About the course

With a growing urban population worldwide, more questions are being asked of the sustainability of the built environment than ever before. To understand the challenges faced by the increasing urbanisation of the planet this course re-establishes the creative nature of engineering thinking in architectural design.

Designed in close collaboration with leading practices, the programme takes a multidisciplinary approach to engineering design linking theoretical principles of the taught subject to a fully integrated style of building design.

High quality learning experience

Capitalising on the long-standing reputation of Engineering at Loughborough University, this course ensures you will develop knowledge in areas of architectural design, structural engineering and building energy performance. Preparing you with the skills needed to flourish as a contemporary building designer.

Students working on model of bridge

The course includes a wide variety of design projects informed by real demands of communities and stakeholders to give our students in-depth designing experience.

Additionally, Grand Tours have always been viewed as the best way to discover and learn from existing buildings and so our students will attend a study trip in Europe, allowing them to benefit from the experience of state-of-the-art building design.

Professional accreditation

As is the multidisciplinary nature of the course, we are seeking accreditation from the JBM (Joint Board of Moderators), CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) and CIOB (Chartered Institute of Buildings) for both the MEng and BEng programmes. Full accreditation is only possible when the first cohort of students graduate.

The School maintains a strong relationship with these boards as they accredit all the School’s current programmes. As a school and institution, we take the process of course accreditation very seriously and have a vast wealth of experience with numerous professional bodies.

Key course features

We have developed several key features that we feel collectively sets our course apart from others and creates a unique flavour of architectural engineering education.

We offer both a BEng and a MEng degree, with despite the latter having higher entry requirements you can progress across if successful in your first years of study.
