2nd government architecture college to be set up in Mumbai

Education News Of the 60 plus architecture colleges in the state, only one is a government college, while two others—Academy of Architecture Rachna Sansad in Mumbai and BKPS College of Architecture in Pune—are government-aided. “In view of the rise in demand in architecture, the state is planning to set up its own college. But they need to carry out a feasibility study. The new college will be designed on the lines of JJ College,” a source said.

Director, directorate of technical education (DTE), S K Mahajan and principal, Sir JJ College of Architecture, Rajiv Mishra, have been entrusted with the job, said an official. A government college in a professional course will ensure quality education, said a professor.

As architecture colleges in the state are not assessed for quality, the state is planning to introduce a grading system for the colleges. In a workshop organized by the DTE on Thursday, representatives from all architecture colleges will come together to finalise parameters for grading colleges. “We will study how the parameters of NAAC can be modified to include specific criteria for architecture colleges. Once the parameters are finalized, we will send it to the Council of Architecture for nod. No other states grade architecture colleges,” said a professor.
