Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

Recognizing the close relations between architects and structural engineers, in particular, a special program of cooperation was established in 1990 between the Department of Architectural Studies of the School of Arts and Sciences, and the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department. Students from the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department may elect to study for a certificate in architectural studies. The certificate is described at the following location:

Interested students should work with their respective advisor to select the most appropriate classes for this opportunity.

Related Area in Architectural Studies for Engineering Students

The related area in architectural studies is intended to offer students majoring in engineering an opportunity to explore the aesthetic side of problem-solving design activity. The selection of courses can be formulated to fit the interests and goals of the individual student. The related area may range from 12 to 15 credits that may be used to partially satisfy the 18-credit Swanson School of Engineering humanities/social sciences requirements. Engineering students selecting this option must take HAA 0040 - INTRO TO WESTERN ARCHITECTURE , and HAA 1040 - ARCH: IMAGE, TEXT, THEORY  is strongly recommended. Students may elect either two or three courses in the history of architecture, e.g., HAA 0045 - INTRO TO MODERN ARCHITECTURE , HAA 1306 - HIGH RENAISSANCE ARCHITECTURE , and HAA 1160 - ROMAN ARCHITECTURE  or HAA 1480 - ARCHITECTURE SINCE 1945  and HAA 1913 - FOUNDATIONS STUDIO 1  for Architectural Studies Majors. Please contact the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at or by calling 412-624-9870.
