Top 10 Architecture and Planning Institutes in India other than IITs and NITs


Admission to engineering colleges is one of the most sought-after options for starting a successful career in India. Every year, lakhs of students take the Joint Entrance Examinations (JEE) for admission to engineering courses.
One of the factors contributing to this fascination with engineering degrees is the ever-important job profile of an engineer.In specialised domains such as software or computer science, the demand for skilled workers has been steadily increasing. Another factor contributing significantly to this popularity is remuneration; it is estimated that Engineering has the highest monthly salary of any profession in India. Freshers starting out in the engineering domain can expect somewhere between 5 to 6 lakhs per annum as their salaries, with high chances of growth in a short period of time.
As we know Electrical, Mechanical, Software – are all well known domains of engineering that are much sought after, one of the other major domain within engineering is that of planning and architecture.
Architecture and planning courses in engineering often combine the creative and technical aspects of designing and building structures with a focus on sustainability and social responsibility. These programs typically award Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech) or B Planning degrees in Architectural Engineering or Civil Engineering with a specialization in Architecture.

How to take admission in a Architecture or Planning course?
Gaining admission to a B.Planning or B.Arch program in India involves a two-pronged approach: entrance exams and, in some cases, academic merit. The most common route is through entrance exams, with several national and regional options like JEE Main (Paper II) and the National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) testing your aptitude for drawing, critical thinking, and architectural knowledge. Some universities conduct their own entrance exams as well.
After the exam, a merit list is created based on your score. Some institutions might consider additional factors through counseling sessions or personal interviews. Finally, seats are allotted based on your rank and the available options. While entrance exams dominate the admissions process, a few institutions may offer a limited number of merit-based seats solely based on your 10+2 board exam performance. Remember, deadlines and exam formats vary, so make sure to thoroughly research the specific requirements for your desired program.
