There are currently 25 ABET accredited Architectural Engineering (AE) programs in the United States that offer degrees closely associated with the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry. AE programs are sparse and unique compared to civil engineering, construction management, and architecture programs, and must be adaptable to the AEC industry to remain current with leading industry practices. To remain relevant to industry, AE programs regularly evolve their senior capstone project experience, incorporating new methods and technologies graduates will encounter upon entrance into the profession. This paper serves to expand upon an earlier survey that benchmarked AE capstone courses with a new, expanded survey of the programs. Information presented in this paper look towards unique program experiences, trends, gaps, and possible new educational avenues from the survey results. This paper will include a literature search for similar research being incorporated into AE education, and areas to be explored in the survey will include: mentoring styles, assignment formulation, student progression, and delivery styles.
