Section 71.50.1 Course Requirements (BEng in Building Engineering)

Degree Requirements

The program in Building Engineering consists of the Engineering Core, the Building Engineering Core, and one of the options listed below. The normal length of the program is 119 credits.

BEng in Building Engineering (119 credits)

29

credits from the Engineering Core

Note: Students in BEng (Bldg) must successfully complete BLDG 482 instead of ENGR 392.

Note: The Engineering Core credits for students in the Building Engineering program are reduced from 30.5 credits to 29 credits since Building Engineering students are not required to take ENGR 202 (1.5 credits) in their program.

74.5credits from the Building Engineering Core
15.5credits from Option A – Building Energy and Environment Electives or Option B – Building Structures and Construction Electives
