The plan of study in Architectural Engineering consists of 135 credit hours of course work, which include essentially the same basic requirements as other engineering programs in the areas of physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering science and social science and humanities. The program is composed of 58 credit hours as general education requirements, 71 credit hours as core requirements and 6 credit hours as electives. The student is offered two opportunities to gain practical experience during his study. He can spend 8 weeks during summer or he may choose to spend 28 weeks in a more intensive Coop program in the building industry. The student is expected to finish the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in 4 years in addition to one year spent in the Orientation Program.
To become eligible for a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architectural Engineering, a student must fulfill the following requirements:
- Cumulative and major GPAs of 2.00 or higher on a 4.00 point scale.
- Completion of the number of semester-credit-hours (Total of 135 Credit-Hours) required by the department.
