Master of Science (MSc) in Architectural Engineering

With an MSc degree in Architectural Engineering, you can help influence the design of future buildings.

Architectural Engineering

Study Programme

With Architectural Engineering, you can use your growing knowledge of engineering by optimizing and integrating it within the holistic design processes, which will define the future’s sustainable building architecture. 

The MSc programme in Architectural Engineering is linking your engineering skills to the design process through numerous cross-disciplinary project courses at high level in order to make you a specialist within the field of building design.

The programme offers as a supplement to the generic project courses a wide range of spezialisation courses in areas such as building technology energy, load-bearing structures, installations, indoor climate, fire safety, acoustics, lighting, project management, and building information modelling.

You will have the opportunity to work in close collaboration with both Danish and international companies - either as part of the courses, as an individual project or while writing your thesis.

The MSc is a two-year graduate programme with a workload of 120 ECTS credit points.

Industry MSc Eng programmes

The wide selection of technological specialsation courses at the programme gives the individual student the opportunity to make a very distinct and personal profile. Your fields of interests in engineering can most likely be combined with the design courses, in which you embed your engineering knowledge in your designs.

While it is very straightforward to make a study plan with a professional focus on Structural Design, Architectural Design or Energy Design, it is also possible to make study plans with other significant relevant profiles within Indoor Climate Design, Environmental Design or Design Management – by choosing your technological spezialisation from courses given by other (DTU)-departments than DTU Civil Engineering.

The Head of Studies will be happy to guide you further.


The programme is designed to educate you to become an important member of any design-team blending engineers and other specialists, e.g. architects. You might be involved in the early stages of building projects — which is where the key decisions are made – and where your contribution will be to communicate, innovative and optimize.
