Architectural Engineering is an program offered by the University of Texas at Arlington that prepares engineers to design buildings through structural analysis and design by using different construction materials. An Architectural Engineer is an integral part of a comprehensive Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) team.


Architectural Engineers work for engineering firms, construction companies or architecture firms to apply engineering to the analysis, design, and construction of buildings. 

They are specially trained to effectively communicate with both engineers and architects and their project roles include structural engineer, construction management, building information modeling, project management, façade design and more.

Architectural engineering graduates are prepared for advanced graduate degrees and a wide range of career paths with AEC firms in industry, consulting firms, and governmental agencies.

The Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering degree program at The University of Texas at Arlington is designed to provide a strong foundation in science, mathematics, and engineering science; technical competence in the structural engineering area of civil engineering; and an understanding of the importance of ethics, safety, professionalism, and socioeconomic concerns in resolving technical problems through synthesis, planning, and design. Elements of design are introduced at the freshman level. This is followed by an analysis and design component in professional program courses, culminating in a comprehensive design experience.
