School of Architecture & Planning (SAP)
The School of Architecture and Planning at Sharda University believes in a world and built an environment that is fundamentally cohesive and interconnected. It believes that buildings are much more than mere settings for human actors. It believes that our built environment actively shapes who we are. It believes in producing involved experts who want to assume significant roles in producing environments that are ecologically, economically, socially and culturally sustainable.
The world is moving at a pace more rapid than ever before, and the architectural professionals of tomorrow need to be sensitive towards the social responsibilities of environmental intervention that are an inevitable consequence when it comes to the actual practice of architecture. Green Architecture and Sustainability are not just buzzwords, but a vital component of the built environment.
Learning at School of Architecture and Planning extends beyond conventional classroom instruction, preparing students to engage with the larger world. Emphasis is laid on rigor and self-reflexivity within the course curricula. Students are allowed to build their own unique pathways through the course, thereby developing and sharpening themselves as professionals with multiple expertise.
The faculty comprises academicians from renowned institutions such as School of Planning & Architecture, New Delhi, National Institute of Design, as well as leading Architectural practitioners and Planning professionals from all over the country. Our committed and energetic faculty, staff and students form a diverse, creative, and collaborative community within Sharda University.
The School has an interdisciplinary approach wherein the students have the opportunity to tailor their course to their needs, thereby they could be studying photography, choreography, visual communication or any other elective as a part of the larger architecture course.
Established in 2011, School of Architecture and Planning (SAP) has grown by nearly ten times, from less than 40 to a little more than 400 in terms of students’ strength supported by a matching faculty strength of over 40, including Visiting Faculty members from the industry.
Both the B Arch and M Arch programmes of SAP are duly approved by the Council of Architecture, Government of India with intakes of 120 and 20 respectively.
The curriculum offered is upgraded from time to time to keep pace with the overall development of industry and in line with the best practices followed in US and UK Universities.
Our Board of Studies is guided by some of the most respected academicians and practising professionals of India.
A multi-Cultural environment with a vibrant network of global students gives the chance to interact beyond conventional peer groups and help them get transformed into global citizen.
As an essential component of students’ learning experience, they are taken to numerous guided site visits and educational trips in and around Noida, Greater Noida, Delhi, NCR, Agra, Bhopal, Goa, Sikkim & Darjeeling, Pondicherry, Dharamshala, Mumbai etc. and also outside India, like Dubai ,Abu Dhabi & Moscow etc.
Already, SAP students’ work has been appreciated at the national level as they won prizes in NASA and ZoNASA competitions.
SAP has a highly qualified, experienced and cohesive faculty group who enjoy their academic and professional activities with equal dedication and passion. Through the recently launched Consultancy and Research Cell of SAP, every faculty member is engaged in one or more projects.
SAP intends to involve students in SAP’s consultancy projects at the earliest.
