Bachelor of Architectural Engineering The Pennsylvania State University Penn State College of Engineering
Architectural engineers apply practical and theoretical knowledge to the engineering design of buildings and building systems. The goal is to engineer high-performance buildings that are sustainable, resilient, economically viable, that ensure the safety, health, comfort, and productivity of occupants.
Uniting scientific principles from structural, mechanical, electrical, lighting, acoustical, and construction engineering, architectural engineers apply their discipline-specific expertise to conceptualize, design, construct, operate and maintain built environments in interdisciplinary team environments.
Graduates of architectural engineering are widely considered creative systems engineers, with formal training in creativity and design through architectural design studios married with solid engineering education.
