Architecture and Architectural Engineering

Architecture and Architectural Engineering

There is growing demand from industry for students who are both creative and technically literate. Our courses bring together both design and engineering, to produce engineers and architects who can design buildings by integrating the principles and practice of architecture, building physics and structural engineering.

Flexible degrees

All degree courses within the School share a common first year of six compulsory modules. These expose you to the range of programmes offered within the School and provide a firm basis on which to specialise in later years – as well as giving you the flexibility to switch between these courses.
