Additional requirements: Professional electives must include 15 credits total with 1 course from the Water Resources Engineering Group and 1 course from the Environmental Engineering Group. A maximum of 4 credits total from Individual Problems, Internships (max 2 cr.), and Undergraduate Research may be counted toward professional electives. The professional elective program must contain a minimum of 2 design intensive courses (see CE/BREN flow chart). Students must successfully complete all key courses prior to taking any professional electives. A maximum of 3 credit-hours may be included from a completed MSU minor, a prior or concurrent BS/BA degree in another major, or courses in a completed MSU Honors Program. A student may petition to include other senior or graduate level courses consistent with the degree program but not listed here (requires Academic Adviser and Department Head approval).
A minimum of 128 credits is required for graduation; 42 of these credits must be in courses numbered 300 and above.
