Course summary

Architectural engineering brings to life the high performance buildings of the future, addressing our growing need for more sustainable, climate change resilient, energy efficient and smart places to live, work and spend time. The next generation of architectural engineers will bring together a range of skills, disciplines and technologies and apply them in new and exciting ways. From harnessing the power of renewables and managing energy use more efficiently, to designing for re-use and using technology to enhance lighting, acoustics and comfort within a building. Studying architectural engineering at Leeds will put you at the forefront of new and emerging technologies and approaches to both building structures and the systems within them. You’ll learn how to get results from a multi-disciplinary approach, collaborate with professionals, and play an important role in building a sustainable future for everyone. Our degree programmes develop world-class engineers who contribute actively to sustainable and economic growth whilst setting and maintaining the highest ethical standards, embracing diversity and inclusion and delivering the infrastructure we all rely on in everyday life. That’s one of the reasons why our courses are accredited by several leading professional bodies and are shaped by our world-leading research. This is a practical course, so in addition to design studio space, you’ll also have access to extensive library facilities, industry standard software, and impressive laboratories with specialist facilities for structures, materials, public health engineering, building services and geotechnics – everything you need to begin your career as an architectural engineer.
