Hands-on training and workshops play a major role in the learning processes particularly for subjects related to model making, building construction, climatology, and site surveying. Our institution organizes a variety of workshops for students, both on college campuses with outsourced experts and at external locations. Some of the major workshops conducted include natural building material workshops, funicular arch workshops, building services workshops, form finding workshops, and sunbath and shadow angle analysis workshops to name a few.
Seminars / Guest Lectures
Architecture is a field that involves better growth through knowledge sharing by practicing architects and experts, as the field is growing exponentially with continuously evolving market trends. Our Institution makes it a compulsory policy to have at least one guest lecture for each subject, in order to enrich our students learning experience with subject expert’s lectures and seminars.
Experiential learning, away from classroom is the best way for the students to explore latest & eminent buildings. Study tours provide first hand exposure on the design aspects, materials and techniques adopted. It helps students to broaden their understanding about the world & also encourages them to think critically. Our institution organizes many study tours in the form of case studies, site visits, studies pertaining to other coresubjects like History of Architecture, Energy Efficient Architecture, Building services. Apart from these, all the year students are taken for North India & South India tours at least once in their five years of learning period. In addition to these, visits related to fabrication and manufacturing processes, recycling and treatment techniques etc. are also encouraged.
Our Institution provides opportunities for the students to organise symposiums and at the same time participate in symposiums conducted in other colleges.

The students through their students council, take responsibility in aiding the organisation and participation for such events.

As a one-of-a-kind approach and a student initiative, guided by experienced faculties, the department magazine named HUNCH is released once in 3 months. The magazine elucidates important events in the department, students achievements, extra curricular activities along with national and international architecture news. Publishing of student’s works gives confidence to face the real audiences outside the classroom. Hunch publications provide not only a creative outlet for students but also provide opportunities to build their creative skills. Students interested in architectural journalism and photography, writing, editing and compiling techniques volunteer themselves for the magazine’s compilation, editing and printing processes.
