From the Director's Desk...
“When somebody asks me, what is architecture, I reply- Being in the profession of Architecture for so many years I still don’t know what architecture is, it’s just a feeling which cannot be expressed in words. Having said so, I am really happy because the day I know what is architecture, my curiosity towards it will come to an end which may stop me to explore it any further. Every day I find my own definition of architecture and that becomes my passion.”
The development of any country depends upon its infrastructure majorly, and the architects and planners are the people who not only built infrastructure but also they shape the environment and value the social, cultural, psychological and economical aspects of the country.
Dev Bhoomi Group of Institutions recognized the increasing demand for architects and planners and initiated the architecture program to produce highly skilled and creative architects for the new era. We ensure for a quality education associated with creativity, innovation and multi tasking capabilities along with the overall personality development of the students.
Dev Bhoomi School of Architecture is not just an institute for learning; rather it’s a place for experimenting new ideas and thoughts. I’m sure that our students will serve the society and humanity in a very innovative and sustainable way. I wish all the students a bright future and everlasting happiness.
