Department Overview

The Department of Architectural Engineering offers international standard education that is technically contemporary and, at the same time, rooted in the context and environment of the region. The curriculum equips students with theoretical and practical skills, and the department provides students with opportunities for practical training. Together, these two features of our program prepare students to join the employment market as designers and architectural engineers with ample knowledge of sustainable design and the construction and technical requirements of the UAE's building industry.

The department is staffed by dedicated academics and professionals who maintain the department's vision in a collegial environment that fosters excellence in teaching and research. The Sharjah Architectural Student Association (SASA) is the department's dynamic student body that supports learning through various activities, tours, and events.
