Architectural engineering emphasizes planning, design, construction and maintenance of buildings. While architects focus on a building’s form and function, architectural engineers focus on how the building works.
Architectural engineers bridge the gap between architecture and the traditional disciplines of civil, mechanical and electrical engineering.
The job market for architectural engineers is in line with the demand for architects and civil engineers as well as new construction forecasts, and demand for architectural engineering graduates is strong and predicted to increase by 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
