Bachelor of Science as recommended by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering/Course 1-A

General Institute Requirements (GIRs)
Science Requirement
Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences Requirement
Restricted Electives in Science and Technology (REST) Requirement [can be satisfied by 1.018J, 1.050, and 18.03 in the Departmental Program]
Laboratory Requirement [can be satisfied by 1.101 and 1.102 in the Departmental Program]
Total GIR Subjects Required for SB Degree
Communication Requirement  
The program includes a Communication Requirement of 4 subjects:
2 subjects designated as Communication Intensive in Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (CI-H); and 2 subjects designated as Communication Intensive in the Major (CI-M).(1)
PLUS Departmental Program
Subject names below are followed by credit units, and by prerequisites, if any
(corequisites in italics).
Required Subjects
1.018J Ecology I: The Earth System, 12, REST, CI-M
1.020 Ecology II: Engineering for Sustainability, 12; Physics I (GIR), 18.03*
1.050 Engineering Mechanics I, 12, REST; Physics I (GIR), Calculus II (GIR)
1.060 Engineering Mechanics II, 12; permission of instructor*
18.03 Differential Equations, 12, REST; Calculus II (GIR)
One of the following two subjects:
1.00 Introduction to Computers and Engineering Problem Solving, 12, REST; Calculus I (GIR)  
1.010 Uncertainty in Engineering, 12; Calculus II (GIR)  
1.101 Introduction to Civil and Environmental Engineering Design I, 6, 1/2 LAB; 1.018, 1.050
1.102 Introduction to Civil and Environmental Engineering Design II, 6, 1/2 LAB; Physics II (GIR)*
Restricted Electives
Students are required to take a coherent set of seven full subjects that meet a well-defined educational goal. These electives may be from within or outside the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Students must provide a clear rationale for their elective choices, which must be approved by their academic advisors and the undergraduate officer of the department.
Departmental Program Units That Also Satisfy the GIRs
Unrestricted Electives
Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree
No subject can be counted both as part of the 17-subject GIRs and as part of the 180 units required beyond the GIRs. Every subject in the student's departmental program will count toward one or the other, but not both.
* Alternate prerequisites and corequisites are listed in the subject description.
(1) To satisfy the CI-M component of the Communication Requirement, students must take the department's two CI-M subjects (1.013 and 1.018J) or, if appropriate, take one Course 1 CI-M subject and petition the Subcommittee on the Communication Requirement to substitute one CI-M from another science or engineering field. The outside CI-M must fit into the coherent program of electives approved by the student's academic advisor.
