Master of Science Architectural Engineering Integrated Baccalaureate-Master's Level Program


Architectural engineers are multi-talented – not only do they understand the principles of architecture and design; they use their specialized engineering skills to build structures that can stand the test of time. If you work in this field, you will analyze the site, exposure, and building orientation; design heating, cooling, lighting, and power distribution systems; ensure fire protection; and design the structural elements of a building. In other words, you will become an indispensable member of a team dedicated to following rigorous design standards.


The Master of Science in Architectural Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission(s) of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Architectural Engineering Program Criteria.
