Students in their 4th semester and wanting to opt for the Double Major program in Civil Engineering may apply in response to the call for admission to the Double Major program made during that semester.  Students should have a minimum CPI of 8.0 at the time of applying for the Double Major program in Civil Engineering.  Once a student is admitted into the Double Major program, s/he will be advised by the DUGC convener of both the parent department and the CE DUGC convener regarding the course template, course requirements, time table clashes and other issues.

 

A Double Major student is entitled to a waiver of 36-OE credits from the graduation requirements of the parent department.  Nonetheless, a student may withdraw at any time from the Double Major program in Civil Engineering.  The student should then complete all graduation requirements of the parent department for graduation with a single B.Tech.BS degree.
