With a three-year programme(BA) the Faculty offers two types of training: a first cycle of general studies or a first cycle in architecture.
This training leads to a Bachelor's degree in engineering and allows students to specialize in one of the 5 following fields during the second cycle: chemistry - materials science, electrical engineering, computer and management sciences, mechanical engineering, mining and geology.
This is a more specific three-year programme which leads to a Bachelor's degree in architectural engineering and enables holders to continue their education in the same field during the second cycle, which lasts two years (MA).
The two types of training are similar, but students in architectural engineering receive from the very start a specific awareness of the art of building by incorporating aesthetic, constructive and human approaches. At the same time, they are initiated to the work methods of architects.
Those who wish to change their specialization field after having passed their first year of studies must add “bridge curriculum” classes to their regular study programme of the second year...
At the Faculty of Engineering, Mons the application of the Bologna decree led to a thorough reform of the programmes. The main implications for the Bachelor's degree include :
