Architectural Engineering


"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 or a government agency or laboratory.
  2. Use the Architectural Engineering Degree as a basis for graduate education and/or continuing education which would lead to a career and lifelong learning 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 civic responsibility and engineering ethics through participation in civic or charitable groups.

Student Learning Outcomes

Currently, we use the outcomes which are the standard ABET Engineering Accreditation Commission required outcomes for engineering programs:

  1. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics;
  2. an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors;
  3. an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences;
  4. an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts;
  5. an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives;
  6. an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions;
  7. an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
