Discover Structural Engineering

The Minor in Structural Engineering is intended for students in engineering who desire additional knowledge in the structural or geotechnical engineering areas and whose current major is complementary to these topics.

The Minor in Structural Engineering is not open to students pursuing the Civil Engineering degree.

For details on the Minor in Structural Engineering or for more information, please contact Dr. Camilla Saviz (csaviz@pacific.edu), 209.946.3077.
