India’s 10 Best Architecture & Interior Colleges 2020

Architecture/Interior students and professionals are often the pictures of zealous hyperactivity, jumping from one learning experience to the next. Which really is no wonder, because this field offers endless alleys to turn into and wander around, yet seemingly such little time. Most architecture colleges in India offer low flexibility in streamlining your own education path, which means that detailed knowledge-seeking often needs to take place outside of the institution. Since your time and money spent outside college is limited and valuable, it’s important to have some insight into the world of architecture learning in India, so you can maximize your learning!

Probably the most critical point in the life of a future architect is to take up subjects you feel strongly attracted towards for additional learning. This is easy since the academic rigour of an architectural education will expose you to as many fields and techniques as humanly possible. All you have to do is pick the ones which interest you more than the others, and you will find workshops and mentors willing to help you delve further into it! Also, it’s valuable to explore technologies which expand your potential as a designer. Learning skills like BIM, creative coding, vernacular building technologies, or even how to write a research paper give you a larger toolkit to experiment with and allow for a confident and consistent flow of creativity and communication. 

Catering to all the needs of architecture professionals of today, various colleges across the country have started on their journey of imparting the best pharma related education to the masses.
