Minor in Construction Management

An undergraduate Construction Management Minor  enhances the capability of students who may seek employment in the construction industry or who may be interested in studying Construction Management at the graduate level.

Transfer Students and Credits

Potential transfer students should refer to the Institute guidelines in this catalog. The Department of Civil and Urban Engineering has established additional requirements and interpreted the Institute guidelines as indicated in this section.

The 129-credit curriculum is fulfilled by combining transfer credits, credits by examination and courses taken at NYU Tandon. Transfer credits in mathematics, chemistry, physics, humanities and social sciences are evaluated by the Office of Academic Affairs with faculty guidance from specific departments. Transfer credits in civil engineering and other technical areas are evaluated by the faculty of the Department of Civil and Urban Engineering.

The length of time for a transfer student to complete the BS in Civil Engineering depends upon three factors:

  1. The total number of transfer credits awarded;
  2. The particular courses required to complete degree requirements; and
  3. Enrollment status (part-time or full-time).

Transfer Notes
Transfer students should understand that they can be awarded transfer credits for courses with a C grade or better and then only for courses that are applicable toward the BS in Civil Engineering as described in this catalog.

A residency requirement also must be fulfilled. To earn a BS, a student must complete a minimum of 30 credits at NYU Tandon at the junior or senior level (courses numbered CE 3XXX or CE 4XXX). These credits must include the design project, CE-UY 4814 .

Part-Time Students

Students may register as part-time students (fewer than 12 credits a semester). Such students are advised, however, that the department does not offer many undergraduate courses in the evening and that part-time students must take most courses during the day. Part-time students should maintain close contact with their academic advisers to work out the details of course sequencing efficiently and effectively.

Previous Curricula

It is a generally accepted rule that students are subject to the requirements of the catalog in effect when they enrolled initially at NYU Tandon. In many cases, however, it will be easier to complete the current curriculum. Academic advisers work with students to make sure that they fulfill the proper requirements for graduation.
