Major in Engineering and Architecture

This interdisciplinary program aims to increase the technical empathy of professionals in the areas of engineering and architecture.

Majors in Engineering and Architecture develop the abilities to design and implement fluid, feasible, and sustainable design and construction processes. Students receive an education that combines engineering with an awareness of form and context. Additionally, students will gain and understanding of and manage the needs and information flow between engineering and architecture.

This major has a limited number of slots, due to which, there is a selection process.

The Major in Engineering and Architecture allows students to obtain traditional degrees from the UC School of Engineering or, if desired, to obtain certification as a UC Architect, as long as all established requirements are met.
