Let’s Start Imagining and Creating

The 5-year program equips students with necessary skills to practice architecture while understanding the foundation and technical aspects, and deploying skills in a creative and imaginative manner.

From the very first day of college, you can explore the field and break through creative boundaries, while gaining hands-on experience that offers the foundation and tools to succeed.

Be inspired by leading academicians and professionals in the field of architecture!

The Profession and Education of Architecture in India is regulated by the Council of Architecture, a national statutory body, and followed by the various Universities & Schools of Architecture across the country.

The course involves about 20 mandatory subject streams along with optional electives that enrich knowledge and serve as pre-specialisations. The course also includes a semester of practical training, a compressed avatar of apprenticeship.

Typically, the early years focus on skill building and knowledge sharing, while the later years focus on the application of the knowledge with the skills, and thereon to further exposure & specialization.

The syllabus for the entire course in Architecture is available at the website of the University of Pune -

At SMEF's Brick School of Architecture in Pune, we club the subjects into three broad streams, that we call Laboratories or Studios – namely The Thinking Lab, The Construction Lab and The Design Lab.

For each progressing year, there is a mix of subjects under each laboratory / studio. This is planned as per the stage the students have reached and knowledge acquired at each level.

The content of every subject is designed to trigger thinking, develop technical rules & skills, and then urge students to explore the subject for their understanding through practical application, experimentation or creation.

In addition, BRICK School as a premier design institution offers a variety of electives from liberal arts & sciences ranging across the streams above. Students are free to choose the electives as per their inclination towards a particular subject.

These would be conducted by leading artists, designers, craftsmen and other professionals invited from their fields of expertise.

Electives are seen as an integral part of the course, as they enrich and expand the students' horizon and value-add to the core architecture design program.
