THE CREDIT SYSTEM (for all UG and PG Programs):


The University has introduced credit system of study for all the Under Graduate and Post Graduate programes
for all the students admitted from the Academic Year 2008-09. The prominent features of the credit system are the
process of continuous evaluation of a students performance, and a flexibility to allow the student to progress at
an optimum pace.
Each Academic Program has a certain number of credits which describe its weightage. A students performance is
measured by the number of credits that he/she has completed satisfactorily. A minimum grade point average is
required to be maintained for satisfactory progress.
Each subject (component) has a certain number of credits which reflect its weightage. The credits are evaluated as
under:(a)

For all theory subjects, one credit per lecture/tutorial per week per
semester will generally be adopted.
(b) One studio hour per week per semester will be assigned one credit.
(c) General Proficiency (GP) will be assigned two credits.
(d) Each Sessional in theory will be assigned Two/Four(elective subjects) Credits.
3.1

The semester examination for the odd semesters shall ordinarily be held in the month of December/January and
for the even semesters in the month of May/June, on such dates as may be fixed by University authority. The
chairperson of the department should ensure that 100% syllabus is covered in each subject before the Semester
Examination.

3.2

A faculty member shall be appointed as a course-coordinator by the Chairperson of the department who shall
have the full responsibility for conducting the sessional tests, coordinating the work of evaluation with other
faculty members involved in the course and awarding of grades.
In case of perceptible deviation in the awards given by different teachers of the same course, the course
coordinator will moderate the awards by calling meeting of the teachers associated. However where a single
teacher is associated with the course, moderation of awards to be done in consultation with the chairperson of the
department.

3.3

For the time being the existing system of centralized examination will be followed for conducting the Semester
Examination. However the system may be reviewed as the University grows and more and more number of
departments/courses/students are added to it.

3.4

The grade awarded to a student in any particular subject will be based on the performance of the student
evaluated throughout the semester. The syllabus of the Sessional test will be what is covered in that particular
term. The Semester Examination will be based on the entire syllabus.

3.5

The grades will be displayed on the notice board of the department by the Chairperson before forwarding it to the
Examination Branch.

3.6

The Chairperson of the department shall forward the awards/grades to the Examination Branch within a week
after the semester ends and examination process starts. The evaluated answer sheets of sessional tests are to be
given back to the students. The Examination Branch will keep the evaluated answer sheets of the semester
examination for at least one year.

Grade Point Average for all the completed semesters at any point of time.
The CGPA is calculated on the basis of all pass grades, except audit courses, obtained in all completed semesters.

CGPA=

(Course credits x Grade point) for courses with pass grade except audit courses

CONCEPTUAL BACK GROUND


Architecture is a subtle amalgam of extracts from Arts, Humanities, Technology and Sciences dealing with Man and his
Habitat. Catering to the intangible sense of fulfillment of human aspirations and the need for meeting the intangible
requirements of order and beauty and the manifestation of the civilization it caters to, architecture ends up as a complex
study of inter relationships of Man, Space and Time. Our physical surroundings are an out come of architectural inputs at
all levels of the region, the city, the neighborhood, the individual plot, in all its various elemental divisions of landscape,
urban design, roads, street furniture, buildings and all that we see around us.
The training of an architect, thus, requires an educational programme that covers the development of skills, the
appreciation of techniques and the awareness of the intangibles that constitute and effect our spatial organizations. There
is the need to first of all divert the mindsets of the students coming from the science background to the techno-aesthetic
environment of architecture. Secondly, the training for the building of architects requires the inculcation of a high level
sense of responsibility as the graduation programmes permits the students to acquire a license to practice. The training
programme also requires subtle balance of inputs from subject related to Arts, Humanities, Science and Technology. These
considerations form the backdrop in the formulation of this syllabus for the Bachelor of Architecture Course.
COURSE

STRUCTURE

The Bachelor of Architecture programme of ten semesters is divided into tiers. The first tier comprising six semesters is a
core course programme of compulsory subjects designed to train a student to act as an assistant in the office of a
practicing architect in the seventh semester that comprises six month of practical training. The second tier comprising four
semesters is a training programme constructed to cater to the building up of a decision making professional. In second
tier, the first semester i.e. the seventh semester of programme is dedicated to practical training in which the students get
training to approach offices for a six month placement and then acquire the information and knowledge of the practical
world of architectural practice. The eighth and ninth semesters offer numerous electives to cater to the development these
students self assessed professional caliber in different areas of architecture. The final, tenth semester is dedicated to a
thesis project in which the students get an opportunity to explore and project their inherent capabilities and prove that
they are capable of handling architectural projects individually.
