Introduction

The OmDayal College of Architecture was established in 2012 as the first private Architecture College in West Bengal.  Since the inception the college is aiming to take Architecture Education beyond the realms of buildings and propel it into developing a sustainable environment. The goal is 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 College of Architecture is approved by AICTE, Accredited by NACC and affiliated to MAKAUT (Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology, W.B. formerly known as West Bengal University of Technology)

Three batches of students have already graduated in 2017, 2018 and 2019. The current final year batch is leaving for professional training, as a part of the curriculum, at various architectural firms pan India.

Alumni of the college are currently working in various organizations in different capacities across India, some pursuing their post graduate studies in India and abroad. Most recently one of our students, Purbita Samanta, was ranked 2nd at GATE 2019, in Architecture.
