Overview

The first three years are common to all three fields of specialization and include the math and science courses common to all engineering programs. 

Students take an introductory course in AE in their first semester where the students learn about the materials and systems that comprise a building, visit a construction site, and interact with their industry mentors. It provides a preview of the work they can expect to perform after graduation. This introductory course helps the student to decide if AE is the career path he/she wishes to pursue. 

The Architectural Engineering (Omaha) program, at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, is part of The Charles W. Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction under the UNL College of Engineering.

Career Opportunities

  • Architectural engineering graduates normally enter the building design industry and become registered professional engineers. 
  • There are about 20 accredited architectural engineering programs in the country, so there is a large unfulfilled demand for engineers educated in building design. 
  • In Nebraska, the home of several large architectural and engineering design firms, this is especially true.
