Architecture Colleges in India

Anyone wishing to take up architecture must be sure about his aptitudes for this calling. He must have an artistic bent of mind, be creative and have good drawing skills. However, it may also be remembered that architectural design is not like normal painting or drawing and many technical aspects must be kept in mind. So, merely an artistic bent of mind may not be sufficient for becoming an architect. Also required is a knack for technical drawing. It is always advisable to assess one's suitability with a professional before taking a decision to go ahead in this career.

There is a great demand for architect nowadays. This has been partly a result of the changing lifestyle and the surge of technology that lead to many modern gadgets and appliances. A house is no longer only a place where you live and sleep, it is also where computer, TV, telephones, etc. are kept in their proper spaces.

Here comes the role of architects and designers who ensure optimum utilization of precious space in the house. Aspects like natural heat and light must also be considered; an architect must know the intricacies of construction management, the knowledge of various materials available and the latest practices in the trade.

A related profession is that of interior design. This is a less rigorous task, since it involves doing the interiors as per the needs of the client. Many people have got into interior designing without any formal degree, provided they had a knack for doing up the rooms. Usually, architects take up the job of interior design as well, though there are people who exclusively do interior design.

To study architecture, the aspirants have to appear in the entrance examinations of various institutes. Many of these are conducted j @ointly with the pre-engineering test. The basic qualification is class 12. Usually, one is tested for creative skills and mathematics, since architecture involves mathematical drawings and models. The course leads to the B. Arch, degree, which can be obtained from any of the institutes listed below the map.

The jobs available are with firms of architects, or with urban planning agencies. Further demand for planners will grow as the cities expand and population increases. After a few years of getting to know the ropes, one can start a consultancy of one's own, depending on one's inclination. Alternately, one can go for higher studies. The Master of Architecture is available at many universities abroad.

The National University of Singapore offers several programmes for architects. These are: a) Master of Architecture, b) Master of Arts Urban Design, c) Master of Science (Building Science), d) Master of Science (Project Management) and e) Master of Science (Real Estate). The courses cover various aspects ke Contemporary Design, Building Technology, Urban Design, Architectural Practice and so on. Doing a course abroad has the advantage that one learns of the latest techniques and practices.

Finally, it may be said that a career in architecture and interior design can turn out to be a very satisfying one. These days there is a requirement for low cost homes and buildings and an innovative architect can make a great name. Alternately, one can go abroad as architects are paid very well in USA and Europe. The avenues are many, but the bottom line is to be good in the field. One must be aware of the latest trends and be able to suggest a design that the client has not thought of. This is where the architectural profession becomes a highly intellectual one.
