  • There are some universities in India offering B.Arch, which is equivalent to B.Tech. The seats in this course are also offered basing on your rank in entrance test. Some part of architecture is being taught in BE/B.Tech Civil branch also . For admission you have to complete your +2 and get qualified in entrance test.

    Job opportunities are there both in India and abroad. Like a Chartered Account, you can also have your own company for serving the industry in Architecture.

  • Most of the leading universities in India do conduct the Arcitectural - engineering course along with other streams such as Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, Metallurgical etc. However, there lies some difference between the former course and the later courses with respect to consumption of time. Where as the duration of B.Arch course is around five and half years, the remaining streams have been designed to complete the courses in four - year duration.
    The stretching of the duration of the course is because of extensive training in advanced architecture. The aspirants are provided with suitable inputs how the basic foundation of architecture can be strengthened with the materials of varying composition. Though a civil - engineer is conversant with some of the tools employed by Architectural - engineer, they would lack the specialised knowledge essential to be a successful Architectural - engineer.
    The best institutes offering B.Arch courses are IIT Mumbai, BIT Meshra and BIT Pilani etc.
