M.Sc. in Architectural Engineering is an education programme for you who want to design these spaces. It is one of two Architectural Engineering programmes in Sweden.

The Swedish construction sector is undergoing a number of years a change where the ability to understand and meet both individual and societal needs and preferences are increasingly important. This has created a need for engineers with a second and broader knowledge than is provided in the traditional architecture and building courses.

Master of Architecture, you gain knowledge in science and technology, but also in architecture, structural engineering, urban planning, design, behavioral science and economics that are essential to your professional role in the future of architecture and construction. You have the opportunity to develop your skills and your creativity when you train you in designing, developing and operating buildings that are functional, attractive, healthy and economical.

For a Master of Architecture, it is important to communicate and collaborate with other professionals. In order to practice these skills, see some of the first three years of courses together with other aspiring engineers. From the fourth year, select a focus on your education through their own choice of courses.
