About Architecture Education
Your environment is the space outside yourself and you move in it. No one is free of
the environment one inhabits. Your surroundings bind .you to the world and your
existence is shaped by it. An Architect has the unique privilege of making
environments for others to inhabit. An architect shapes the environment with
sensitivity to those who will ultimately use it and live in it. Being an architect is the
ultimate responsibility and the ultimate challenge.
Studying Architecture can open your mind to this vast subject t of space and design.
The architectural course is a broad base look at almost every man-made object
and idea, thus in a sense covers all that we know as culture. A student studies the
building sciences, its technology the art, aesthetics, the humanities and society,
and learns from all these to put into practice the actual making of buildings. To be
an architect, you not only need a fine hand, but a keen mind sensitive to the needs
of others for whom you will be designing.
Design can span smallest spoon to the largest city and the study of architecture will
give you a sense of all its scales. No doubt, the concentration will be on designing
buildings, but the five year course gives you a holistic insight into all forms of
design and allows you to explore these in depth. In the course of five years, you
will also gain insights and abilities in Interior Design, landscape Design and Urban
Design. Apart from this you will gain an appreciation of varied subjects from
Design to Building Construction, from Structure to History ,from Sociology to
Building Surveying and Valuation. The course will take you out of the college into
the world at large, where you will visit sites and understand the actualities of the
buildings, go on tours all around the country to visit our vast heritage of
architecture. By graduation, you will have gained management, leadership and
communication skills, understanding of life.
The aim of this course is to make you a practicing Professional. once you graduate with
a B.Arch. Degree, you have to get registered with Council of Architecture. You are
then ready to practice, to put into effect all you have learnt for the benefit of the
society at large. Architecture as a discipline is not subject to the shifting winds of
trends and fashion. There is always a need for building and for shaping spaces,
both interior and exterior. An architect is always needed, no matter how small or large the need of the design is.
After you graduate, the opportunities are endless. Setting up practice is the most
common route for most of the architects. Some prefer to study further by joining
specialized Post Graduations( M.Arch. ) as Planning, Management or Research.
Studying architecture prepares you for a number of disciplines by giving the necessary skills and sensitivity. Architects have become top professionals in varied fields such as graphics, product, interior, landscape or urban design, planning, conservation, construction management, computer application, education, film making and arts. In each case, knowledge and understanding of the built environment allows for a unique insight that leads to excellence Just as we can never escape our environment, the shapers of the environment, namely architects, can never escape their destinies as the shapers of the society.
