Check with your advisor to make sure the courses you have selected will fulfill your degree requirements. 

The SSH credits can be, and are encouraged to be, used towards the completion of a minor.


IDEA Course

Students must take at least one IDEA Course in the fulfillment of the curriculum requirements. The course may be used to fulfill the following CEE requirements:

  1. IDEA courses can be used to fulfill free elective credits.
  2. IDEA courses may be used to fulfill any of the (9) credits of CEE general SSH course requirements if they are on the approved SSH lists.
    1. The Humanities List (Humanities Division) in the catalog.
    2. The Social Sciences List (Social Sciences Division) in the catalog.
  3. IDEA courses may be used to fulfill CEE Group SSH electives if they meet the requirements of the specific CEE Group 1, 2, or 3 SSH per list in the CEE curriculum notes.
  4. IDEA courses may be used to fulfill professional elective credits if the IDEA course prefix and level (3xx) meets the Professional Electives requirements in the CEE Curriculum notes.

Professional Electives

Professional Electives are upper-level courses (300 and above; as well as ECS 222, ELE 231, and MAE 251 that have not been used for degree credits), generally from professional schools at SU or SUNY-ESF, and must be selected in consultation with the student’s academic advisor.  Many Professional Electives can be used towards completion of a minor.  Approved Professional Electives are courses offered in the following schools/colleges with the indicated prefixes that meet the above stated criteria.

Technical Electives


Technical Electives MUST be CEE courses numbered 300 and above.  They are to be selected in consultation with a student’s advisor to advance the student’s knowledge in a specific area of interest in civil or environmental engineering.


Free Electives


Any SU or ESF three or four credit course, or a combination of several one and two credit courses can be used as free electives.  Academic Excellence Workshops (AEW), Physical Education (PED) courses, remedial courses (e.g., MAT 193, MAT 194, WRT 104, ENL 207, etc.) and ROTC courses that are not cross-listed with other SU courses cannot be used as free electives.  ROTC courses that are cross-listed with other SU courses are treated in the same manner as the cross-listed courses and thus may be used as free electives if those cross-listed courses satisfy the free electives requirement.
