BS Architectural Engineering - ME Architectural Engineering

Semesters 1 through 8 are identical to those of the BS ARCE curriculum in the Undergraduate Bulletin, except that the student should select 9 credit hours of 500-level technical electives within their declared field of concentration in Semesters 7 and 8 to serve as shared courses between the two degrees, subject to adviser approval. The core course requirement for CAE 513 is waived for co-terminal students.
