What is a Bachelor of Engineering (Architectural)?
The Bachelor of Engineering (Architectural) is a program for students who are interested in contributing to the structural design and the design and constructability of essential services in buildings. In addition, engineers who have been awarded a BEng (Architectural) are often employed as project and construction managers.
The engineer and the architect
The role of an engineer with a BEng (Architectural) qualification meshes with the role of the architect. But, while the architect develops a design that meets the client's requirements in terms of the function and appearance of a building, the engineer ensures that the building's necessary, often hidden, component parts are integrated into the whole.
A brief list of what engineers graduating from this program can choose to focus on in their careers will show you how diverse their roles, and their education, can be:
- structural integrity
- construction management
- project management
- green building (energy efficiency; energy conservation and energy demand management)
- intelligent buildings
- heating, ventilating and air conditioning (solar and other renewable energies; indoor air quality; thermal comfort)
- plumbing and piping
- fire protection
- building power systems
- building transportation systems
- acoustics, noise and vibration control
- building information modelling
