Architectural Engineering is a branch of engineering with a multi-disciplinary approach that deals with the technological aspects of planning, design, construction and operation of buildings. It is regarded as the art and science of engineering and construction and is distinguished from Architecture, which is regarded as an art of design, with respect to building structures. Even though it is a relatively new professional field that emerged in the 20th century , Architectural Engineering is deep-seated as a result of thousands of years of scientific advancements and innovations in the fields of Architecture and Construction.
Architectural Engineers are at the forefront to address some of the major challenges of the 21st century such as reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to construction of resilient and sustainable structures. It has become a distinctly important profession today, since our world is underway through two major technological revolutions, (1) that of rapidly advancing computer-technology, and (2) the parallel revolution resulting from the need to create a sustainable planet.
If you find yourself interested in architecture and construction technology and want to develop your career in an innovative field, Bachelor’s in Architectural Engineering can be a worthy consideration as Architectural Engineers will be in high demand with an ever increasing need for sustainable structure and eco-friendly process.
Students will come across a wide range of courses, right from designing to construction technology and will have to complete the courses to earn an Architectural Engineering degree. Below is the list of core courses in Bachelor’s of Architectural Engineering:
