The Voluntary Statewide Transfer Compact for Civil Engineering can be viewed here. You can download the entire Civil Engineering Tuning Packet, which outlines critical skill areas needed by students and graduates of Civil Engineering programs, here.
Institutions of higher learning participating in the Voluntary Statewide Transfer Compact for Civil Engineering may be seen by clicking the button below. This means that these institutions have agreed: a) to teach courses at the lower level as listed in the Academic Course Guide Manual, updated and published each year by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and 2) to accept the courses listed for transfer into the Civil Engineering program at the university level as specified in the Compact.
For further or more specific information regarding transfer to a Civil Engineering program in a Texas university, it is recommended that you contact the engineering department at the institution in which you are interested. Links to each engineering department oar provided in the chart above.
For questions regarding the Tuning project or the Compact itself, please contact Mary Smith, Program Coordinator, or Debbie Rodriguez, Program Specialist at the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.
