The Department

The Department of Architectural Engineering and Construction Science and Management offers courses of study leading to the master of science degree. The undergraduate degree is ABET accreditation (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc.).

The department consists of 16 full-time faculty members.  A master of science degree in architectural engineering with specialization in structural engineering, lighting/electrical, and heating and air conditioning for buildings. The research interests of the staff cover major areas of modern building systems design: seismic analysis of buildings, slender wall design, vibration analysis, lighting/electrical, heating and air conditioning, plumbing, cold-formed steel design, green building design, energy analysis, energy auditing, acceptance testing, and indoor air quality. Several faculty members direct research and utilize this research in the enhancement of both graduate and undergraduate teaching. The objective of the program is to provide advanced studies in engineering, analysis and design of all the disciplines in building systems. The department has excellent facilities and access to the most recent computer software technology.
