From The Director’s Desk

Architecture is a very exciting professional field of study. It combines science with creativity and technology with management. Creativity is experienced in subjects like Basic Design, Visual Art and in Design Studios; Science comes in subjects like Climatology, Technology is part of subjects like Building Construction, Services and Structures; and Management is part of Professional Practice. It is a wonderful profession that takes a student to the threshold of employability with various segments of construction industry or for further studies in various specialties. There are also instances where prospective architects have chosen uncharted paths by getting into IT companies like AutoDesk, technical consultancy or diversified into music, fine arts, dance, acting or journalism. So, the avenues of growth for young architects are enormous, only one needs to be focused on learning without losing sight of the long term goals in life.
