CoA reforms architecture programme, allows exit in 3 years
NEW DELHI: The architecture programme is set for reform this year. On Tuesday, the Council of Architecture's (COA) ‘Minimum Standards of Architectural Education’ Regulations, 2020, were released. As per the changed norms, students will have the option of exiting the programme at the end of three years, with the university awarding an ‘appropriate’ degree.
In the newly-launched regulations, the choice based credit system has been introduced with practical hands-on training in the eighth and ninth semesters. There is stress on hands-on learning with study tours to cultural and historic sites. It also paves the way for an exchange programme with national and international universities.
As per the regulations launched by the minister of education, Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’, the new regulation focuses on bridging the gap between industry and academia.
Admission on NATA, Class 12
The admission process will be based equally on marks obtained in 10+2 exam and the National Aptitude Test in Architecture, or NATA.
The new regulation is in line with the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP), launched last month; as it offers a multi-disciplinary approach in courses offered. The new regulation also allows the semester exchange option, in flexibility to offer courses.
In another major reform, the regulation allows private practise and research for faculty members associated with architecture programmes. Teacher-training has been made mandatory before joining the course and the payscale to be followed will be as per government directive.
