Course summary

This dual course combines the essentials of an architecture and a structural engineering degree so you could become an architect or an engineer. The course develops architectural and engineering skills in an integrated manner. Your unique understanding of both disciplines makes you highly skilled and employable. You'll be capable of appreciating competing considerations, while able to balance the professional opinion of both disciplines. Your first two years of study cover the fundamentals of each profession, including engineering maths, mechanics, geotechnics, materials, and structural design. Your initial architectural modules cover humanities and a history of architecture and the basics of architectural design. Your final two years allow you to study specialised and advanced modules that focus on structural analysis and design, alongside studio-based practical architectural design projects, project management, and environment and technology modules. You'll also develop and carry out a research project. During your third year, you'll spend a full semester doing the Integrated Design Project. The project encourages you to unleash your creativity on a grand scale by devising plans for an entire urban regeneration project based on a real site in Sheffield. You'll investigate new design methods and construction materials while developing detailed designs such as elegant bridges, sustainable and environmentally sensitive multi-storey buildings, or state-of-the-art sports venues. It'll give you invaluable project experience and a feel for the kind of issues you may encounter in your career. This course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, which includes the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers under licence from the Engineering Council. This degree is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). Validation by the Royal Institute of British Architects and prescription by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) means the course provides sufficient Architecture content to meet the Part I requirements for becoming a Registered Architect.
