Hello Prof Wentz,
I would be happy to know more about AE and specially the deference between AE and Architecture majors. I also have a question about the AE, can the architectural engineer work and be innovative with the designs? which it's the architecture job.
AE and Architecture are very different. An architect focuses on the external look and layout of the building, they are essentially the artist. The AE specialties make sure the building actually works by designing the structure, HVAC/Plumbing, and electrical systems. If you are more artistic and like to draw/paint/sculpt then you would probably prefer Architecture. If you are more interested in math/science/problem solving then AE is right for you. AE's usually have to be very creative because often the Architect doesn't think of the systems when they make their overall design, so getting the systems to work can be tricky. And all of the new green technologies would be implemented by the AE.
I hope that helps, let me know if you have more questions!
Thanks for your email
my mjor is Architecture
