Architectural Engineering is about sustainable building design. From reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to smart, connected, resilient homes, architectural engineers design innovative, energy efficient indoor environments of the future. There is a growing need to provide society with modern buildings that are sustainable, energy efficient and green. Architectural engineers focus on the interaction between engineering services, building design and human behaviour to design appropriate low-energy, indoor environments for buildings. Our Architectural Engineering discipline aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills required for the specification, design and management of engineering services required in the built environment, with an emphasis on sustainable solutions. The courses are supported by an Industry advisory panel involving representatives from major multi-national employers. The panel supports our courses ensuring our curriculum delivers exactly what the industry needs and that our graduates are work ready. Employment prospects for architectural engineering graduates are excellent. There are many exciting opportunities for people who want to play a professional role in helping to shape the built environment of the future.
