SPANISH REQUIREMENT

* To study any subject at level 3 it is necessary to have passed the English reading requirement, the Spanish requirement (see Academic Council Agreements 75 and 76) and all curriculum level 1 subjects. In addition to taking the Civil Engineering Degree Project, it is necessary to have passed all level 2 curriculum subjects.

** As of the first semester of 2011all students must take two intensive courses in argumentative essay, labeled course Type E either CBU (Uniandino Basic Cycle) o CLE (Elective Course).

*** Undergraduate Student Regulations stablish that ‘in no case the will university consider those subjects taken without meeting the stablished requirements’, this includes each course laboratories (i.e. CEEXXXXL).

FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY

REQUIREMENT

Spanish Requirement

As of 2011, semester I, all students of the University must take one of these courses: Spanish (LT 1611) or Spanish: text writing (LG 1501), to fulfill this requirement. In addition, throughout their programs, they must take two subjects classified as Type E courses, which may coincide with their CBU (Uniandino Basic Cycle) or with other subjects.

Foreign Languages Requirements

The foreign language standard requires students to meet two requirements:

English Reading Requirement (LG 2999).

Second language proficiency requirement (LG 3999).

Levels

In the University of Los Andes, the first number after the department code, the Department in charge of each course, corresponds to the level to which it belongs (i.e. CEE-1XXX).

  • It is not possible to take Level 3 subjects (CEE 3XXX) without having passed and approved all Level 1 subjects in the Department (CEE 1XXX) and all Level 1 subjects corresponding to the basic cycle. The subject’s prerequisites and corequisites have been updated to prevent this situation from occurring.
  • CBU, CLE, Electives in Science, Mathematics and General Fundamentals of engineering (GFE) and Geomatics course (CEE -1125) for environmental engineering program students are excepted from this regulation.
  • It is not possible to take Level 4 (CEE CEE

Comprehensive Training

  • Uniandino Basic Cycle courses (CBU): 

The Department offers the following Type A courses (CBU):

CEE 1200A Great Projects in Mankind History

And the following Type B CBU: throughout the academic program, Uniandino students must take three Type A courses in each of the areas (Arts and Humanities, Science and Technology, Social Studies) and three Type B courses.

CEE 1500B Urban Transport: History, Environment, Energy and City (Type E Course)
CEE 1111B Water and Environment

Elective Courses (CLE): 

  • There are two courses of three (3) credits that can be chosen freely from the courses general offer of all academic programs in the University (from any faculty or department) as long as the student meets the academic prerequisites required in the course. Elective courses may belong to the same program or to different academic programs. These two subjects can be used to complete an option requirements, accommodate dual program credits, take diverse subject or to be involved into extracurricular areas.
