Architectural & Facilities Engineering is the detailed study of how to make, revamp, and operate buildings. Facilities engineering, is similar and has the same four basic curriculum areas, but focuses on making existing buildings better. If you are interested in designing and constructing new or revamped buildings, this is the minor for you.
The Architectural & Facilities Engineering (AFE) minor at Clarkson University is housed within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE), but is open to all majors. Majors in Civil, Mechanical, Environmental, and Electrical Engineering, and Engineering & Management will pair best with the AFE minor.
The AFE minor builds on the success of the Clarkson Construction Engineering Management program (CEM) and its numerous impressive and national award-winning accomplishments. Industry leading firms are looking to find their top talent at Clarkson, including those with a minor in Architectural & Facilities Engineering.
