Study programme focus
The MSc programme in Architectural Engineering from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is linking your engineering skills to the design process through numerous cross-disciplinary project courses at high level in order to make you a specialist within the field of building design.
The programme offers as a supplement to the generic project courses a wide range of spezialisation courses in areas such as building technology energy, load-bearing structures, installations, indoor climate, fire safety, acoustics, lighting, project management, and building information modelling.
The wide selection of technological specialsation courses at the programme gives the individual student the opportunity to make a very distinct and personal profile. Your fields of interests in engineering can most likely be combined with the design courses, in which you embed your engineering knowledge in your designs.
While it is very straightforward to make a study plan with a professional focus on Structural Design, Architectural Design or Energy Design, it is also possible to make study plans with other significant relevant profiles within Indoor Climate Design, Environmental Design or Design Management – by choosing your technological spezialisation from courses given by other (DTU)-departments than DTU Civil Engineering.
MSc Eng graduates in Architectural Engineering have plenty of opportunity to find employment with private and public companies, architects, consulting engineers, client consultants, building component and element manufacturers, contractors, public authorities, and research institutions. Furthermore, you might get the opportunity to continue your studies and do a PhD, for instance at DTU.
An MSc in Architectural Engineering will provide you with diverse and exciting career opportunities, allowing you to influence the buildings of tomorrow—in Denmark as well as internationally. DTU’s MSc in Architectural Engineering is highly respected on a global scale as a professional, academic engineering programme.
