Architectural Engineering & Construction
Nebraska is home to some of the most recognized and respected names in the engineering, design and construction industry. The university is well-positioned to have the most recognized and respected academic program to match.
The university has created the Durham School of Architectural Engineering and Construction, the only place in the country that puts all elements of a comprehensive building education in one academic school. That collaborative nature, along with a "living laboratory" offering real world experience in mechanical, information management, and lighting and electrical systems, is attracting the brightest and most creative minds to Nebraska.
And the results are impressive. Demand for Durham School graduates is very high, because building, design and construction industries are among the largest in the nation while only a minority of universities offer education in these fields.
I am so privileged and excited that I am a student at the University of Nebraska. I have not been here very long but can already tell it is going to have a huge impact on my life. The students, my friends, and professors have all been very kind. It is scholarships like this one that make my education possible. Thank you.
