Undergraduate Degree in Architectural Engineering
The Educational Objectives of the Architectural Engineering Program are:
Within a few years of graduation, alumni of the Texas A&M University-Kingsville undergraduate architectural engineering program will demonstrate achievement in the following areas:
- Our graduates will practice in one of the areas appropriate to the interdisciplinary field of architectural engineering (architecture, construction management, building services engineering, or structural engineering).
- Our graduates will demonstrate leadership qualities (such as career advancement, community service, and professional society activity) and maintain high standards for professional and ethical behavior.
- Our graduates will pursue continuing education opportunities.
To achieve these objectives, the department has outlined the following program outcomes:
By the time of graduation, undergraduate students in the Texas A&M University-Kingsville architectural engineering program will demonstrate the following skills:
- (a) an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
- (b) an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data, within a architectural engineering context.
- (c) an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
- (d) an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams for the design and construction of buildings.
- (e) an ability to identify, formulate, and solve architectural engineering problems.
- (f) an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
- (g) an ability to communicate effectively.
- (h) the broad education necessary to understand the impact of architectural engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
- (i) a recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
- (j) a knowledge of how the built environment relates to contemporary issues.
- (k) an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for architectural engineering practice.
