The creation of buildings is a complex operation that requires the skills of many disciplines. This course brings together the precision of engineering with the creativity of building design, with an emphasis on environmental factors.
Our MEng Architectural Engineering degree aims to provide you with an in-depth understanding of civil engineering with a specific focus on structural engineering and an appreciation of architecture and building services.
You will develop a thorough understanding of theory, backed up by practical application through laboratory and research work, field trips and design classes, preparing you for a successful career in the civil engineering industry. Your optional modules can be selected from those with an architectural theme.
An added advantage of this MEng Architectural Engineering (International) course is that one semester is spent studying engineering through the medium of English in a partner university overseas. They include universities in countries such as France, Germany, Italy, the USA, Australia, Canada and more.
The four-year MEng degree allows you to use the last two years of study to expand and strengthen your knowledge in architectural engineering. You will benefit from advanced learning in design and management and an appreciation of the techniques needed to manage and organise a multidisciplinary engineering design project.
Other architectural engineering courses include:
- A thorough grounding in the fundamentals of architectural engineering if you choose a BEng course.
- The opportunity to follow a sandwich year in industry if you choose the relevant four-year BEng or five-year MEng degree option.
- The opportunity to study a language if you choose the relevant MEng degree option with a sandwich year at a university in France, Germany or Spain.
