Master of Science in Architectural Engineering
The Master of Science in Architectural Engineering couples the architectural engineering coursework curriculum for the advanced study of building science, building systems, and their construction, with a research and thesis-based curriculum in the same fields. Students are expected to develop advanced knowledge and conduct research at a rigorous level. The program will also serve as a foundation for research for students who intend to pursue a doctoral degree.
Degree candidates in the master of science program must complete a minimum of 32 credit hours, six to eight of which must be research and thesis credits. Up to 12 credit hours of 400-level undergraduate coursework may be included in the program with prior adviser approval. An oral defense of the thesis constitutes the comprehensive examination, and no additional written comprehensive examination is required.
