The Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) degree under the Department of Architecture at the Faculty of Engineering in the university is a fully accredited (UGC accredited) professional degree similar to one popular all over the world. As per universal architecture accreditation norms, out of 194 credits, 110 credit is assigned to sessional and 84 credits to theory courses i.e. 56.7%: 43.3% in favor of sessional.
This department is completely different from other departments due to its way of teaching. The sessional classes are termed as ‘Design Studio’ where each student has a drafting table and locker to work on. Due to the emphasis on sessional courses, students spend most of the time in this studio, which actually becomes their most favorite place. The department ensures an environment that also encourages them to be active, spontaneous, and hard working. The design process is a continuous development of ideas that are not confined during class hours only. Sometimes they stay very late at the studio for their design project under teachers monitoring from time to time.
Besides the regular courses, the department feels is highly important to get students familiar with other branches of knowledge. So the department organizes lectures, seminars, and workshops on a regular basis. The department has inaugurated Lecture series to share ideas and thought with the students. The department is moving toward a vibrant environment to become in a leading position in the field of Architecture education.
The exhibition is an inspiration to the students where the best projects are showcased to the public. The department aims to organize a year-end exhibition which will project the best ideas of every design studio. This event will become a meeting place for architects and professionals. Students will share their ideas with them as well as stay in touch with the professionals.
