Engineering – Civil


Students interested in transfer to engineering majors at Auburn University are encouraged to contact a Transfer Specialist in Engineering Student Services (, 334-844-4310).

Students who graduate from a programs in the College of Engineering at Auburn University in must complete 36 hours in General Studies.

Students must complete a sequence in either History (Area IV) or Literature (Area II). It is recommended that this sequence be in World History or Western Civilization. While U.S. History will fulfill the sequence requirement, it will not fulfill Auburn SLO requirements potentially resulting in additional core courses being required. The additional Social Science course for Area IV must be POL 211 American Government (3SH) as is required by the Civil Engineering major.

Area II must include at least one Literature course, one Fine Art course, and an additional course. It is recommended that the additional course in this area be the Business Ethics course taken at Auburn because there is not an equivalent Ethics course available for transfer.

In addition to the Natural Sciences and Mathematics courses listed for Area III, Civil Engineering students take the following courses:

  • MTH 126 Calculus II (4SH)
  • MTH 227 Calculus III (4SH)
  • MTH 237 Linear Algebra (3SH)
  • MTH 238 Applied Differential Equations (3SH)
  • CHM 111 College Chemistry I (4SH)
  • CHM 112 College Chemistry II (4SH)

MTH 270 Probability and Statistics (3SH) is not required.  It is not equivalent to STAT 3010 required for the major.

A programming language course is required. MATLAB is strongly recommended.  CIS 231 FORTRAN Programming and CIS 251 C++ Programming are not required.
