Architectural Engineering

Houses, roads, drains and other infrastructure.

Architectural engineering is a broad discipline that includes all methods in building design and construction. Architecture is the design of buildings and artificial structures with a large emphasis on aesthetics. Architectural engineering combines building design and aesthetics with a focus on functionality. This discipline is a mix of many other disciplines and varies depending on the country. All architectural engineers have structural knowledge and as well as the creativity that architects are known for. Graduates may specialise in any area of commercial building design such as heating, ventilation, fire protection, electrical or acoustics. Supervision of the construction process is a fundamental skill obtained in this discipline.

Professional accreditation is required in most countries due to the specialised skill set and liability that architectural engineers are faced with.
