Abstract

This paper describes an innovative new multi - disciplinary single undergraduate degree with a major in Civil Engineering and a minor in Architecture completed within four years . The program is Civil Engineering with Architecture. It is not a combined degree , it is a “with” degree . The core of the Civil Engineering Program is maintained and supplemented with almost a full year of courses from the Architecture faculty. The program aims are to provide an appreciation of architectural principles, an understanding of the architect's role, the interaction between architects and engineers, and the importance of ethics, context, sustainability, unique innovative design and aesthetics. Students graduating from this program will be better equipped to collaborate with architects and other professionals in the built environment to produce integrated and sustainable design .
