“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
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.
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
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.”
