Learn about integrated approaches in the design, management and operation of efficient buildings in an urban context. Develop the skills and knowledge to deliver engineering solutions to current and future problems facing the built environment.
Through our Architectural Engineering courses, you will combine the creativity of architectural and building design with a strong technical overview of energy systems and environmental engineering. This will enable you to develop the wide range of skills necessary to thrive in a sector which increasingly demands that you work across disciplines.
Our close relationships with industry and professional institutions will give you the opportunity to build a valuable network of contacts during your studies. You can also gain insight into industry by carrying out a paid industrial placement year, or a summer placement, before your final year of study.
Teaching and facilities
We teach the very best of current practice, drawing on a multidisciplinary team of experts with renowned research excellence and extensive experience working with industry.
You will have access to an array of digital technology and software, including building information modelling (BIM), building energy and urban microclimate simulations, and 3D laser scanning. We also offer an immersive virtual reality “CAVE” that enables you to interact with 3D digitised environments.
