MBS School of Planning & Architecture: Industry Ready Architects through Extensive Design Practices

Prof. V.K. Bugga,DirectorIn Architecture, the marriage of art and pragmatism results from its creative potential and application of theories learnt with due practice over time. Hence, exploring design problems into greater depth and challenging the creative expediency of students is the need of the hour in architectural studies, which is particularly addressed by MBS School of Planning and Architecture (MBA SPA). Mandating a series of practice sessions at its Design Studio, MBS SPA students harness their creative stints into concrete structures of significance and become industry ready.

Established by the ACME Educational Trust in 2009 to impart Architectural Education, MBS SPA is an ISO 9001:2015 certified institute approved by Council of Architecture, AICTE and affiliated to GGSIPU, Delhi. Such certification and approvals are a reason why MBS SPA is a popular placement destination for top-notch companies such as ARCOP, Design Plus, CCBA and others, hiring students at packages ranging up to Rs.5.5 lakh per annum. MBSSPA in the last two batches (2015-16 and 2016-17) has given toppers (Gold Medalist) to the GGSIPU, thereby making a mark amongst architectural colleges of Delhi NCR.

Delivering a balance between quality education and industry
oriented approach, MBS SPA offers exclusive five-year B.Arch program encompassing all that an Architecture student requires entering the industry as professionals. Known for its continuous comprehensive evaluation with regular assessment prescribed by the university curriculum, MBS SPA manages to stand apart from the rest of the colleges in its teaching methodology, a combination of lucid (faculty prepares a structure for a lecture and use A/V model and models to explain the concepts to students) but rigorous pool of activities strengthening its pedagogy.

Pushing the Limits
Key infrastructural facilities such as Computer Laboratory, Carpentry and Model Making Workshop, Surveying and Leveling Laboratory, Climatology Laboratory, Building Materials Laboratory & Construction Yards for practical training are a boon for students toning their mind muscles. MBS SPA’s well drafted Design Studio exercises endow a careful selection of design problems that are carefully mixed with few short and innovative design problems to challenge the creative thinking ability of students in a time bound manner. No doubt the faculty members are so meticulous in enabling the students the right kind of knowledge with their constructive concept building
and interactive learning sessions.

From regular updation of pedagogical skills to guest lecture series, design competitions and debates, MBS SPA provides a platform for its students to divulge in pre placement talk, presentations, conference, regular seminars and workshops to interact with the best of the architectural minds. Additionally, regular site visits and study tours to different cities offer an extra edge to student’s mundane learning with exposure to vernacular architecture. Its training and placement cell gives effective solutions for suitable internship and job opportunities for its students post identifying students’ potential and mapping their competencies, cataloging the database of students (their specialization, interests and their academic performances), providing interlink for the enthusiastic talent ready to explore new horizons alongside the growing requirements of the corporate world, molding the students according to industry requirements, and carrying out career counseling for students.

Promises for Growth
Situated in a well-connected subcity Dwarka, its two acres sprawling campus houses one of the well stocked libraries, spacious studios, lecture rooms with Audio-Visual facilities, seminar hall with a seating capacity of 100, Research and Documentation Centre, and labs & workshops. With plans to expand its academic offerings by adding more programs on Art, Design and City Planning, MBS SPA has not only marked its presence in the education sector but dreams of giving the country some of the leaders in Architecture industry.
