Architectural Design Program


The Architectural Design major seeks to integrate engineering and architecture in ways that blend innovative architectural design with cutting-edge engineering technologies.

Combining hands-on architectural design studios with a wide variety of courses, students can choose from a broad mix of elective courses concerning energy conservation, sustainability, building systems, structures, along with design foundation and fine arts courses.

In addition to preparing students for advanced studies in architecture and construction management, the program's strong math and science requirements prepare students well for graduate work in other fields such as civil and environmental engineering, law and business. The major provides a background for individuals wanting to explore a diversity of careers in architecture, engineering, construction and structures.

This undergraduate major grants a degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering with a specialization in Architectural Design. This engineering major is not an ABET-accredited engineering degree, nor is it designed to lead directly to professional licensure in architecture. To become a professional architect or engineer, additional graduate training is required.
