MSc Architectural Engineering

Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE)

msarchiteng01

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 offers an emphasis in either structural engineering or in mechanical-electrical-plumbing (MEP) systems. Students that select the MEP option have the ability to choose elective courses to focus on mechanical, electrical, or plumbing systems. It meets the needs of architectural, civil or structural engineers who desire increased knowledge to design structural, mechanical, electrical or plumbing 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.

Program Overview

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.

Curriculum Format

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.

Financial Aid

All MSOE graduate students are eligible to apply for the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan. Most of MSOE’s graduate students are employed full-time and over 70% receive employer tuition support. If you are employed, we also recommend that you speak with your employer about tuition reimbursement assistance.

Outcomes and Objectives

Student Outcomes

The outcomes of the Master of Science in Architectural Engineering program are such that, at the time of graduation, each graduate will be able to:

  • perform structural analysis on structural systems and structural components comprised of many types of material subjected to gravity, wind and/or seismic loads.
  • design structural systems made up of many structural components and structural materials; structural members; and connections in accordance with current building codes and specifications.
  • individually complete a structural engineering project addressing the complex requirements of modern structures.

Program Educational Objectives

The Master of Science in Architectural Engineering program will produce graduates who:

  • will be able to confidently meet the responsibilities of a professional structural engineer,
  • will, if so desired, be employed in the field of structural engineering,
  • will, if so desired, be able to become licensed professional engineers,
  • will, if so desired, be able to obtain a Ph.D. in structural engineering or civil engineering.
