Architectural Engineering

**Successful architectural design is the sweet spot within science, creativity and technology. As virtual technologies push design boundaries in our built environment, a BSc (Hons) Architectural Engineering degree with Salford can lead to an exciting career shaping sustainable and spectacular buildings.** Architectural engineers are at the heart of every successful building project team. With their ability to integrate building systems in complex design environments, they are highly-sought by architectural, planning consultancies, and developers. If you’re fascinated by the science and technology behind buildings, our three-year architectural engineering course provides robust design, engineering and construction knowledge, so you can build an exceptional skill set. Salford is a leading centre for architecture - we’re consistently ranked in the World Top 100 universities (QS 2018) for Architecture and Built Environment study. Learning takes place in our Peel Park campus, minutes from buzzing Manchester, recently voted the UK’s most liveable city.* You’ll study architectural theory and practice alongside other architecture students, delivered in a collaborative studio environment by leading international teachers and experts. By combining architecture and engineering disciplines, you’ll build a comprehensive view of the building design process from day one. You’ll develop both design awareness and a solid understanding of the systems integral to sustainable design. You’ll learn structural principles alongside exploring architecture theory. You’ll balance the tools and technologies for developing engineering solutions with the creative processes for generating new ideas. Reflecting real-world practice, you’ll complete multidisciplinary projects and innovative problem-solving activities alongside other built environment students. Through our strong connections with local architectural practices and engineering firms, you’ll receive external critiques and guest lectures. With a focus on your future, you’ll share your ideas at our annual architecture show and build your network at our exclusive built environment careers fair. **Features** - Develop critical awareness and detailed appreciation of architectural design, with the ability to design solutions for new and existing structures - Gain an understanding of fabrication, contemporary construction and 3-D conceptions, developing competence in digital construction and BIM - Apply modelling and analysis to explore interactions between a building and its internal and external environments - Study the relationships between shape, material, performance, load, and construction - Explore the role of nature, people and technology in design, and the environmental dimensions that influence the building design process - Build core skills required by a built environment professional, including team working, critical analysis, problem solving and project management *The Economist’s Global Liveability Index 2018
