About the Program

Architecture is the art and science of designing and building structures, or large groups of structures, in keeping with aesthetic and functional criteria. Architecture is the scientific art of making structures express ideas. It helps the man-made fit in harmony with the environment while promoting health and well-being, enriching lives aesthetically and spiritually, providing economic opportunities, and creating a legacy that reflects and symbolizes culture and traditions.

Bachelor in Architecture (B.Arch) in the School of Planning, Architecture, & Design Excellence, Hindustan Institute of Technology & Science, is a 5-year course approved by the Council of Architecture. The study and scope of our B Arch course are spread across different domains like Architectural Design, Materials and Construction, Architectural Graphics, Building Services, Allied Subjects Like Structures, and Electives Like Landscape / Interior Design / Construction Technology.

The B.Arch. syllabus and curriculum are constantly updated as per industry requirements. The learning method here at the School of Planning, Architecture, and Design Excellence includes hands-on sessions. Workshops, site visits, guest lectures, and webinars are conducted frequently to keep the students on par with the constantly evolving field of architecture. The students are encouraged to instigate the creative mind to appreciate various design values and to develop values of their own.

The SPADE imparts a wide variety of practical exposure to the students throughout the B.Arch course, including mandatory practical training for a semester.
