Dual Degree inCivil Engineering and Architecture

LTU

The only civil engineering program in Michigan and one of just a few in the United States that adopted and received accreditation base on the American Society of Civil Engineering’s Body of Knowledge for the 21st Century, 2nd Edition (BOK2) and Vision for 2025.

In recognition of the need for individuals with a wide-ranging set of professional skills, Lawrence Technological University offers a dual-degree program leading to both a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and a Master of Science in Architecture.

Graduates holding the dual Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Architecture degrees are eligible for professional licensure as civil engineers; they will also have completed the coursework necessary to pursue a master’s degree in architecture, the terminal degree required for licensure as an architect.

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering includes course work in construction, environmental, geotechnical, hydraulic, and structural engineering. Also addressed are professional issues such as ethics, leadership, and sustainable design. By selecting specific technical electives, you can further specialize in a particular civil engineering subdiscipline.

The Master of Science in Architecture introduces the core skills of creative problem solving and provides a collaborative learning environment in which you explore the various disciplines involved in the creative design process, including urban planning, landscape architecture, building systems, interior architecture, lighting, and applied arts.

The program culminates in a two-semester capstone course in which you undertake challenging team research projects that combine both architecture and engineering.

Lawrence Tech has successfully educated leaders in the fields of design and construction for nearly 90 years.
