The mission of the Architectural Engineering Department at Cal Poly is to educate students to enter and be successful in the practice of structural engineering. The program focuses primarily on the California practice of structural engineering, that emphasizes seismic design. The curriculum goes beyond traditional structures program to give students an understanding of architecture and construction management as it relates a total project design.
