The Ph.D. program within the architectural engineering field, allows students the opportunity to focus their research in the specialized concentrations of building energy, lighting, electrical, acoustics, and structures.
While the research curriculum is a priority, there are several professional societies and student groups on campus to aid students in their studies and networking, including the Acoustical Society of America, University of Nebraska Student Branch; Architectural Engineering Institute, University of Nebraska Student Branch; and the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America.
