'Masters of Architecture - Environmental Architecture'
This is the first pioneering course in India to offer comprehensive curriculum in Environmental Planning and Sustainable Design. The intake is of 20 students for this course.
The emerging profession of architecture needs to reorient itself to meet the dreams of new and faster development and at the same time be sensitive to the needs and carrying capacity of the earth's natural environment. This curse proposes to give this orientation to the emerging architects. Architectural profession is a cornerstone of the construction industry. This industry largely influences the built development creating cities, infrastructure and homes. This emerging area of architectural profession is poised to see tremendous growth in the next decade.
In Indian context, the enactment of various environmental legislation such as the Energy Conservation Act, 2001 and Amendment to the Environment Protection Act, 1986, have laid the groundwork towards potential transformation of the construction industry sustainability. Through these landmark legislative enactments, the building codes and large developments are slated to change, requiring additional skills from the emerging architects. Some of these skills include energy design and auditing, environmental assessment, climatic design, Life cycle assessment and so on.

1. Climate Change and Global Warming
2. Ecological Degradation and Loss of Biodiversity
3. Energy Crisis
4. Air, Water and Land Pollution
The course gives hands on training on
1. Latest Planning -GIS and Building Energy Simulation software tools
2. Introduction to software and hands on capacity Building
