Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) Course
Architectural education in the country has witnessed quite a few changes with increase in the number of institutions imparting architectural education, mostly the self-financed ones. Amongst the other issues such as, new thrust areas in academics, intake and quality of entrants, physical infrastructure and financing of private institutions and most importantly, most institutions are faced with the shortage of qualified and experienced teachers for qualitative learning.
We also agree that curriculum in architecture is exhaustive and never ending as it involves long hours, and rather perplexing with instructions that turn out to be diametrically opposite. On one hand if the lessons are so fascinating, the other might find it fraught with the mundane baggage. The student soon begins to view architectural instruction nebulous in character and wonder if there is any purpose in continuing with architecture at all. Besides the general complaint that, the fresh graduate is not equipped to meet the challenges of the profession. The young architect lacks professional competencies.
The endeavour at the Faculty of Architecture, Marwadi University, has always been to nurture a large number of creative and innovative minds. We also look forward to being a centre for design excellence to cater to the highly demanding design profession. Our focus has been on the learning environment to generate a sense of inquiry and expose students to the relationships between architectural decisions and technical proficiency along with the cultural and ideological predisposition.
We are indeed aware and conscious of the contemporary developments globally, while we also acknowledge that the cultural and regional identity be maintained to be able to contribute to the society. Our learning environment includes Outcome Based Learning, Outcome Oriented Assessment, Integrated and Applied Knowledge Systems, Professional Response and Participatory Education. Despite all odds our students, as student trainees at the infant stage of the institution have demonstrated their proficiency by reaching out to places such as Bangaluru, Pune, Mumbai and Jaipur to name a few and which indeed is a small beginning and promising.
