Students are encouraged to take GEOE 203 Earth Dynamics.
Students can take MATH 321 or CHE 315 or ECON 210 as a statistics course. If students take MATH 321 Applied Statistical Methods as their statistics elective and MATH 421 Statistical Theory I as their technical elective, they will earn a minor in Math, without adding extra courses to their degree plan.
UND Civil Engineering Degree Program requires courses as well as ENGL 110 College Composition I and ENGL 130 Composition II: Writing for Public Audiences to be completed with at least a “C” grade in each of the courses.
Either ENGR 200 Computer Applications in Engineering OR ENGR 202 Dynamics must be completed with a "C" or higher.
Students must ensure all appropriate pre-requisites are met prior to registering for all courses in the curriculum.
Civil Engineering Master's Requirements
The applicant must meet the School of Graduate Studies' current minimum general admission requirements as published in the graduate catalog.
- Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from an ABET accredited or equivalent program.
- Graduate Record Examination General Test for applicants from non-ABET accredited programs.
- A cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 2.5 for all undergraduate work or a GPA of at least 3.0 for the junior and senior years of undergraduate work (based on A = 4.00).
- Satisfy the School of Graduate Studies' English Language Proficiency requirements as published in the graduate catalog.
Students seeking the Master of Engineering degree at the University of North Dakota must satisfy all general requirements set forth by the School of Graduate Studies as well as particular requirements set forth by the Civil Engineering Department.
- A minimum of 30 semester credits in a major option, including the credits granted for the design project and the research leading to the design project.
- At least one-half of the credits must be at or above the 500-level.
- A maximum of one-fourth of the credit hours required for the degree may be transferred from another institution.
- Preparation of a written design project approved by the faculty advisor.
- Comprehensive final examination.

Combined Degree in Civil Engineering
To encourage undergraduate engineering students to extend their studies to include a graduate degree, the College of Engineering and Mines has a combined program that permits students to earn both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in an engineering discipline. This program allows students to designate two three-credit graduate courses to count for both degrees. The selected courses must have graduate course standing and be designated when a student requests admission to the program.
Students may be admitted to the Civil Engineering Combined Degree program after the completion of 95 credit hours toward the bachelor’s degree with a GPA of at least 3.3 and before completion of the bachelor’s degree. The student is admitted to the School of Graduate Studies' on completion of 125 credit hours for the bachelor’s degree.
