Program Information

The Bachelors of Architecture program produces architects, who understand that architecture is an integral part of the society's arts, are knowledgeable about the global and regional issues and trends have deep understanding of their identity and the society and believe in the relevance of architecture towards a better future for all. We envisage a research based pedagogy in all subjects where students demonstrate their knowledge through examinations and in the form of research projects that synthesize the semester's work, in order to emphasize the skills of critical thinking and analysis acquired by students. The B. Arch curriculum has been designed to situate architecture within these broader and multi-faceted parameters and is taught through a holistic pedagogy.

The courses in the Scheme of Studies of this program are divided into three stages i.e. foundation, intermediate, and final, spread over ten semesters. The foundation level courses impart intensive training in verbal and graphic communication, logical thinking and the ability to theorize. The intermediate level courses ensure the ability to conceive a project as a whole, its forms, always invariably placed in a context of the street, city and culture, and as a functional entity to fulfil the needs for which it is to be built. The final stage enables the students to think independently, to better understand contextual issues of society, to determine for themselves the future directions of their development as architects, fully prepared for present time market demand.
