Architectural engineering is a challenging career field that requires a strong grasp of calculus, geometry and physics. However, the field of architectural engineering isn’t all just numbers and computations; students also usually must learn about art, design, history and the humanities, subjects that help them understand architecture on a broad basis and facilitate communication with other professionals, including lead architects.

Graduates of bachelor’s degree programs in architectural engineering are prepared to enter a wide variety of fast-growing fields related to construction, design and planning. Those with a degree in architectural engineering may work as architectural engineers, engineering technicians and construction managers.
