Welcome to Architectural Engineering
This program was designed to produce engineers technically skilled in the whole scope of building design, construction, assessment, repair and refurbishment with an emphasis on communication, collaboration and design. This studio-based program will provide students with both the technical knowledge, as well as the design skills necessary to become industry leaders.
This design-driven, co-op program will be one-of-a-kind in North America. Through the program's studio focus, and exposure to open-ended design problems, students will engage in hands-on experience, coupled with peer learning. During their third year, Architectural Engineering students will directly collaborate with Architecture students and spend two academic terms at the School of Architecture in Cambridge.

“Design Days” is a unique two-day event held during Orientation Week, for new Architectural Engineering students. Students are given the opportunity to solve a challenging, open-ended problem by brainstorming, designing and constructing a solution in collaboration with their new classmates. The aim of the event is to engage students in “design from Day 1”, and create an experiential learning environment where students are given the freedom to explore creative ideas whilst also drawing on the resources of experienced faculty, staff, technicians and upper-year students, for guidance.
