It is the first book published by our college and highly appreciated by the Architectural fraternity.
Innovative and creative workshops and seminars are conducted all year round by the college. These events give exposure to the students thus increasing the creativity in us and help us make a stand in the competitive world.
Interactive seminars held with national and international speakers give us a vision of professional work which acts as a channel of knowledge. This helps in improving the academic performance of the students.
Not only book and pen but inclusion of cultural activities within the curriculum enhances the all-round performance of the students. The annual festival Tarash acts as a stage for students to display their talents.
Apart from academics we are also exposed to other art fields like music, dance and culturals which acts as a medium to better our creativity and helps us grow not only in academics but also grow as an architect for the future.
