Reach the next level of expertise with a master’s degree in Architectural Engineering. You’ll enjoy convenient scheduling and one-on-one interaction with expert faculty who bring their real-world experience to the classroom.
MSOE’s Master of Science in Architectural Engineering (MSAE) degree (formerly the Structural 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.
With the MSAE degree, you’ll enhance your analytical and design capabilities and increase your professional flexibility. For recent graduates with a civil or architectural engineering degree, earning an MSAE will accelerate the Professional Engineer credential.
The MSAE requires that you have completed an undergraduate curriculum in either architectural engineering or civil engineering, or another closely related field.
The MSAE program has two specialty tracks, one that focuses on structural systems, and one that focuses on mechanical-electrical-plumbing systems. Each specialty has a group of core classes in that particular specialty area, as well as graduate elective courses that allow students to specialize in courses that are of interest to their career. A complete list of the core and elective courses for each specialty can be found in the graduate catalog. Undergraduate students in the AE program have the option to apply in their junior year to add the MSAE degree as a 5-year program option.
The MSAE is a flexible program, with courses offered evenings with the option of a two-, three- or five-year program. Classes meet one evening per week during the academic quarter. Students enrolled in MSOE’s bachelor in architectural engineering program may pursue a dual degree.
The MSAE program requires completion of 45 graduate credits, with at least 36 of the credits obtained in technical specialty courses. There are two curriculum tracks available – the Capstone Report Track and the Capstone Project Track.
