"As an architect you design for the present, with an awareness of the past, for a future which is essentially unknown." – Norman Foster
The School of Architecture offers B.Arch. program of five years and is aimed to establish a center of excellence for architecture education. It facilitates multidisciplinary research to deal with the complexities of human settlements as a whole. The School has developed a network of top architects and designers and have involved them in teaching and guiding. It has a vision to train learners who should be sensitive towards expectations of people and responsive towards nature, environment, society and nation, coupled with ethics and human values.
Architecture is an amalgamation of the aesthetic spaces and the technical skills in context to the environmental settings. There is a growing respect for architecture as one of the top academic disciplines, a design practice, and a practical business closely connected with the largest segment of investment in the economy. Architects are called upon to think of concepts, plans and accomplish construction tasks and take other decisions related to setting up a physical environment in a diversity of surroundings.
The Ajeenkya DY Patil University – School of Architecture understands Architecture as the discipline responsible for the design of the built environment. While studying at ADYPU, you will acquire the necessary knowledge and understanding of how buildings are made and, in the pursuit of this, acquire skills of observation, analysis, creative thinking and design. You will learn about the significance of the architectural past, engage critically with contemporary architecture, and apply your skills and knowledge to the formation of built environments of the present and future.
The creation of Architectural propositions - as modest as a dwelling or as grand and complex as a city scale intervention - is, for the architect, a matter of neither formula nor chance, but of reflection, negotiation and adaptation to material, social and cultural contexts. Architecture therefore is an interdisciplinary learning of engineering, design, construction, urban planning, environmental science, sociology and history. The theme, which underpins our approach to architectural education, is that everything you do will be a process of enquiry and as such enables you to discover and develop your own process of design and position within architecture.
Through a carefully-designed curriculum, School of Architecture will introduce you to all these disciplines and reveal how they are complicit to the central discipline of Architecture. We consider Architectural Design as a unique mode of thought and practice, combining the skills of logical analysis, critical judgment and creativity that produce buildings.
Our curriculum is designed to make our students Industry ready architects. While embarking on the task to define and design the course structure for this unique program, we decided to use internationally accepted benchmark. We follow National Architectural Accrediting Board to teach and develop the research, evaluative and critical thinking skills necessary for professional practice and lifelong learning.
Ajeenkya DY Patil University aims to provide high quality, innovative educational experience. Our program is designed to equip our students to be leaders of their profession, to be visionary global citizens and lifelong Learners
Our Architecture program demonstrate that each graduate possesses the knowledge and skills defined by the criteria below. The knowledge and skills defined here represent those required to prepare graduates for the path to internship, examination and engage in related fields
Critical Thinking And Representation: Our graduates are able to build abstract relationships and understand the impact of ideas based on the study and analysis of multiple theoretical, social, political, economic, cultural and environmental contexts. We prepare our graduates to be able to use diverse range of skills to think about and convey architectural ideas
Building Practices, Technical Skills, and Knowledge: A very special emphasis is placed on our graduates to understand the technical aspects of design, systems, and materials and be able to apply that comprehension to architectural solutions. In addition, studying the impact of such decisions on the Environment systems, Codes and regulations, Building envelope systems etc. help to acquire comprehensive skills of architecture.
Integrated Architectural Solutions: Our graduates aim to learn and demonstrate the ability to synthesize a wide range of variables such as research methodologies and practices used during design process, implication of design decisions across systems and scales, design decisions with in a complex architectural project and many more to integrated design solution.
Professional Practice: Our curriculum helps graduates to understand the principles of architecture, including management, advocacy and the need to act legally, ethically and critically for the good of the client, society and the public.
Architects are the actual creators of amazing buildings and structures that exist in our surroundings. By the time you have completed the course, you can either opt for higher studies or apply for jobs or start something of your own. Both lead to the development of specialised skill sets that help further enhance career prospects.
Architects have immense job opportunities in corporate world as well as at construction world. Architect Firms, Consultancy companies, Universities, Construction companies etc. readily employ architects for variety of work ranging from designing to. After completing graduation, you can go for the higher studies. You can pursue Master degree or further studies in architecture field. You can also work as a lecturer in various Institutions. You can also work with an architectural firm or under the supervision of a well-established architect.
Architects have the entrepreneurial instinct and can also establish their own firm after gaining required experience. Government Organizations also offer jobs to the B.Arch Candidates such as Archaeological Department, National Building Organization, Ministry of Defense, Departments of Railways, Housing and Urban Development Corporation, Public Works Department, etc.
Architecture, as a profession, is now being viewed as the extension of the new construction technologies, building materials and innovations in design and structure. Architect concentrates how to make people living simple and comfortable ranging from middle class to upper class & provide them shelter and housing with luxury and style
The famous German Architect Walter Gropius said that: "Society needs a good image of itself. That is the true job of an architect."
