Milwaukee School of Engineering’s Architectural Engineering degree emphasizes building structural design and analysis. It meets the needs of architectural, civil or structural engineers who desire increased knowledge to design structural systems for modern buildings. 


Milwaukee School of Engineering’s Master of Science in Architectural Engineering (MSAE) degree allows specialization in either the analysis and design of building structural systems or the analysis and design of building mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems (MEP). It meets the needs of architectural engineers who desire increased knowledge to design structural or MEP systems for modern buildings. MSAE courses focus on advanced topics on the analysis and design of building systems.
