The NMIMS's Balwant Sheth School of Architecture (BSSA) focuses on various modes of architectural education, research and practice. It emphasizes on the ever changing ethos, behavioral sciences, tools and techniques, and assimilates all in contemporary design expression. The students would be offered holistic exposure and understanding through Art, History, Technology, Architectural Design and Construction process.
With the legacy of 40 years, NMIMS has grown to be not only one of the top-10 B-schools in India but also emerged as a multi-disciplinary, multi-campus university at Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, Indore, Shirpur, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Dhule (upcoming) and Chandigarh (upcoming). It has 16 constituent schools that include Management, Family Business, Engineering, Pharmacy, Architecture, Commerce, Economics, Law, Science, Liberal Arts, Design, Performing Arts, Mathematical Science, Hospitality, Agriculture and Distance Learning. In addition, we have nine Centres of Excellence as well at the University.
Today, more than 17000+ students and 750+ full time faculty members are part of India's most sought after academic community.
Having completed my undergraduate studies at BSSA, I gained exposure to architecture as well as urban design. Complementing classes allowed me to explore materials and details. This structure prepared me for my career and future ahead. I was well equipped and confident in taking on a variety of projects. I have been working as a Junior Architect at Architecture BRIO for 1.5 years. During this time I have worked on architecture, interior design and urban design projects.
Studying in BSSA has opened up various avenues. It made me well equipped with the skills required for an International internship, academic involvement and entrepreneurship relevance. The practice of upgrading ourselves at regular basis was inculcated in the course which made us pertinent.
Our college has a great approach towards design. The exercises conducted during the lectures didn't restrict my thought process and helped to keep an open mind about different approaches towards the projects. This aided me to adapt to various situations that present themselves at work (within India & abroad).
