Architectural Engineering

Mission:

"The mission of the undergraduate architectural engineering program is to provide our students comprehensive academic and cooperative work experiences that will form the foundation for lifelong achievement."

Program Educational Objectives:

Within a few years of graduation, students holding a baccalaureate degree in Architectural Engineering from the University of Cincinnati should attain one or more of the following objectives:

  1. Begin a successful career as an Architectural Engineer in a design/consulting firm, a construction firm or a government agency or laboratory.
  2. Use the Architectural Engineering Degree as a basis for continuing education which would lead to a career in architecture, medicine, business, education, law, science or another discipline of engineering.
  3. Use the Architectural Engineering Degree as a basis for scholarly, research and development, and/or entrepreneurial endeavors.
  4. Demonstrate competency in engineering through licensure, promotions and/or positions of increasing responsibility.
  5. Demonstrate a commitment to lifelong learning through graduate education and/or continuing education.
  6. Demonstrate a commitment to civic responsibility and engineering ethics through participation in civic or charitable groups.
