School of Architecture

“Fuelling Dreams for the future”

The B.Arch. program is strong in the fundamentals of architectural theory and practice, and responds to the changing definitions of architecture in the Indian and global contexts. The emphasis on ‘Practice to Theory’ and ‘Theory to Practice’ makes the B-Arch program competitive and relevant. The maker-centred pedagogy is an integrated process of directed, experiential, hands-on, reflective and independent learning. Being a systemic interdisciplinary course, it focuses on creative problem solving and instils self-motivation to learn.
