Individuals possessing a double set of skills (architect-engineers) are increasingly sought after for designing innovative architectural projects that meet the technical requirements for an environment-friendly, sustainable urban development.

Some schools offer dual-degree programmes combining architecture with civil and urban engineering. Today, such dual training is often considered an asset, and sometimes even a requirement.
