'Architecture is the honest pursuit of Art and Building Science. Combining the aesthetic to a highly technical anatomy of a structure is the essence of being an Architect. Being an extremely vast field, with aspects delving in not just design, planning, organization, but also construction, management, landscape and many more, Architecture is a course which poses a great challenge to be summed up in just a year. However, with the help of Industry experts and scholars, Cindrebay School of Design has formulated a course structure to help students explore this pathbreaking and creative subject!

This unique pedagogy will investigate the concepts of spaces, volumes, masses, voids and the play of light and shadow. The course structure is specially curated, to provide insights into the world of building technology and will endeavour to make the student aware of how any structure functions, considering all the aspects of strength, sustainability and unadulterated design. The curriculum also takes students through a variety of valuable lessons such as working drawings, site visits, live projects, seminars, guest lectures, workshops, art projects and much more. As an attempt to bridge the gap between theoretical learning and work profiles, Cindrebay also sheds special focus on latest Softwares equipping students with the knowledge to stand out and reach the top in any work environ. Softwares such as Autocad 2017, Sketchup-Pro, Lumion, Revit etc. are a major part of the syllabus thus helping budding designers stay updated with the latest advances in Architecture.

A beautiful amalgamation of building science, architectural history as well as modern softwares and industry practices, Cindrebay lays out a one of its kind educational programme! Inviting students from Civil Engineering backgrounds to pursue what could be a course that'll change their life, this course will help students unlock a new arena of career options after the graduation in Civil Enginering. Keeping in mind the kind of competition and skill sets required to attain success in today's fast-paced world, Cindrebay launches this course as a means to generate opportunities, riding which, students can achieve victory."
