Architectural Engineering and Design Minor
The Minor in Architectural Engineering and Design trains students in the fundamental principles and practice of architectural and engineering design. Students completing this program will learn architectural conceptualization, programming, and design implementation in conjunction with analysis of the engineering materials and systems used in the construction of buildings and other structures. A key element of the program is aesthetic skills, which will be honed through the creative iterations of design. Students completing this program will be uniquely prepared for advanced study in either architecture or engineering, and regardless of their ultimate career track, will be prepared as leaders of the building design profession.
