maybe u should take a look at Sheffield and Nottingham in uk and Texas Austin in us as they are good architecture sch and offering architecture&engineering program.
for nottingham they have a master of engineering program in architecture and building services engineering which is RIBA part 1 and CIBSE accredited.
but if u'r gonna do structural u should consider sheffield. they offer master of engineering program in architecture and structural engineering which is the first and the only course of this kind in uk to receive dual professional recognition (RIBA part 1 and IStructE) so that u may choose to become an architect and/or engineer (provided u complete the part 2 education).
for similar program in the us take a look at university of texas austin. they offer BArch and BS architectural engineering double degree program which u'll finish in 6 years, both are professional degree. it's similar for the case at sheffield where u'll get 2 professional degree (MEng and MArch) in 6 years too (well, excluding the 1-year year out in practice).
in my opinion architecture and structural engineering is a gd/unique education for a career in built environment as they are complementary in nature (juz look at the great engineer-architect calatrava). and with this background u can be the one who coordinate between architects and engineers in nowadays multi-disciplinary design team. that's why the RIBA board stated in the report for Sheffield's program the course is "producing extremely competent and employable practitioners"). u may be interested in a book illustrating the relationship and works between architect and structural engineer ('how structural engineers contribute to architects', architectural press london, as i remember)
hope this helps
