The mission of the undergraduate program in Environmental Systems Engineering is to prepare students for incorporating environmentally sustainable design, strategies and practices into natural and built systems and infrastructure involving buildings, water supply, and coastal regions. Courses in the program are multidisciplinary in nature, combining math/science/engineering fundamentals, and tools and skills considered essential for an engineer, along with a choice of one of three focus areas for more in-depth study: coastal environments, freshwater environments, or urban environments. This major offers the opportunity for a more focused curriculum than the Environmental and Water Studies concentration in the Civil Engineering degree program. The program of study, which includes a capstone experience, aims to equip engineering students to take on the complex challenges of the twenty-first century involving natural and built environments, in consulting and industry as well as in graduate school.
Advanced analyses in soil mechanics and their practical applications in foundation engineering; compressibility of soils, settlement analysis, and tolerable settlement; lateral earth pressures and design of earth retaining structures; bearing capacity of shallow foundations; in-situ soil testing for foundation design; design of deep foundations, including driven piles, drilled shaft foundations, and laterally loaded piles.
Principles of applied engineering mechanics as they relate to machines; static force analysis in both 2 and 3 dimensional systems, kinetics of machine components by the methods of force-mass-acceleration, work-energy, and impulse-momentum; machine balancing; introduction to mechanical vibrations. Prerequisite(s): , ; or ; .
Students proposing IDMENs must have at least four quarters of undergraduate work remaining at Stanford after the quarter in which their proposals are first submitted. Any changes in a previously approved major must be endorsed by the advisers and re-approved by the IDMEN subcommittee. A request by a student to make changes in her or his approved curriculum must be made sufficiently far in advance so that, should the request be denied, adequate time remains to complete the original, approved curriculum. Proposals are reviewed and acted upon once a quarter. Planning forms may be obtained from the Handbook for Undergraduate Engineering Programs at . Completed proposals should be submitted to Darlene Lazar in the Office of Student Affairs, Huang Engineering Center, Suite 135. An IDMEN cannot be a student's secondary major.
Selection, design, investigation, and completion of an independent, original research study resulting in a document prepared for submission as a potential publication and a completed undergraduate thesis. Restricted to students in University Honors Program. Prerequisite(s): .
This curriculum allows students to simultaneously pursue B.S. degrees in mining engineering and civil engineering by completing additional courses. A suggested schedule for the dual curriculum in mining engineering and civil engineering is shown below.
Special topics in electrical engineering not covered in regular courses. Course sections arranged and approved by the chair of the student's doctoral advisory committee and the department chair.
The Statler College and its constituent departments offer numerous competitive scholarships to undergraduate students who have been in the college for at least one year. Scholarships are based on several factors including academic performance, financial need, and research involvement. These scholarships require applications to be completed by the end of the fall semester. More information can be found at . These scholarships would be awarded in conjunction to any other WVU scholarship a student may be receiving.
Transfer credit is given for courses taken elsewhere whenever the courses are equivalent or substantially similar to Stanford courses in scope and rigor. The policy of the School of Engineering is to study each transfer student's preparation and make a reasonable evaluation of the courses taken prior to transfer by means of a petition process. Inquiries may be addressed to the Office of Student Affairs in 135 Huang Engineering Center. For more information, see the transfer credit section of the Handbook for Undergraduate Engineering Programs at .
Approximately six weeks after receipt of all items listed above, a decision regarding admission will be mailed to the applicant. After being admitted, students must meet with an advisor and complete a Graduate Student Advising Form (obtainable in the Civil Engineering Department). This advising form must be kept current and on file in the Department Office.
To receive the degrees of bachelor of science in mining engineering and bachelor of science in civil engineering, a student must take all of the courses indicated below and achieve a grade point average of 2.0 or better for all civil engineering courses attempted and a grade point average of 2.25 in all mining engineering courses attempted, except for those courses in which a grade of W was received. If a course is repeated, only the last grade received is counted in computing the grade point average, and the course credit hours are counted only once. This requirement assures that the student has demonstrated overall competence in the chosen major.
This sought-after degree has thesis and non-thesis options and two areas of focus: digital communications and avionics & radio navigation for the electrical engineering side, and project management and computer systems safety for the computer engineering side.
Students with a baccalaureate degree in engineering majors other than Civil Engineering (e.g., Electrical and Electronic, Industrial, Mechanical, or Surveying) or in other non-engineering scientific disciplines (e.g., Mathematics, Physics, or Geology) who wish to pursue the graduate program in Civil Engineering may be considered on an individual basis. Such students may be admitted as conditionally classified students and will be required to complete a specifically designed list of undergraduate prerequisite courses in engineering and/or mathematics, physics, and chemistry to correct undergraduate deficiencies. Such a student must have an approved study program on file with the Department while undertaking this qualifying work. Upon completion of these courses with a GPA of 2.8 or better, the student may apply for classified graduate status in Civil Engineering.
