BEng/MEng Architectural Engineering
New for 2020, our BEng and MEng Architectural Engineering degrees have been developed to draw on our existing expertise in energy and environmental engineering.
These courses, designed for students with competence in Maths, combine the creativity of architectural and building design with a strong technical overview of energy systems and environmental engineering. We are engaging with the Chartered Institution of Building Service Engineers (CIBSE) and Energy Institute (EI) to work towards accreditation of the courses.
Students will benefit from the interdisciplinary teaching and research within the School of the Built Environment. We’re working together to develop the knowledge needed to realise more sustainable built environments that can contribute positively towards tackling the challenges and complexities of climate change.
Architectural Engineering students will also benefit from the School’s established links with industry. They will be well-placed to form personal and professional networks during their studies and enter the workforce in a wide range of roles such as energy engineer, building designer, facility manager/engineer, project manager, and construction manager.
