Architecture entails both the process and product of designing, planning, and constructing buildings and other physical structures. In certain cases, architects are responsible for predesign services such as the study of feasibility and environmental impact, selection of site, analysing cost, etc. Architects use software like CADD (Computer-Aided Design and Drafting) and BIM (Business Information Modelling) to develop construction designs and drawings. Architectural works, in the tangible form of structures like buildings, bridges, etc., often go on to become cultural symbols and are regarded as works of art.
With a vast history of architecture and an ever-growing urban infrastructure, India certainly has a demand for architects. Talented architects are required in multiple processes like construction, interior design, urban development, etc. As a stream of education, Architecture has secured acceptance in the country over the last decade. Some of Asia’s most respected colleges for architecture studies are among the top colleges for architecture in India.
In India, we have about 860 Architecture colleges offering full-time, part-time, distance education, and online courses. Aspiring candidates could choose the course of their liking from any of these colleges. IIRF ranks the top 25 government architecture colleges in India 2021.
