A:  Our CEE Undergraduate Handbook is a great document for learning about the curriculum. Another good idea is visit the Academic Adviser Becky Stillwell. In addition, some students may wish to take CEE195 – About Civil Engineering, a one-credit class offered in fall semesters that addresses all aspects of civil and environmental engineering.
