About Architecture Engineering

"Architectural Engineering" (AE) is a multifaceted discipline exploring how the design, construction and operation of a building come together. It focuses on many areas; lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation, sustainability, electrical systems, mechanical systems, fire protection …etc. Therefore, architectural engineering combines the principles of design and engineering to create usable buildings. Like all engineers, architectural engineers apply math and science to problem solving. They often work on-site with a team of other engineers, architects and construction workers. Thus, architectural engineers encompass a number of disciplines of engineering including civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering as part of their day-to-day role.

Program Objectives

AN ABILITY TO INCORPORATE PRACTICE-BASED AND INFORMATION-BASED KNOWLEDGE OF CONTEMPORARY SOCIETAL ISSUES AND ETHICAL AND PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES AS PART OF ENGINEERING SOLUTIONS AND BUSINESS ACTIVITIES

An ability to identify problems and to analys critically needed information and data, to draw appropriate conclusions, and to make decisions based on those conclusions

Interpersonal and communication skills to function effectively in a diverse workplace and work confidently and effectively within intra- and interdisciplinary teams

Career Opportunities

Because of the multidisciplinary nature of the curriculum, graduates are qualified for employment in a variety of areas. They can work, for example:

  • - Designers and construction manager.

  • - Join city planning

  • - Community agencies 

  • - governmental authorities. 

  • - Alternatively.

  •  - Building contractors. In addition

  •  - some architectural engineers are self-employed.
