DTU is following the COVID-19 situation and its impact closely, please consult the webpage to get the latest updates.

With Architectural Engineering , you can use your growing knowledge of engineering by optimizing and integrating it within the holistic design processes, which will define the future’s sustainable building architecture.

You will have the opportunity to work in close collaboration with both Danish and international companies - either as part of the courses, as an individual project or while writing your thesis.

The MSc is a two-year graduate programme with a workload of 120 ECTS credit points.


The wide selection of technological specialsation courses at the degree in Architectural Engineering from Technical University of Denmark (DTU)   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.

A 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.
