Enjoy Planning, Designing, or Constructing Buildings?

aeArchitectural Engineering is the profession that offers an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to the:

  • planning,
  • design,
  • construction, and
  • operation of buildings.

Architectural engineers have the primary responsibility for the design of:

  • structural,
  • heating,
  • cooling,
  • electrical,
  • lighting, and
  • fire protection systems

for all building types, but may also design systems for:

  • acoustical,
  • communications,
  • water and waste water,
  • vibration, and
  • site plan analysis and orientation.


Architectural engineers use their knowledge of mathematics and science and analytical skills as professional engineers to design “green” buildings that encourage sustainability and energy efficiency. Architectural engineers partner with architects to design modern state-of-the-art buildings to serve the needs of society.



Graduates of architectural engineering programs may chose a career path with consulting engineering design firms, construction companies, local, state, or federal governments, facilities management, or enroll in graduate programs in engineering or architecture.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology [EAC/ABET].
