It is important to distinguish architectural design from architectural engineering. The design end of he job determines how the building looks, how its design aligns with its function -- both outside and inside. Architectural engineers are licensed professional engineers who use the drawings and models of the building to engineer the structure according to sound engineering principles and local building codes.
