Scope of career in Architecture in India

The scope for making a successful career as an architect is vast. And especially at the present day and world when the space is getting reduced everyday the service of an Architect is most sought after. High rise structures are increasingly on demand, and along with that the demand of sustainable structure is also increasing. From the initial stage of landscape desinging to interior designing the job of an architect has become very important.

Again with added stress on environmental planning by corporate houses, government and individuals too the the service of a good architect has become cruicial to any structural planning.

Althouh getting the first break as an architect is tough in this field when a fresh graduate starts working with reputed firms as an apprentice or with reputed architects they can easily make their impressions. Then it helps to improve the resume of a fresher and then getting other projects is not much difficlut.

With smaller cities and towns opting for high-rise structures the scope of Architecture study is ever increasing. So getting independant projects is not much tough for a qualified architect.

How much a fresh Architecture Graduate can expect.

A fresh graduate in Architecture can expect minimum 2 to 2.5lakhs per year. And depending on the person's commitment, and sincereity to a project a fresh graduate too can expect more than this. After completion of B.Arch from reputed institutes and having an authoritative personality will give certain edge to a candidate over others.

The salary or remuneration varies from place to place or project to project. Real Estate companies in metros offer very lucrative remunerations to fresh graduates too. The remunerations are even more better for those whose service is specialised in software designing. Working at an architectural firm may give one lesser remuneration but it gives bigger exposure to different kinds of clients and projects and hence the architect gets to enhance their experience.

It is quite informative an article on architecture field. One can also pursue masters degree in planning from India's top institutes like IIT Kharagpur where the seeds of planning in India is said to be laid. This gives more exposure to the practical side of construction and architecture, like feasibility studies, block cost estimates etc which are indispensable components of any project.
