The architectural engineering program prepares students to be effective players in shaping a sustainable built environment in the UAE and beyond. Students specializing in Architectural Engineering will explore engineering design, building construction, structures, electrical and mechanical systems, and construction management. This makes architectural engineering an ideal profession for individuals with strong math and science skills who are interested in the built environment in general and buildings in particular. The program and department activities reflect an outcomes-oriented approach, adopting hands-on active learning and emphasizing professional competency and skills-building while introducing students to innovative approaches to knowledge delivery and the use of computational design tools. Teamwork is also a key part of the study of architectural engineering as architectural engineers interact with the other design professionals in the execution of building projects. The Architectural Engineering undergraduate program in the College of Engineering at the United Arab Emirates University is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
