Architectural engineers design the structural, mechanical and electrical systems that we depend on to make our buildings safe and healthy. Construction managers use their skills in estimating, scheduling and site management to safely and economically construct these buildings.
Students in teams of 3 or 4 will be challenged to design a small commercial building including a model. The architectural design activities will be led by a registered architect. Throughout the week students will have sessions with a structural engineer, a mechanical engineer, an electrical engineer and a construction manager.

Instruction is hands on with plenty of time for questions about career choices. The week will include a tour of our structural, mechanical and electrical labs as well as an architectural walking tour of downtown Milwaukee.
