Working alongside architects, architectural engineers make essential plans and designs to create buildings that function as ideal spaces to live, work, and play.
As a students in the architectural engineering concentration, you will gain specialized skills and knowledge enabling you to design and create engineered systems like the structure, lighting, and ventilation of a building. In your senior year, you will complete a capstone design project that ties together all skills learned in the program. Recently, for example, students designed a standalone outdoor lighting system and rainwater harvesting structure for Project Home, a Philadelphia-based philanthropy providing outreach, support, and services to the homeless.
This concentration coupled with the core engineering education requirements of the B.S.E in Engineering provides a broad education with unique focus that enables graduates to participate in the architectural engineering field as well as broader engineering practice.
