The Building Systems Engineering discipline is the research and graduate education arm of the architectural engineering program. Demand for architectural engineering graduates is very high as there are only 15 programs in the United States while there are thousands of architectural engineering design firms. Our program has been rated as one of the top architectural engineering programs in the country.
Students pursuing degrees in the Building Systems Engineering program will have the qualifications needed to seek career opportunities in the design of building-related engineered systems including structural, mechanical, acoustical, lighting, and electric power systems, as well as facility management, engineering sales, and engineering consulting. Many internship opportunities are available for undergraduate and graduate students with the many architectural engineering design and energy analysis firms based in Colorado.
