Minor in Architectural Engineering

The Minor in Architectural Engineering provides an interdisciplinary overview of engineering topics associated with building design and the study and practice of engineering. The Minor consists of technically challenging courses that rely on a series of prerequisites, as well as experiment-based and skill-development courses that can be taken without prerequisites.
