Architectural Engineer Information
August 30th, 2017

Architectural engineers are highly skilled professionals who use their expert knowledge of engineering, design, and math to create usable buildings. These specialists typically work on site as part of a team consisting of other architects, engineers and construction workers. Architectural engineers must have extensive knowledge of math, engineering, design, and architecture. They must also have a keen eye for detail and precision.
A bachelor's degree in architecture, engineering or an associated field is the minimum requirement to become an architectural engineer. However, employment opportunities are limited with this minimum qualification. Earning a master's degree will enhance job opportunities tremendously, and also qualify you for more challenging research and development positions. Many employers will also require applicants to have completed the PE or Principals and Practice of Engineering exam and FE or Fundamentals of Engineering exam.
Carrying along a portfolio that contains snapshots of your work is the single best way to demonstrate your skills to prospective employers. Your interviewer will likely ask you questions about the kind of work you've done to determine whether you have the experience and skills to handle their projects. They will also ask you questions about your career goals. Do you know what you will say when they ask you where you think you will be 5 or 10 years from now? The best way to prepare for these unexpected questions is to rehearse the answers in advance. You can find most commonly asked interview questions at Mock Questions.
