Architecture refers to the art and science of designing buildings and other physical structures. We often come across in our daily lives across beautifully designed modern buildings, large apartment complexes, big shopping malls, supermarkets, imposing commercial offices, etc. You will be surprised to know that all these imposing structures, urban landscapes and magnificent buildings are the handiworks of knowledgeable and qualified architects. Large complex structures that are intricately designed and offer a seamless combination of human ingenuity, creativity, vision, design and human intelligence are handiworks of architects who never fail to impress with their passion and art of designing something beautiful and useful on a large scale.
Additionally, architects are required to design buildings keeping all the safety and environmental concerns in mind. It is the primary reason architecture is considered to be a field which requires knowledge of different other engineering disciplines. However, please note that it is not a hard and fast rule that architecture engineers are only responsible for designing buildings. Depending upon his/her qualification, interests and aptitude, an architectural engineer may be qualified to enter careers in architectural engineering, engineering technology and construction management.
Architecture as a profession enjoys a unique distinction of combining high level of job satisfaction with good financial rewards. Architecture in fact has become a synonym for change, metamorphosing into dealing with urban planning, environment conservation to designing a host of other things beyond physical structures. Advent of new technologies and trends in designing of buildings in addition to extra emphasis on infrastructure development has further augmented the scope and relevance of qualified architectural engineers.
However, it is important that you pursue this profession only if you are interested in design and the specifics of architecture. Avoid taking admission in this stream charmed by career prospects and big money it usually guarantees. It is often seen that people who are interested in design and other specifics of architecture tend to get easily disenchanted from pursuing this course, often leaving their studies after a year and wasting their time and money. On the other hand, if you are genuinely interested in studying architecture and feel fascinated by thought of making your visions and plans come true by applying knowledge of engineering forms, ventilation, lighting, structural systems and building codes among other, you need to start preparing seriously for competitive entrance tests.
If you are genuinely interested in architecture and have finally decided to make a career in it, then there could be two distinct possibilities. You attained a rank good enough to get admitted into the best architectural institutes in Madhya Pradesh or any other Indian state for that matter. Second possibility is that your rank in the entrance test does not guarantee you a place in top grade B.Arch colleges in Madhya Pradesh or any other Indian state. Top level institutes enjoy an impeccable reputation of providing an education that is sound and technical in approach. Well-established institutes are also known for providing high quality placement.
Mediocre colleges on the other hand may not have the requisite faculty or infrastructure that matches the top class architecture colleges. Seeking admission in such colleges, however, is not all doom and gloom as your own interest, preference and passion for architecture can help you become a top notch professional.
