Academic Programmes

Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.)

Pedagogy

Since it focuses on “Learning by Making” the teaching program focuses on building professional capacity through real-life problems, workshops and interactions with renowned professional architects. The coursework, seminars and research assignments are aimed at developing creative and analytical abilities of students. KSAP cherishes the individual interests and abilities of its students.  Regular visits to building construction sites, galleries, and architectural exhibitions are organized in order to help expose our students to the immediate context that they are engaging with. This helps to increase their understanding of the multidisciplinary nature of architectural practice and the ground reality of any project. Annual study trips are organized for the students across the years, enabling them to engage, observe and respond to the varying urban or rural contexts that they are exposed to.

Organizational Structure

Teaching in all subjects is regularly monitored and is updated periodically in its Board of studies to keep up with changing industry demands.

Choice Based Curriculum

To enable each student to chart a unique course of study and realize his or her own individual potential, students can choose four electives from a wide range of elective courses. Spread over five years, the total number of credits is 234 and teaching hours are 257. To this extent the teachers are mentors whose role is to support individual students in their explorations and in their capacity-building endeavors.
