Division of Architectural Engineering

About the division

The Architectural Engineering division is concerned with research and education in the analysis, design, construction, and operation of engineering systems for residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities. The Architectural Engineering division focuses on an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to achieve optimal building designs and pays special attention to the relationships between design solutions and the indoor as well as the surrounding environment. This implies integration of architectural design with engineering systems like lighting, acoustics, fire protection, plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, structural systems, communications and control, as well as close cooperation with other key players in all areas of the building process.
