Our new Architectural Engineering degree combines the art of design with the construction of buildings. The programme is designed to produce tomorrow’s engineers, able to work in multidisciplinary teams to design, construct, maintain and operate our infrastructure utilising the latest technological tools and techniques. The programme embraces the Conceiving-Designing-Implementing-Operating (CDIO) educational framework for producing the next generation of “work-ready” engineers. This will provide a learning experience that stresses the engineering fundamentals set within the context of CDIO real-world systems and products. Studying Architectural Engineering will empower you as a graduate engineer to liaise and communicate effectively and efficiently with Architects to ensure both functional and aesthetic design. You will gain a solid technical ground in structural engineering, and appreciation and understanding of contemporary global architectural design. UN Sustainable Development Goals are embedded throughout the programme and practiced in the design projects to achieve a sustainable and resilient built environment. The programme will give you the educational base to work at the intersection of structural engineering and architecture, and to successfully gain chartered engineering status after graduation. A sandwich placement year, taken in year three of the programme, enables you to develop your skills and professional confidence - and boosts your employability on graduation. While studying with us you will: -Learn in dedicated design studios that are fully equipped with the latest equipment and technology -Be taught by research active staff and industry-experienced tutors – our tutors have extensive track records of project design and delivery -Develop programming skills and use artificial intelligence to inform the design of complex structures -Work on authentic projects which are varied in terms of complexity, context, scale, and material use Placement The placement year is an excellent way to develop your professional experience, build industry contacts, and gain insight into the day-to-day work of a professional engineer.
