Gain the expertise you need to integrate structural systems into architects’ plans, meeting project design, safety and environmental goals.
Our Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Architectural Engineering) covers the processes behind constructing safe buildings, with an emphasis on sustainable design. It also encompasses elements of other engineering disciplines, including mechanical, electrical and fire protection.
VU’s College of Engineering and Science follows a teaching method of problem-based learning. Our students learn to approach engineering problems independently, coming up with creative and practical solutions.
Our work placements and industry projects give you the practical experience needed to confidently begin your career. Students are required to complete 12 weeks of industry placement. You will graduate job-ready for a career providing useful, relevant engineering solutions.
There are only two accredited architectural engineering programs in Australia, so demand for our graduates is high.
Areas of study include:
- architectural history and design of buildings
- air conditioning, lighting and electrical power distribution
- water supply and distribution
- fire and life safety systems
- sustainable building systems design
- building structures and building construction technology.
