Junior Year. The Freshman and Sophomore courses in Irrigation Engineering are the same as for the other Civil Engineering courses, except that they omit Mineralogy and Shop Practice, and add three units elective in the Sophomore year.

At the beginning of the Junior year, the general course in Civil Engineering divides into three separate branches, one of which the student must choose; namely (1) Railroad Engineering, (2) Sanitary Engineering, and (3) Irrigation Engineering.

The undergraduate course in Civil Engineering comprehends three great divisions of work: First, surveying, practical astronomy, railroad location, topography, mapping, etc., which may be called field engineering; second, civil engineering construction, embracing the scientific methods of designing and constructing roofs, bridges, sanitary systems, retaining walls, dams, roads, canals, railway structures, etc.; and third, the applications of the principles of civil engineering to the practical problems of irrigation.

As much time as is practicable, including a summer class in surveying, is given to the first division.of work, with the intention of rendering the student skillful and ready in the use of the instruments and methods adopted by the best field engineers.

Same course as for Railroad Engineering students, except omission of lectures (1 unit).

[ocr errors]

Full theoretical discussion is given to the different topics in constructive engineering; and practical application and illustration are given at length in the engineering draughting-rooms.

GRADUATE COURSES.

To graduate students are extended the facilities for advanced or special work which the libraries, laboratories, and collections of the University afford.

A canditate for the degree of Civil Engineer must be a graduate of the College of Civil Engineering of this University, or must have successfully completed a course of study equivalent to the regular undergraduate course of that college; and must pass a satisfactory exam ination in the following subjects; railway tunnels; principles of construction of walls, arches, domes, retaining walls; specifications and contracts; engineering and irrigation laws, irrigation engineering, etc.; standard authors upon river and harbor engineering; practical astronomy; drawing and designing of engineering structures; English, and either history or political economy. The applicant must have had at least one year of actual practice of his profession, and must present an acceptable original memoir upon some subject bearing upon his profession. This degree will not be given earlier than three years after completion of the undergraduate work.
