Offered Programs:

Undergraduate Program

The four years degree programme in B.Sc. Architectural engineering emphasizes the scientific and engineering aspects of management and construction of buildings. It is focused to produce professional engineers specializing in analysis, construction and operation of engineering sub-systems for building and facilities. These include structural, electrical and lighting, acoustical, plumbing, fire protection, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems and other mechanical services.  

 The goal of the programme is to provide an education in fundamentals of engineering and their application, which will help give each graduate the ability to practice as registered professional engineer in a variety of areas, both public and private, related to the planning, construction and operation of buildings.

 The Architectural Engineering programme is designed for students who are particularly interested in the engineering aspects of building design. The educational objective of the five-year architectural engineering programme is to prepare the student with fundamental engineering competence in the analysis and design of buildings and their systems. Specifically, the student must be able to understand and apply engineering fundamentals and design principles for engineering the infrastructure of architecture – that infrastructure being structural, mechanical, and electrical building systems and all the sub-disciplines related to these primary designations.

 As important members of building design teams, they must be able to create engineering designs that will fulfill the economic, safety, stability, strength and aesthetic requirements of a project.

 Included in the academic programme are exercises in many of the basic courses beginning in the first year and continuing through the fifth year to develop skills in the engineering design process. The last course in this sequence is a comprehensive Architectural Engineering Project, a culmination of all the previous design experiences from the first four and one-half years of the curriculum. Thus Architectural Engineers must have a working ability with total building and system design concepts.
