A process based approach is adopted while imparting the Design Education. We encourage Innovation in teaching methodology. We lay stress on interactive sessions, Seminars, and Workshops not only Lectures and Design Studios.
We have healthy interactions between industry and academics to bridge the gap between Design and Deliverance. A real time approach with hands-on experience is what Students at DC School of Architecture and Design go through.
A residential Campus gives students to get to know, spend time with classmates, Professors and other academic advisors. It also offers a place to go for ideas and answers to questions that may arise in their academic or life journey.
A campus life is social and an academic experience, we advocate a balance in order to maximize success in both areas.”
