Studies the process of how a building is made, along with the engineering behind it
The purpose of architectural engineering is to explore engineering knowledge related to the building creation process. It is also a comprehensive study of engineering, science and art required in the design and construction of buildings. Accordingly, our educational content is closely related to real-world situations and thus composed of four main fields, focusing on the cultivation of students’ abilities to efficiently manage the building construction process within these four areas: Building Structure: The most engineering-based field to which the mechanical concept of physics is applied. This field deals with various theories for designing and constructing buildings safely and economically. It includes application mechanics, structural mechanics, reinforced concrete structures, steel structures, and computer-based structural analysis. Building Environment and Facilities: This field deals with the protection from the external environment, which is the basic function of the building. These fields include heat environment, air environment, light environment, and sound environment, all of which are based on energy problems. It also includes all buildingfacilities systems related to building performance. Construction and CM: Includes construction-related technologies and methods, construction management (CM), construction information management (BIM), etc. Building materials: This field allows students to learn the mechanical performance and characteristics of materials used in buildings as well as the various theories about building materials including the development of new materials following the trend of constructing high-rise and large-scale buildings.
Nurture professional architects with talent capable of designing, constructing, and managing safe and economical buildings.
Develop future-oriented architectural experts capable of leading the knowledge-based globalized society.
Foster creative architectural talent capable of leading the exploration and development of construction technology, which can match the advancement and enlargement of architectural works.
Career Path after Graduation
Most graduates are employed by large or medium-sized construction companies. They can also enter the construction industry, including engineering companies, supervisory companies, building construction offices, building facilities offices, and CM (construction management) specializing companies.
In recent years, our graduates have advanced into financial institutions, law offices, and appraisal agencies, diversifying their job fields. They are also actively working in leading research institutes or going to domestic or overseas graduate schools for further studies.
