Architectural engineering is the application of engineering principles and technology to building design and construction. Architectural engineers work together with architects and civil engineers, but are unique in both their skills and role as part of the building design team.
The BS in Architectural Engineering (ARE) degree program, beginning in 2019, provides students with breadth and depth in the engineering sciences of buildings and their systems:
- structural systems
- heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems
- electrical and lighting systems
- construction engineering and management
The program emphasizes integration across architectural engineering disciplines as well as with the existing civil engineering and construction engineering management programs.
