AENG 4100 Architectural Engineering Integrative DesignCredit Hours: 3

Integrative Design is the capstone course for Architectural Engineers. The intent of the Integrative Design Studio is to expose the student to design development of their design ideas beyond schematic/conceptual design. The student develops the beginnings of a clearly articulated and developed design solution that integrates structure, mechanical systems and equipment considerations, material and construction decisions while advancing the development of their conceptual position. Attention is also given to conformance to the building codes, egress provisions, special needs of universal design, building performance / sustainability, and creating detail drawings.

Prerequisites:
AENG 1400 (Minimum Grade of D, May not be taken concurrently) OR
ARCH 1400 (Minimum Grade of D, May not be taken concurrently) AND
CIVE 4680 (Minimum Grade of D, May be taken concurrently) OR
ENGR 4820 (Minimum Grade of D, May be taken concurrently)
