Hello, Sahastra. I am a retired Civil Engineer. If you are truly interested in going into Architecture, a Civil Engineering degree is a very good pathway. A good understanding of structural engineering will definitely enhance your capability in architectural design. Your knowledge of structural mechanics, gained through a civil engineering background, should make you a better architect, particularly early in your career.
Peter recommends the following next steps:
- Discuss your interest in architecture with a professor or counselor in the civil engineering department of your university.
