Required core courses (10-11 credits):

•    CEE 265 Sustainable Engineering Principles
•    CEE 325 Fluid Mechanics (or equivalent from: MECHENG 320, CHE 341, NERS 344, NAVARCH 320, AEROSP 225, BIMEDE 331, MATSCIE 335)
•    CEE 365 Environmental Engineering Principles

Two electives, (6 credits), from the following courses:
