About Architectural Engineering at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU)

The BEng Architectural Engineering programme is specifically designed to produce architectural engineers with sound knowledge, problem-solving skills, and a comprehensive understanding of the multidisciplinary aspects of building. The principles and precision of civil, structural, and building services engineering as well as the creativity of architecture are combined in this unique programme.

Graduates of this programme, as with all XJTLU undergraduate programmes, earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a globally recognised degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities.

Why should I study Architectural Engineering at XJTLU?

  • The programme is accredited by Joint Board of Moderators (JBM), UK which enables you to become a world recognised chartered engineer
  • It is intended to bring together the creativity of building design and the precision of engineering analysis to give a well-rounded education
  • Explore the form and appearance of buildings, their environmental, social, and economic impact, as well as their analysis, design and construction considering current business and commercial practices
  • Prepares students for working with professional judgement and applications in multidisciplinary teams by utilising the variety of professions represented within both the Department of Civil Engineering and the Department of Architecture
  • Most of our graduates go on to further study at the world's top universities in countries such as the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands
  • Highly dedicated international academic staff will provide you with an outstanding learning experience and full support throughout your academic career at XJTLU
  • Modules incorporate active learning activities such as site visits, field work, lab experiments, computer analysis, and also the use of technology-enhanced learning methods
  • Opportunities to work with academic staff on current research projects as research support students and contribute to potential research publications.


BEng (Hons) Accredited CEng (Partial)

This degree is accredited as:

  • fully satisfying the educational base for an Incorporated Engineer (IEng).
  • partially satisfying the educational base for a Chartered Engineer (CEng). A programme of accredited Further Learning will be required to complete the educational base for CEng.
  • See for further information and details of Further Learning programmes for CEng.

    Knowledge and skills

    Upon graduation, you will have:

    • gained a sound knowledge and understanding of architectural studies, building services engineering, construction project management and cost estimation, building information modelling and core civil engineering subjects such as structures, hydraulics, geotechnics and materials
    • acquired problem-solving skills and practical knowledge of the key aspects of civil engineering and architectural design practices
    • completed a building design and construction project that combines professional elements of both civil engineering and architecture
    • mastered the principles of project management, allocated project resources effectively and applied modern construction practices
    • applied a range of qualitative and quantitative techniques in resolving architectural engineering problems.



    BEng Architectural Engineering graduates will have a firm grounding in architectural engineering and will be equipped to take up professional employment in the construction industry and consultancy sectors as well as becoming lifelong learners and globally competitive citizens. The programme also provides a sound basis for further graduate study in architecture, civil and structural engineering, construction management and engineering or related fields. Architectural engineers mainly work as structural engineers, project managers, consulting engineers, BIM engineers, cost estimators, building envelope designers, and researchers.
