NOTES:
1. Any Deviations from the above list must be pre-approved in writing by the Structures Graduate Committee.
2. A maximum transfer of 6 credits from list III is allowed subject to the approval of the Graduate Advisor and the Dean. Transfer credits should not have been used toward a degree and should have been taken before the student enrolled at CCNY.
3. All Graduate students are expected to be proficient in computer usage and programming. Those who are not adequately prepared must take CE 335 or CSC 301 for no credit.
4. To enroll in the 3-credit project, CE5798, the student must have completed at least 12 credits from the approved list and must have a GPA of 3.25 or higher.  The student must select a mentor before he/she is allowed to register. A formal report reviewed by at least 2 full-time faculty members is required.
5. To enroll in the 6-credit thesis, CE 5799, the student must have completed at least 12 credits from the approved list and must have a GPA of 3.40 or higher.  The student must select a mentor before he/she is allowed to register. A formal report and a presentation to the whole CE Department are required.
6. 500 level courses are available for both graduate and undergraduate students. Graduate students can take only up to two (2) such courses for credit and only if they score a B or better.
