Bachelor of Architecture in Building & Construction Management is an undergraduate Architecture Engineering course. The degree is awarded after successful completion of a five years program or course that covers the study of management aspects and supervision techniques specific to the building industry while developing detailed knowledge about building and construction processes and materials. The five years duration also includes the apprenticeship which is usually in the last semester, which has to be done under a practicing architect. The B.Arch. (Building & Construction Management) degree program often combines the study of architecture, construction, liberal arts, mathematics, and science technology courses.

  • The basic eligibility criteria for pursuing a B.Arch. (Building & Construction Management) degree is qualifying 10+2 or equivalent examination, with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics with a reasonably high percentage of marks (minimum 50%) in the aggregate and clearing the different national and state level entrance exams such as Birla Institute of Technology and Science Admission Test (BITSAT) etc, conducted by different universities and colleges across the country.
  • Besides the entrance exam, one another exam i.e. National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) is conducted by the National Institute of Advanced Studies in Architecture (NIASA), Pune, which is a body of Council of Architecture (CoA). National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) is essential for getting admissions to the B.Arch. degree course at the major institutes or colleges of Architecture such as the NITs, IITs, etc. across the country.
