Southern California Institute of Architecture, SCI-Arc (Los Angeles, California, USA) - A truly amazing architecture institute that provides a great opportunity to develope yourself as a well rounded architect.

Greeting's for the day!!!

Architects are the real creators of amazing buildings and strurtures. Skyscrapers in metro cities woul not have been possible without them. While capitalism furthers the growth and prosperity of human race, tall buildings with beautiful designs and glory shows the grandeur.

Job Prospects:

Architects can work with construction companies whwrein they are asked to serve as a designer. Initially an architect is expectde to understand specific requirements of clients and strike a right balance between aesthetics and practicality. Addditionally, an architect with skills can help clients by his ideas in terms of balancing the requirements of appearance, financial budget and time frame. Some architects even work independently and earn their livelihood through consultancy fees which is entirely depends upon the skills and the profile as well as work expereince.

Most of the jobs in architecture come up in government organizations. Builders, Architectural Firms, Consultants also hire architects.

Architects working independently have ample scope in terms of earning. However, the inherent hazard with independent practice is that the professional undergoes lots of work as he alone has to plan details of sizes, specification and estimates the cost of the structure. Specialization works well for bettre prospects in architecture as it is a matter of requirement.
