Program Objectives

In consultation with the Architectural Engineering Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) consisting of Alumni, employers, and current faculty, following are the program educational objectives (PEO's) for the Architectural Engineering program, as approved during the December 12, 2013 IAB meeting (4-0-0):

  1. Acquire and articulate through written, visual and oral communication skills, the integration of building design and aesthetics with the knowledge to design mechanical, electrical and structural systems for the built environment.
  2. Employ problem solving skills and awareness of emerging green technologies to create a culture for the collaborative design process, building systems integration and constructability, with leadership in energy efficiency, to support the worldwide need for skilled building designers and detailers.
  3. Lead design and construction teams in the process and development of conceptual designs, design drawings, construction drawings and specifications and construction contract administration for building sustainability in a global market.

Student Outcomes

Industry leaders have high expectations for graduating architectural engineering students. The Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge 3 Task Committee (CEBOK3TC), sponsored by the committee of education under the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), created the Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge, Third Edition (CEBOK3). The Master of Science in Architectural Engineering program adopted CEBOK3 outlined below as the basis for its student outcomes.

Foundational Outcomes

  1. Mathematics: Select appropriate concepts and principles of mathematics to solve architectural engineering problems.
  2. Natural Sciences: Apply concepts and principles of chemistry, calculus-based physics, and at least one other area of the natural sciences, to solve architectural engineering problems.
  3. Social Sciences: Apply concepts and principles of social sciences relevant to architectural engineering.
  4. Humanities: Apply aspects of the humanities to the solution of architectural engineering problems.

Engineering Fundamentals Outcomes

  1. Materials Science: Apply concepts and principles of materials science to solve architectural engineering problems.
  2. Engineering Mechanics: Select appropriate concepts and principles of solid and/or fluid mechanics to solve architectural engineering problems.
  3. Experiment Methods and Data Analysis: Select appropriate experiments and analyze the results in the solution of architectural engineering problems.
  4. Critical Thinking and Problem Solving: Develop a set of appropriate solutions to a complex problem, question, or issue relevant to architectural engineering.

Technical Outcomes

  1. Project Management: Analyze components of a project management plan for a complex architectural engineering project.
  2. Engineering Economics: Apply concepts and principles of engineering economics in the practice of architectural engineering.
  3. Risk and Uncertainty: Apply concepts and principles of probability and statistics to determine risk relevant to architectural engineering.
  4. Breadth in Architectural Engineering Areas: Integrate solutions to complex problems that involve multiple specialty areas appropriate to the practice of architectural engineering.
  5. Design: Develop an appropriate design alternative for a complex architectural engineering project that considers realistic requirements and constraints.
  6. Depth in an Architectural Engineering Area: Assess advanced concepts and principles in the solutions of complex problems to develop a mastery in a specialty area of architectural engineering.
  7. Sustainability: Apply concepts and principles of sustainability to the solution of complex architectural engineering problems.

Professional Outcomes

  1. Communication: Integrate different forms of effective and persuasive communication to technical and nontechnical audiences.
  2. Teamwork and Leadership: Apply concepts and principles of teamwork and leadership, including diversity and inclusion, in the solutions of architectural engineering problems.
  3. Lifelong Learning: Integrate new knowledge, skills, and attitudes acquired through self-directed learning into the practice of architectural engineering.
  4. Professional Attitudes: Explain professional attitudes relevant to the practice of architectural engineering, including creativity, curiosity, flexibility, and dependability.
  5. Professional Responsibilities: Apply professional responsibilities relevant to the practice of architectural engineering, including safety, legal issues, licensure, credentialing, and innovation.
  6. Ethical Responsibilities: Apply appropriate reasoning to an ethical dilemma.
