|Courses in India
Consolidated list of colleges and universities in India offering B.Arch and M.Arch courses in architecture and construction engineering is provided here. Given below information is also provided about eligibility and courses of architecture and construction engineering.
COURSE IN ARCHITECTURE AND CONSTRUCTION ENGINEERING
in Architecture (B.Arch) is a 5 year course after +2. There are about a number
of national institutions that offer architectural training at the under-graduate
level. Those candidates who have studied Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics
can apply for admission. A minimum of 60% marks in aggregate in the Senior
Secondary School Certificate Examination (+2) is required, with the main
subjects being English and Mathematics. An entrance examination will be
given to test the candidates on their comprehension, sketching abilities
and IQ. The top institutions in Ahmedabad and Delhi give about 30% weightage
to class 12 results and the rest to the entrance exam. The course can
be taken full-time or part-time, the former being divided into 10 semesters
(16 weeks each) that also includes 6 months of practical training.
basic subjects taught are Humanities, Arts and Crafts, Design, Engineering
and Technology. The studies mainly focus on : developing awareness of
the technical, cultural and environmental factors that determine the limits
of any architectural problem understanding the institutional forces which
will define the ground on which decisions will be framed balancing the
aesthetic, scientific and technical requirements During the final year,
students need to undergo practical apprenticeship with a selected Architectural
firm. This training helps them to practice and learn all the various aspects
of architectural designing, under the guidance of experienced professionals.
The Post-graduate awards offered are the Masters degree (M.Arch), the
PG diploma and the Ph.D., which usually last from about 1 and a half to
of the reputed institutions in India offering architecture and construction engineering
