Program Director: James Fuller
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree program with a major in Architectural Engineering Technology prepares students for professional careers in architecture, the design build industry, and related fields. The program stresses the application of scientific and engineering skills and knowledge combined with practical technical skills to support architecture and architectural engineering. Graduates will be employed as members of the engineering team where they assist with planning and designing of structures and buildings, testing of materials, construction and inspection of structures, model building, design estimating, and development of contracts and specifications. Students who concentrate electives in design may qualify for admission to graduate study leading to registration as a professional architect. The minor in architectural engineering technology is available to those in other majors with an interest in architectural design.

The undergraduate program in Architectural Engineering Technology (AET) teaches an understanding of how buildings are designed and created, including the evolution of a building and how to communicate design decisions along with the evaluation, selection, and application of different materials, construction techniques, and mechanical and electrical systems. Coursework in the program includes design, the history of architecture, structures, physics, and mathematics, all supported by the Educational Objectives and Expected Outcomes. The program is one of only six baccalaureate programs accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET.
