The Architectural Engineering Program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Program Educational Objectives

The objective of the undergraduate program in Architectural Engineering is to prepare graduates for successful careers in the Architectural Engineering profession. A few years after graduation WPI Architectural Engineering graduates are expected to have the ability to: 

  1. Attain registration as Professional Engineers,
  2. Earn a graduate degree in Architectural Engineering or a related discipline,
  3. Enhance their skills through continued education, 
  4. Serve their profession through engagement with professional societies, 
  5. Demonstrate commitment to sustainable design principles within their professional work
