The Foundation level imparts intensive training in verbal and graphic communication, logical thinking and the ability to theorize art.
The Intermediate level ensures the ability to conceive a project as a whole, its forms, always invariably placed in a context of the street, city and culture; and as a functional entity to fulfill the needs for which it is to be built.
The Final stage enables the students to think independently, to experiment with form and structure, to better understand contextual issues of society, to determine for themselves the future directions of their development as architects.
The curriculum of the degree is broadly based upon three subjects from third semester to the ninth semester, i.e.
- Architectural Design
- Architectural Technology
- History and Philosophy of Art and Architecture
Topics such as Landscape, Interior Design, Housing and Urban Design are integral parts of the Architectural Design course instead of being taught separately. Detailed study of environmental factors, CAD, presentations and model building are also a part of the same.
