The Penn State Department of Architectural Engineering (AE) is partnering with the World Bank Graduate
Scholarship Program to support AE graduate students from World Bank-eligible member countries to further the
education of their academically prepared citizens via specialized master of science (M.S.) and master of engineering
(M.Eng.) degree programs. The World Bank is offering full scholarships that cover all expenses for mid-career
professionals from specific countries to obtain an M.Eng. degree in architectural engineering. Candidates must have a
minimum of three years of work experience in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)-related fields
and a career ambition to use the knowledge gained to positively impact the building stockpile in their home country.
M.S. degree program in architectural engineering
The Penn State Department of Architectural Engineering is ranked globally at the top of its field and offers an M.S. in architectural
engineering that contains a mix of research and coursework. M.S. students take a minimum of 30 credits, including a 6-credit research thesis. Students who obtain the M.S. degree are well prepared for positions in the building industry or for continuing their education in a doctoral program.
M.Eng. degree program in architectural engineering
The M.Eng. in architectural engineering is a 12-month program consisting of a 30-credit core curriculum. The program is specifically designed with an ultra-high-performance buildings emphasis to grow the knowledge base and technical skills of building professionals, policy makers, and regulators who will return to their home countries to contribute to advancing the building and construction sectors. Students who successfully complete the program will be poised to return to their home countries to contribute to their building and construction sectors through the engineering of ultra-high-performance and sustainable buildings.
