The Department of Civil Engineering Science offers professional programs lead-
ing to the degrees of Bachelor of Science in civil engineering, Master of Engi-
neering, Master of Science, and Ph.D. For details concerning programs for
graduate study leading to the M.S., M.Eng., and Ph.D. degrees in civil engi-
neering, students should consult the Graduate School Catalc^. The curriculum
is accredited by the Engineers' Council for Professional Development (ECPD)
as a professional engineering curriculum.

Course work is offered in the areas of (1) solid mechanics and materials,
(2) soil mechanics and foundation engineering, (3) structural mechsmics and
structural engineering, (4) highway and transportation engineering, (5) water
resources, and (6) sanitary engineering. The professional education at BYU
emphasizes a strong science foundation in physics, chemistry, and mathematics.
Application of mathematics is accomplished early in the program through a
correlation with physics, beginning in the freshman year. An understanding of
civil engineering problems on an elementary but fundamental level is afforded
the student in the freshman and sophomore years. The student is also provided
with a well-balanced program of social studies, religion, biological sciences, and

The extensive background of the faculty will prove valuable to those who
wish to undertake special projects in their undergraduate work or research
topics in their graduate work. Seminar work and participation in technical
meetings sponsored by student organizations provide a rich beginning for a
career in civil engineering. Professional opportunities upon graduation in this
field exist in research and development, design, construction, sales engineering,
teaching, business management, and many other areas.

Entrance Requirements

For both the general entrance requirements of the University and the particular
requirements specified for the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences, see
those sections of this catalog.

Grade Requirements

To receive the B.S. degree in civil engineering, a student must complete courses
satisfying University and departmental requirements, including a minimum
cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 (C). A cimiulative average grade of "C"
or better must be maintained in all engineering subjects; otherwise, the student
is placed on probationary status in the department. No more than nine hours
of "D" credit in engineering subjects may be counted toward graduation. A
student must achieve an average of "C" or better in each area of chemistry,
mathematics, and physics.











General Education Requirements

Engineering students are subject to all of the general education requirements
listed in this catalog, with the following exceptions and suggestions:

1. The biological science requirement may be reduced to four semester hours
instead of the six semester hours specified. Civil engineers will meet the
biological sciences requirement by taking Micro. 121 and 381.

2. Maximum advantage should be taken of the four hours of religion credit
given for attending devotional assemblies for a period of four years.

3. It is especially recommended that the student take Econ. Ill, Psych. Ill,
or Sociol. Ill in satisfying the social science group requirements.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Science Degree

The student first enrolls in the general curriculum of civil engineering and
continues in a prescribed technical program for three years. In the fourth year,
he has the opportunity of selecting technical electives to strengthen a chosen
field of interest. Also, in the fourth year, the student may elect to begin study
for the Master of Science or Master of Engineering degree.

All students must satisfy the general education requirements of the University
and the departmental requirements, including 9 hours of technical electives, in
order to earn the B.S. degree. This will normally take the student four academic
years to complete. The departmental course requirements are given in the tech-
nical flow chart contained herein. This chart also indicates the technical pre-
requisite requirements for each course. Single connecting lines indicate pre-
requisites, and double connecting lines indicate corequisites. A typical sequence
of courses for the standard four-year program is also given herein.

The student who has sufficient high school preparation in graphics and
mathematics may begin these programs with Civ. Eng. 103 and Math. 112, re-
spectively. If not sufficiently prepared, the student must take Civ. Eng. 101 and
Math. Ill as beginning courses. It is recommended that the student take History
170 and Health 130 by examination.

Engineering students may register for 18 hours, exclusive of physical educa-
tion, forum, and devotional, in any one semester without obtaining special

Prearchitecture Curriculum Program

Glenn L. Enke, Chairman, Prearchitecture Advisory Committee

Brigham Young University does not have a school of architecture. It does, how-
ever, provide opportunities for the prearchitecture student to take basic required
courses in English, languages, history, art, sociology, mathematics, physics,
chemistry, graphic communication, engineering, and environmental design, which
are normally acceptable by all accredited schools of architecture without loss
of credit.

Three alternatives are open to the prearchitecture candidate who wishes to
achieve a professional degree in architecture.

1. Pursue up to three years of a prearchitecture curriculum; then, transfer
into an accredited school of architecture to complete an additional three
years of professional training leading to the Master of Arts degree.

2. Pursue not more than one year of prearchitecture curriculum training; then,
transfer to an accredited school of architecture to complete not fewer than


four additional years of professional training leading to the Bachelor of Arts
3. Earn a B.S. or B.A. degree in one of several acceptable major fields; then,
transfer into an accredited school of architecture to complete an additional
three years of professional training leading to the Master of Arts degree.

As of early 1972, approximately thirty of the accredited schools of architecture
have adopted a six -year program culminating in the Master of Arts degree. A
three-year prearchitecture curriculum specifically selected to meet the require-
ments of each of these schools will usually permit entrance at the fourth-year
level in most of these schools. Certain of these schools also require the earning
of a B.S. or B.A. degree as a part of the final three years of the professional
master's degree program. It is unlikely that more than one year's prearchitecture
curriculum can be programmed at Brigham Young University or at any other
major university not having a school of architecture to meet the requirements
of the remaining thirty-five to forty schools of architecture that currently offer
five-year bachelor's degree programs.

It is usually possible to enter the final three years of any of the six-year
master's degree programs in architecture with a valid B.A. or B.S. degree in a
rather wide variety of majors, such as English, art, language, engineering, en-
vironmental design, music, sociolt^y, psychology, etc. However, there are cer-
tain basic courses in the architectural curriculum that must be included in the
baccalaureate degree to insure acceptance for transfer as a part of this earned

It is essential that the prearchitecture candidate select the school or schools
of architecture into which he may wish to transfer as early as possible. In-
dividual correlation must then be made with these schools to determine what
specific basic courses must be taken at Brigham Young University to meet the
entrance requirements of the professional portion of their architectural pro-
