B.Arch.

V-SPARC School of Architecture offers a Bachelor degree program in Architecture approved by the Council of Architecture (CoA), New Delhi under the purview of the Architects Act of 1972. The selection of eligible candidates for the program is based on the marks obtained at the National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) by the CoA and VIT set criteria.

The program is designed in such a way that the students would progressively develop their theoretical knowledge in Architectural Design as well as equip themselves to solve real world problems at local, national, regional and global scenarios.

The program is offered on a Fully Flexible Credit System (FFCS) where, there are Program Core courses which are mandatory for all students and a basket of course-specific electives that are available across semesters as a part of interdisciplinary learning which is unique to the program.

The program is completely outcome based as the hands-on studio projects experience focuses on professionalism, ethics and gender equality through semesters and which culminates to a Capstone project at the end of the five-year program.

Industry focused curriculum with embedded internship, quickly enables placements in large firms of national and international reputation.

It emphasizes pragmatic learning approach, which is facilitated through guest lectures and workshops by the industry experts. The students address societal and environmental challenges to find sustainable solutions and to mitigate them through architectural intervention.
