The Architectural Engineering courses at Ulster University is a first of its kind in Ireland. It is specifically designed to produce multi-disciplinary graduates who are creative and innovative and who can work in building services, architectural integration, energy use in buildings and the application of renewable technologies. The programme aims to produce architecturally informed Building Services Engineers and Energy professionals able to deliver energy conscious and environmentally sustainable solutions for buildings.
The faculty impressed the judges from the CIBSE accreditation panel with its research facilities and the increasingly unique experience this offers its undergraduate students, which, in the words of the panel ‘turns out fully rounded engineers’.
