Hi Abhishek,

First, congrats on your result..at this stage, you have a bit fair chance of getting into SPA Delhi. even if it is for planning and you want to go for architecture, get into SPA Delhi, because internal upgradations do happen in every college. if not that, please opt for NIT's. all i can say is SPA bhopal is a new college. Choose NIT bhopal anyday before SPA bhopal because the faculty is more experienced over there.

If you have no issues regarding distance of the place from your home town, then you can choose NIT trichy. being from one of the nit's i can say this is one of the best amongst them.

PLZ GUIDE ME.............

What is the difference between architecture and planning?At my rank MAYBE there is a chance that I may not get architecture but Planning (at NIT Bhopal)So if I don't get B.Arch. should I opt for B.Planning?

What are the job opportunities after doing B.Planning?

Are these jobs well paid?

Can I get architecture in NIT bhopal after taking Planning through internal upgradations at a later stage?

How positive are the chances for internal upgradations?

PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP ME OUT......AS I AM VERY DESPERATE AND NEED TO TAKE A DECISION IMMEDIATELY.....

Hey Riny,
You surely got a lot of questions. First and foremost, architecture is the core branch that teaches you how to design buildings, while planning is the field where you are taught how to deal with designing cities. This, i am explaining it to you in the most layman terms.

Next, yes you can opt for B.planning, however, dont think it is a grade lesser course than architecture, both are important and good careers in their own way.

Talking about jobs, as long as there are buildings being built and cities being founded, there are jobs for architects and planners. However, in this field there is no such mechanism as placement system at work. If at the end of the course, you are talented for the architect, you shall be picked. About the pay, i can assure you that the initial years are a bit of a struggle but eventually it is a very well paid job.

Internal upgradations do take place in NIT bhopal which depends on vacancy, which are usually there for a lot many people do change their minds after joining the course.

And finally, relax, and enjoy the process. and of course, all the best for counselling.

SPAs are far more better than any NIT.

Being it Delhi, Vijaywada or Bhopal, among NITs Trichy is the best...

Ofcourse 'var'. You know the 'best'.

However the definition of 'far more better' differs from person to person.

And about SPA Bhopal v/s NIT Bhopal, i am talking after watching both of them.

But then, you know the 'best'.

Hey every college is new at once and the infrastructure development takes time.

But being a student i can say curriculum of all SPAs is same which is quite better than NIT cirriculum for sure.

And you must see this year CCB councelling miss 'shorbana' to determine urself whose the best.

And how many people agree with me......

Hi.

I'm not sure whether this is the time to ask but i have to make a decision between planning in SPA Delhi and Comp Sc. (engg.) at HBTI Kanpur.

What should i opt for, considering i'm interested in both fields?

I'm actually more inclined towards SPA, hard to convince parents though.

Can anyone tell me about the placements and job profile? Any help would be welcome.

Thanks!

  I have received an offer from SAP,Chennai and also Oxford Brookes University,United Kingdom. Which one do you think is better?

 

How important is a B.Arch degree from India?

Many people tell that its better to do Bachelors in India, true or false?
