Architecture Engineering

Course – Architecture Engineering  – Shelter is indefinitely one of the most basic need of the human kind. We all need roof above our heads to perform our day to day activities. Most of the places we see around us were in fact was designed by some or the other architect / Architecture Engineering . Professionally they work on both private and public projects, design both indoor and outdoor places and at the same time responsible for all the places around us.

An Architecture Engineering can be paid to design anything that can be built over the earth such as shopping malls , complexes, flats, buildings, football stadiums etc. An architect forms the most important part of any huge construction company where he gives the client and also the company information and idea about the area to select, ground level information etc, in simple terms he has to perform all background checks before construction. These people often join hands with people in some matching occupations to work with such as planners, interior designers, civil engineers etc.

Eligibility of Architecture Engineering:

To appear in any of the entrance examination of undergraduate engineering courses, it becomes compulsory that the student must have passed the higher secondary school certificate examinations with the subjects specialized in Physics, Chemistry & Maths. However some courses demand the need of Biology also which may or may not be considered. The percentage requirements are conditional and they vary according to the university or college sometimes even depending on the state which you apply.


Generally, any Bachelor of Engineering in India will span a duration of 4 full academic years which will include 8 semesters i.e; 2 semesters each year at the end of which an university theory cum practical examination for the respective subjects will be conducted. At the end of the final year a final project becomes compulsory, internships and mini projects which are to be done by the student vary from one university to the other. As far as the studying of subjects are concerned, it depends on the syllabus of each university that how much main subjects it allots per semester but a minimum of five subjects is expected to be written as theory examination conducted at the end of every semester.

Admission Process:

Option 1:

Merit seats- admission through Common Entrance Test conducted by respective state examination board/ college / university.

Option 2 :

Payment seats offered by the respective Colleges / Universities.

The above are the options through which an Architecture engineering admission could be done, you will have to select the most appropriate college/university in which you want to get into and then obtain the college details, relevant contact phone number and visit the institution for further enquirers.


Each university has its own fees structure though, we would like to present to you a generalized scenario. Private universities will cost you around 150,000 to 300,000 (1.5 to 3 lakh) rupees per student per year . Public university on an average will cost between 75,000 to 150,000 rupees per student per year. Living expenses will cost you depending on the location of the university like in cities, it will cost you more and your style of living. Generally, this expenditure may cost you around Rs.1 lac excluding your tuition fees.
