    Course Summary

    The University of Salford offers a BSc degree in Architectural Engineering which is delivered in an engaging, heavily multidisciplinary environment. You’ll learn in the same way you’ll work, surrounded by colleagues from a rage of different Built Environment disciplines and perspectives, but all focused on the same projects within the design and construction sector.

    You’ll learn the sciences and theory which underlies architectural engineering, but you’ll also ‘learn by doing’, engaging with real world projects in the company of professionals who work and practice in the built environment industry. Your teaching staff will be leaders in their fields, and your project leaders will be actively working in the industry.

    The course is also offered with an integrated Foundation Year, making it accessible to a very wide range of students who might not otherwise be able to enter a BSc program. The requirements listed below are for entering the program without a foundation year.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
