Confusion and dilemmas are natural theses days in students as well as parents. So please do not get tensed and worried and think that you only have such confusion. There are many out there who are facing such things and therefore you have experts guiding you through excellent platforms like CareerGuide.com. Architecture is definitely a very good, demanding and professional course, there is no double though on this. Since you have confusion over what to choose between architecture, journalism, photography, etc. I would strongly recommend you to do an Aptitude Test, Psychometric Test. These tests are also available on CareerGuide.com.com and even you can do them at your home independently. Choosing a career path has never been simple and more over getting complex with the introduction of new courses, avenues and information over flow. I think you need to sit down and do a SWOT analysis, where academically you should spend time calmly in finding out what are your academic strengths, weaknesses, which subject you like the most and which one you hate. To choose a career and get successful you need to choose what you love and would love doing it for your whole life. If you are good at thinking, mathematics, drawing, etc. then Architecture course is good. If you are interested in research, investigation, meeting people, knowing how the world works, help people then journalism is good for you. Photography as a career is not that famous and sure way to stability in India. There are also very very less number of courses available for making a career in photography. As fasr as Architecture is concerned, I can surely tell you that it has tremendous scope and there are also employment opportunities in corporate as well as in entrepreneurship opportunities. Today apart from having mastery in architecture, it is very necessary to know about Project Management. Therefore if you choose Architecture, do not forget to do a Post Graduate course in Project Management. Project Management professionals having Civil and Architectural knowledge are in huge demand and currently industry is not able to get such qualified professionals. Therefore, I think you should do an assessment which will give you a perfect idea of what interests you and in what you can be successful in. Best Luck

Hi,


Greeting's for the day!!!

Architectsare the real creators of amazing buildings and structures. Skyscrapers in metro cities would not have been possible without them. While capitalism furthers the growth and prosperity of human race, tall buildings with beautiful designs and glory show the grandeur. The rebuilding of 'Twin Towers' collapses in 9/11 incident and other towers and structures shows the real dint of human talent and excellence, creativity and vision.


Required Personal / Professional Skills:
A person requires sound Interpersonal & Communication SKills, and immense physical stamina to get into the profession of architecture. He is expected to work on desk as well as on construction site. Excelent memory, and sound concentration level, flexibility, patience, team spirit, responsibility and accountability,etc are some common personality traits which are essential for professional success in architecture and design. But it is the right credentials in academics which matters the most in architecture.


Job Prospects:
Architects can work withe contruction companies wherein they are asked to serve as a designer. Initially, an architect is expected to understand specifica requirements of clients and strike a right balance between aesthetics and practicality. Additionally, an architect with skills can help clients by his ideas in terms of balancing the requirements of appearance, finanacial budget and time frame. Some architects even work independently and earn their livelihood through consultancy fees which entirely depends upon the skills and the profile as well as work experience.

Most of the jobs in architecture come up in government organizations such as Public Works Department, the Archaeological Department, Ministry of Defense, NAtional Building Organization, Town & Country Planning Organization, National Institute of Urban Affairs, Departments of Railways, Post and Telegraphs, Public Sector Undertakings, Housing and Urban Development Corporation, National Building Construction Corporation Ltd, etc. While some other organizations or bodies like State Departments, Housing Boards, Local Bodies for Construction Work, Builders, Architecture Firms, Consultants, etc also hire architects.


Top Architecture Colleges:
A number of colleges and institutes imaprting education in architecture have come up in lastsix decades and some of them have a global reputation. Some of leading colleges in architecture are:
1. School of Planning & Architecture, New Delhi
2. Punjab University, Chandigarh College of Architecture
3. School of Architecture CEPT, Navrangpura, Ahmedabad
