Engineering Architectural Art Professional Diploma
The architectural engineering major prepares graduates for professional work in the analysis, design, construction, and operation of residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial buildings. The program develops engineers familiar with all aspects of safe and economical construction. Students study the principles of structural support and external cladding, building environmental systems, and project management and develop depth in at least one area.
The program integrates building disciplines, including coordination with architects; construction managers; civil, mechanical, and electrical engineers; and others. Students use computer-aided design tools to understand system interactions; perform analysis, design, scheduling, and cost analysis; and present their work.
