Asia Campus

Welcome to the University of Utah's Asia Campus (UAC) information page for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The UAC is located in Incheon, South Korea, at the International Global Campus (IGC). The CvEEN Department is proud to be one of the seven academic programs students can attend while studying in Korea. Learn more about UAC degrees here. 

For more information, see below and meet with an Academic Advisor.

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Utah has one of the nation's most rapidly growing departments and faculty. "U" engineers are trained in professional communications, project management, and their technical discipline with opportunities to seek advanced degrees in engineering, law, business, or medicine. The department and local industry offer paid internships, scholarships and employment opportunities to more than 80% of CvEEN students.

The Cost to Attend the UAC is the same as Attending The University of Utah

UAC tuition schedule is based on full-time enrollment (12 – 17 credit hours in both Fall and Spring semesters).  Students who elect to enroll in more than 17 credit hours during the Fall or Spring semester will be charged an additional $700 per credit hour above 17 credit hours without exception.  Student who enroll in less than 12 credits per semester will be charged $900 per credit hour.

**** Salt Lake City campus students will pay the current in-state rate while at the U of U Asia Campus (UAC). Out-of-state students will be charged the in-state rate for up to two semesters at the UAC. Also, if a student’s merit scholarship does not transfer, the UAC will apply an equal scholarship to their account.

Fees associated with student loan borrowing have been accounted for in the total budget for both Residents and Non-residents. Loan fees will vary.

Please keep in mind that your individual program or coursework may have additional fees associated.

As mentioned, the Cost of Attendance is based on estimated figures, and as such, it may not accurately reflect an individual student’s costs.  For this reason, a student may appeal, or request an adjustment to the COA for one of the following reasons:

  • A computer purchase for educational purposes, one time increase
  • Child Care expenses incurred while the student and/ or spouse are at school or work
  • Unusual Medical/Dental expenses, not covered by insurance and not itemized on tax returns
  • Approved University of Utah study abroad programs
  • Costs related to a disability
  • Additional required program fees and expenses


The following is a suggested four-year schedule for a BS in Civil Engineering. Taking these courses in the years shown will ensure that you have the prerequisites for the following year’s courses. All students take the same engineering courses during their freshman, sophomore, and part of their junior years. Students then select different technical electives to take during their junior and senior year.
