Architectural engineering graduates are in great demand because of the ever increasing importance placed on the design, construction and operation of sustainable buildings.

Architectural engineers play a critical role in the multidisciplinary design teams of today’s architecture and engineering sectors.

Graduates of architectural engineering gain employment in a wide range of professions, including architects, design managers, design engineers, design coordinators, building services engineers, consultants, project managers, building control officers and facility managers.

The UK is a world leader in building design and engineering and graduates secure positions within a wide range of multi-national and private organisations, such as Arup, AECOM, Atkins, Amec Foster Wheeler, Bailey Partnership, Hoare Lea and Laing O’Rourke.
