Options for Engineering with Architecture

“I believe that good architecture is teamwork, but not the work of an architect-only team.”
Renzo Piano

We are very proud of our unique and innovative courses that span between the disciplines of Engineering and Architecture providing students with the skills to design and engineer buildings. These courses have recently been honoured by the Royal Academy of Engineering who have awarded us the title of a "Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design".

We run two undergraduate Masters programmes that span the two departments: Structural Engineering and Architecture and Architectural Engineering.

Career Options

The two degree programmes provide you with the skills to work in teams to produce great architecture. However, the two programmes differ in the roles they will train you for, as shown below.

Engineering with Architecture Options

Architectural Engineering covers all the engineering disciplines associated with buildings and their infrastructure, alongside an appreciation of architecture. The combination of these skills will enable you develop a career engineering high quality buildings so they have a minimal impact on the environment.

Structural Engineering and Architecture focuses particularly on integrating these two disciplines with an awareness of environmental building design. This allows you to follow a career as either a Structural Engineer or an Architect.

Professional Accreditation

MEng Architectural Engineering 

The course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, which includes the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers under licence from the Engineering Council. This degree is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). See www.jbm.org.uk for further information. The course is also accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

Please note, Architectural Engineering Design HK2D is primarily an engineering course and does not lead to qualification as an Architect.

MEng Structural Engineering and Architecture

This course is accredited by the Joint Board of Moderators, which includes the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Structural Engineers, Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation and the Institute of Highway Engineers under licence from the Engineering Council. This degree is accredited as fully satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). See www.jbm.org.uk for further information.

Accreditation by the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Institutions of Civil and Structural Engineers means the course provides sufficient Architecture content to meet the Part I requirements for becoming a Registered Architect and also the MEng requirements to progress to Chartered Engineer without further educational qualifications.
