Civil Engineering Student Handbook – Fall 2008 2 INTRODUCTION This handbook is intended to help students in the Department of Civil Engineering understand and make effective use of the educational opportunities available within the framework of the civil engineering curriculum. With these opportunities come responsibilities to plan carefully, and to use resources of the University to support development of the student’s personal, academic, and professional objectives. The faculty in the Department is available to assist students in this endeavor. The primary responsibility for meeting graduation requirements rests with the student. Although this handbook delineates many requirements of the University, the College of Engineering, and the Department, it should not be utilized as a sole source of information to the exclusion of other University publications. Students should obtain current copies of University publications that will describe the most recent policies. Students should be aware that the educational process is constantly evolving. This may result in periodic changes in curriculum requirements. Students are advised that these changes may have an impact upon course prerequisites and course offerings that may affect their program of study. The Department will make every effort to accommodate students who would be adversely affected by such changes. However, students are responsible for informing themselves of changes and determining the impact the changes will have upon their course sequencing and ultimately their graduation date. The program in civil engineering consists of a series of courses in mathematics, science, engineering science, engineering design, and humanities/social sciences. ACCREDITATION The civil engineering program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Board for engineering and Technology (ABET). DEGREE REQUIREMENTS Students entering as of the Fall 2008 semester are required to successfully complete 128 credit hours of required courses in the curriculum. TRANSFER The College of Engineering Student Services website on Academic Advising provide details on the procedures and standards of credit transfer: http://www.engg.ksu.edu/studentservices/TransferPolicies.html QUIZ-OUT PROCEDURES The Department allows qualified students to avoid repeating course work in subject areas they have already mastered through non-academic or non- transfer credit means. Students should enroll in the course for which they seek credit by examination and contact the course instructor or department head during the first week of classes for details of the quiz-out procedure to be followed for the course.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
