Architectural Engineering Bachelor's Degree Program Highlights

Students study architectural engineering at UW for many reasons, but several are most prominent. Joining the program will grant you access to the following benefits and more.

Smaller Class Sizes

UW has quality instructors in the ideal setting for collaborative instruction. Instead of sitting in a lecture hall with 400 other students, you’ll gather with around 45 of your peers to work together on shared experiences.

Software Access

Workstations are outfitted with software tools in a studio for Architectural Engineering students to complete sketches and printed projects. There is also an HVAC lab space. It’s perfect for preparing young professionals. 


Financial Support

Some scholarships and opportunities are available. Look into undergraduate resources and see what you might be eligible for. We can help you explore options for covering the cost of getting an education. 

Networking & Student Groups

Students visit with guest speakers, attend conferences, and complete projects in the Architectural Engineering Institute organization. They can also connect with future employers through instructors and Design Day.

In my opinion, the best thing about engineering at UW is the incredible support that I received from the professors.
