The difference between being an architect and an engineer is bridged by architectural engineering. This degree will hone your integrative design abilities and motivate you to construct structures that are useful, efficient, attractive, exciting, and have a low impact on the environment if engineering and environmentally friendly design are your interests.
You will take a first year course that is designed to provide you a general introduction to engineering and its various subfields. The common first year gives you solid foundational knowledge in mechanics, materials, fluids, statistics, physics, chemistry, computing, engineering science, and communication. Your attention will shift to architectural engineering in your second year, where you will study net zero energy, low environmental impact structures that use renewable energy. Integrative and collaborative design studies, construction technology, architectural engineering history and philosophy, project and practice management, environmental and cultural studies are among the study fields.
This degree includes a 12-week practical industry placement, and by taking part in our Professional Options Program, you may also be qualified to get credit for prior relevant job experience, whether it was obtained domestically or abroad.
