Welcome to the Department of Architecture at BNCA!
The department offers a five-year integrated, Under-Graduate program leading to the Degree of Bachelor in Architecture – B. Arch. This course is designed and detailed as per the norms of the Council of Architecture, DTE Mumbai, AICTE and is affiliated to the Savitribai Phule Pune University. This course has been running since the inception of the college in 1994. There is a sanctioned intake of 160 students per year for B. Arch.
BNCA follows the admission process prescribed by Admission Regulating Authority, Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) for admission to B. Arch at the First year level along with the rules laid down by the Council of Architecture. Details of the admission process can be found on the www.mahacet.org and www.dtemaharashtra.gov.in website.
In the course of five years, students are trained in various subjects including Architectural Design, Building Technology and Materials, Theory of Structures, Research in Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Design, Project Management, etc. The course is designed so as to afford explorations and experimentation in the teaching and learning processes.
Faculty members teaching at the under graduate level are trained to handle the complexities of teaching and dealing with the young aspiring students who enter the field with little knowledge about the same. At B. Arch level, students are encouraged to develop analytical thinking, reasoning, and creating a style of their own through travel and on-site explorations in addition to classroom teaching.
Various career opportunities open up to an Architect upon graduation. Though BNCA students find good placements in offices across the world, we encourage an entrepreneurial spirit in our students so that they soon set up their own practices. We also encourage our students to take up further specialized studies and expose them to possible avenues of advanced education in architecture. BNCA’s Post- Graduate Departments and the PhD Research Centre offer quality education to aspirants of higher degrees.
Becoming an Architect presents an opportunity to create a healthy, aesthetically pleasing and well planned living and working environment for the people and society. It synthesizes science and art to mould the built environment functionally precise, climatically responsive, energy conscious and aesthetically appealing. It is one of the most satisfying professions that students can opt for!
