Dear citizens, Architecture is NOT under Engineering. According to my understanding after 4 and a half year of studying and almost 1 year working experience (including practical training), Architecture is the whole, while Engineering is more to specific. Architecture is the process or its field of work that always associated with creativity/art, consists of designing and constructing a building or space. Engineering on the other hand is the deeper level in constructions, which is the system and structure of the building/space. It implemented the knowledge of mathematics, physics & others law of science into the construction to achieve the perfect structure.
