Our quest is to impart a profound and more holistic learning process. The process is to be backed by an enlightened faculty, who will not only participate actively but also provide new ways for active learning processes.
To ensure the learning process is more participatory and interactive. We wish to take Architecture Education beyond the realms of buildings and propel it into developing a sustainable environment. Learning would, hence, look into diverse needs of the society and more need based role of the professionals it would be preparing in the years to come.
To engage more qualified Architects in the service to society as the number of Architects graduating from this region is still negligible compared to the rest of the country. More Architects would mean an eco-friendly and more sustainable built environment and hence a much better world to live in for future generations.
The objectives of the School of Architecture reﬂect the view that architecture is an intellectual discipline, both as an art and a profession. The program, therefore, is based on the following intentions:
- To stimulate artistic sensitivity and creative powers,
- To strengthen intellectual growth and the capacity to develop creative and responsible solutions to unique and changing problems, and
- To help the student acquire the individual capabilities necessary for the competent practice of architecture and lifelong learning.
- Apply knowledge of materials and relying on basic sense and understanding of social and historical context, try to mould space to provide a comfortable and physically formable living unit which may be used for the specific purpose over a period of time.
- Design and conduct experiments, interpret and analyze data, synthesize the information to provide conclusion.
- Assess local and global impact of societal issues on the profession.
- Able to understand the impact of architectural solutions on society and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
