WELCOME To The Major of ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING

OVERVIEW

Architecture has exceptionally broad applications to nearly everything in human life including the buildings that we occupy, the towns and urban spaces that we live.  It is certainly one of the core disciplines in any economy that continues to grow and advance. Architectural Engineering program provides high quality education aligned with national and international standards and provides a strong base in architectural engineering discipline for the next generation of architectural engineers. The program equips its graduates with an excellent foundation in architecture as well as engineering fundamentals, with strong exposure to current technologies and their implementation for building design and construction. The Program offers 4 tracks: General, Construction, Lighting/ Electrical & Mechanical. 

MISSION

The mission of the Architectural Engineering Department is to provide a leading national and international studio-based program in the art and science of architecture that is responsive to the most important social, environmental, technological, and cultural challenges of the twenty-first century Consistent with Vision 2030, and to achieve excellence in teaching, research, design, outreach, advising, and service to society. 

OBJECTIVES

The Educational Objectives of the Architectural Engineering program describe the expected accomplishments of graduates during the first few years following their graduation from the program. The graduates will have the knowledge and skills needed to:  

  • Adopt and continuously practice life-long learning through post-graduate and professional education.
  • Actively contribute to the advancement of architecture practice in the public or private sectors in the technical areas of mechanical, construction, electrical/lighting; and  
  • Become professional architects who apply ethical and social aspects in the design and construction of solutions to Architectural engineering problems in the built environment.  

Curriculum and Plan

PREPARATION PROGRAM

UBT’s Preparatory Program consists of non-credit courses specifically designed to improve student's proficiency in English before they undertake undergraduate study to develop and improve their knowledge of mathematical and analytic techniques through the English Language medium of instruction. The program also familiarizes students with various majors available at the college, the requirements of undergraduate study, study skills and discipline in all forms.

The program is comprised of the following courses:

  • Six English language Levels at the English Language Academy (ELA)
  • Pre-Calculus (depending on the placement test)

ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING PLAN

It is highly important to follow the program plan during its different semesters as it was designed to prepare students in each stage to totally benefit from the following one. It is crucial for each student to meet his/ her academic advisor and follow the study plan of his/her major closely. This would typically include taking the lower level courses in the first and second year, getting as much general education as possible, and then moving on to take major courses and possibly some minor courses. This is a very carefully structured process that students should closely adhere to.
