the subsequent semester and will be required to sign an academic probation/readmit contract with the department. A student may not graduate while on probation.

Reinstatement

To be reinstated, the following conditions must be met:

  • The student will have one semester (the probationary semester) to raise his/her GPA above 2.0
  • The student must retake all courses that were the cause for probation according to an agreed upon schedule (during the probationary semester, if available) and achieve a grade of "C–"or better.

Dismissal

A student on probation will be permanently dismissed from the CEE program and will not be eligible for further reinstatement upon the following conditions:

  • If a student who is on probation does not raise his/her GPA above 2.0 and/or achieve a grade of "C–"or better in all courses taken during the probationary semester.
  • If a student who has been reinstated to the program subsequently falls below an overall GPA of 2.0 and/or fails to achieve a grade of "C–" or better in any math, science, or engineering course.

A student who has already reached or exceeded the course repeat limits stated above prior to declaring the civil or environmental major is considered to be on reinstatement, and must achieve a grade of "C–" or better in all subsequent courses to avoid permanent dismissal.

Fundamentals of Engineering Exam

All undergraduate students are encouraged to take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam in the civil engineering discipline during their senior year.

Honors in the Major

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering offers Honors in the Major to encourage students to undertake independent and original research to enhance their undergraduate experience.
