What do Architectural Engineers do?
Architectural engineering emphasizes the scientific and engineering aspects of planning, designing, constructing, and analyzing buildings.
While architects work to incorporate aesthetic and layout concerns into a building design, architectural engineers focus on the structure, stability, and systems of a building.
Architectural engineers plan, design, and analyze:
- Building sustainability and safety aspects
- Construction management
- Heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems
- Plumbing and fire protection systems
- Lighting and electrical systems
- Structural systems
Architectural engineers impact lives through building design, application, and function.
