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.


Our MEng, BEng Architectural Engineering programme is accredited to CEng level by the Joint Board of Moderators (The Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE)Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE)The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation (CIHT) and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE)) and is also EUR-ACE labelled.

Our MEng, BEng Architecture programme is the first and only UK course which gives professional accreditation in Architecture, Civil & Structural Engineering and Building Services Engineering. It is accredited to CEng level by the JBM and CIBSE, and is Prescribed to Part 1 by the ARB. In addition, we are now a RIBA Part 1 Candidate Course. So, uniquely, our graduates get three professional qualifications in one four-year course.
