 Lisa's Portfolio of Architectural Engineering
All of these numbers are important when designing a building, and an architectural engineer is expected to understand what these numbers mean in terms of what the building is going to look like structurally, how much the building is going to cost to build, and how much it will cost to maintain.
I have asked architects, engineers, and professors what these differences would be, but even they sometimes didn't explain it very well to me. This gave me the impression that architectural engineers were not needed in the field because an architect or other type of engineer could do the same job.
Because the architectural engineer (known as a structural or mechanical engineer) is hired by the architect, an architectural engineer will not come into the picture until the selection of the architect.
