Syllabus

The 190-credit undergraduate program leading to the degree of Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) incorporates a broad-based curriculum encompassing arts and sciences of creating spaces as well as critical contents of environments, urban and social resilience. Students are exposed to a variety of general subjects at the lower level, often with moderate specialization. At the higher level, the focus is on specific professional and academic competence. About 75 courses of the program are distributed into 10 equal semesters (two semesters/ year) over five years along with other programs of the university. Besides theoretical courses students are rigorously trained through sessional courses of architectural drawings and designs. The program as a whole consists of core courses, electives, specialized topics and a thesis (final design). Portfolio development for each studio based course in every semester is also an integral part of the program.
