Engineering - Architectural

Architectural engineers focus on construction materials and design of the systems that provide heat, light and water to buildings created for human or other use. Training usually takes 5 years through an accredited program. Keep reading for more info about an education and career in architectural engineering.

Inside Architectural Engineering

Architectural engineers use their expertise in design, physics, math, engineering and construction to help bring architects' designs to life. They develop structural systems for buildings, such as lighting, heating/AC and plumbing, that are functional, aesthetic and in accordance with building codes. Training is typically through 5-year undergraduate degree programs; graduates also have the option to become licensed as a professional engineer. Those entering the architectural engineering field should encounter good job prospects in this growing profession.

Education Information

Undergraduate degree programs in architectural engineering prepare students to become professional engineers. In a 5-year Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering program, students learn general engineering principles before learning to design engineering systems for buildings, such as lighting, heating, air conditioning and electrical systems.
