Architectural Engineering

Emphasis areas include structural engineering, construction engineering and project management, environmental systems for buildings, and construction materials.

Architectural engineers plan, design, and supervise construction of many essential facilities and structures for residential, commercial, industrial and institutional buildings. These building systems include electrical, communications and control, lighting, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, fire protection, plumbing, and structural systems. Architectural engineers are problem solvers applying the latest in high-tech equipment and sophisticated procedures to address challenges concerning our environment and infrastructure. The diversity of architectural engineers complements the use of multiple systems to the intent and purpose of the project’s design.

The bachelor of science in architectural engineering (BSAE) degree requires satisfactory completion of 129 credit hours. In your first two years, you will complete mathematics, physics, English, architectural design and other prerequisite courses. In your third and fourth years, most of your course work will be in engineering sciences. Also in your fourth year you will complete engineering design courses in general and specific areas.

Courses in structural, electrical, mechanical and lighting design are directed toward providing reliable and efficient structures such as stadiums, retail complexes, office buildings and airports. Courses in construction engineering include studies in construction techniques, cost estimating, quality control/quality assurance, and contract administration. History, architectural design and humanities provide the necessary tools to appreciably coexist in the fabric of society.

Architectural engineering is a broad field of endeavor. Because of this breadth, courses are required in each of the above areas. Although you, as an architectural engineer, may specialize within a given area, by the very nature of the profession you will be required to interact with specialists in the other areas. You will find that you will be working with architects and engineers in the other disciplines in the planning, design, and construction of complex facilities.

Architectural engineers also must be effective in communicating with the public. You may be expected to work with property owners, concerned citizens, city officials, attorneys, and even medical doctors for concerns related to public health measures. The results of your work as a architectural engineer will be seen everywhere. Projects in which you will become involved must be economical, appreciable to self and community, and provide a reasonable life expectancy. Use of computer hardware and software is a key component of the BSAE program of study.

Architectural Engineering
Bachelor of Science

Entering freshmen desiring to study Architectural Engineering will be admitted to the Foundational Engineering and Computing Program. They will however, be permitted, if they wish, to state an Architectural Engineering preference, which will be used as a consideration for available freshman departmental scholarships. The focus of the Foundational Engineering and Computing Program is on enhanced advising and career counseling, with the goal of providing to the student the information necessary to make an informed decision regarding the choice of a major.

For the Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Engineering, a minimum of 129 credit hours is required. These requirements are in addition to credit received for algebra, trigonometry, and basic ROTC courses. An average of at least two grade points per credit hour must be attained. An average of at least two grade points per credit hour must also be maintained in all courses taken in Architectural Engineering.

Each student's program of study must contain a minimum of 21 credit hours of course work in general education and must be chosen according to the following rules:

  1. All students are required to take one American history course, one economics course, one humanities course, and ENGLISH 1120. The history course is to be selected from HISTORY 1200 (preferred), HISTORY 1300, or HISTORY 1310. The economics course may be either ECON 1100 or ECON 1200. ART 3203 is required.
  2. Depth requirement.Three credit hours must be taken in humanities or social sciences at the 2000-level or above. This will be satisfied by taking the required HISTORY 2510 and HISTORY 4550. All courses taken to satisfy the depth requirement must be taken after graduating from high school.
  3. The Gen Ed course chosen must meet requirements as specified under "Engineering Degree Requirements" published in the current undergraduate catalog and may include one communications course in addition to ENGLISH 1120.
  4. Special topics and special problems and honors seminars are allowed only by petition to and approval by the student's department chair.

The Architectural Engineering program at Missouri S&T is characterized by its focus on the scientific basics of engineering and its innovative application; indeed, the underlying theme of this educational program is the application of the scientific basics to engineering practice through attention to problems and needs of the public. The necessary interrelations among the various topics, the engineering disciplines, and the other professions as they naturally come together in the solution of real world problems are emphasized as research, analysis, synthesis, and design, and are presented and discussed through classroom and laboratory instruction.
