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.
