Architects are the people behind the design, planning and construction of beautiful buildings and related physical structures we see on regular basis. However, it would be wrong to assume that architects are only responsible for design and construction of physical structures. Their knowledge and expertise is also required when it comes it comes to solving issues pertaining to physical structures and man-made environment. The scope and employments prospect in this dynamic and exciting discipline is tremendous in India. However, in order to be a qualified and competent architect you have to spend some time and money pursuing B. Arch (Bachelor of Archaeology) degree from Best Architecture institutes in Lucknow or for that matter top architectural college located anywhere else in the country. The duration of B. Arch degree program is five years i.e. it is five years long undergraduate level Degree course.

There are two semesters each year meaning that there will be altogether 10 semesters. The academic program is divided into two stages. The first stage (semesters 1 to 6) is a full time study stage. As soon as you complete your sixth semester, you will be required to undergo practical training which is of six months duration. Students have to gain practical experience during these 6 months. The second phase starts after the completion of practical training session mentioned above. After 9th semester, thesis work is involved in B.Arch. course.

Also, only those candidates are considered eligible for B. Arch who has Mathematics as the main subject at intermediate level. What it means is that a student is eligible to pursue B. Arch irrespective of his streams. What it means is that a student may have passed 10+2 in arts, science or commerce streams, he /she can pursue B. Arch provided Math was one of the main subjects in intermediate.
However, it is of utmost important to note that you are no more eligible for B. Arch if you are not from the science stream. The CoA (Council of Architecture) has issued a new mandate.
