Introduction

Illinois Tech’s Master of Science in Architectural Engineering is a research and thesis-based degree program oriented toward students who wish to develop more knowledge about the design, construction, and operation of buildings and their systems. Students are required to specialize in one field of concentration: building systems, construction management, or structures.

Students conduct research at a rigorous level above and beyond the coursework-only professional master’s program. This program also serves as a foundation for research for students who intend to pursue a doctoral degree.

Architectural engineering faculty and students make significant contributions to the profession, working in areas of high-impact innovation including the built environment, airflow, and thermal modeling, indoor air quality, energy and sustainability, and thermal comfort.
