My friend says she's a building engineer. I ask:
Is that the same as an architect?
can this be said?
No. Big buildings have architects, who concern themselves with all aspects of design, including the artistic, and also engineers who concern themselves exclusively with applied science matters, e.g, structural engineers (will it stand up in a hurricane a hundred years from now) and mechanical engineers (how will we get water and fresh air to the occupants, and dispose of their sewage).
But the architect is the boss.

You could ask her what kind of building engineer- that might clear things up.
