Career as a Architect



Construction is one of the fastest growing sectors in Indian economy. In the last few decades our economy has witnessed hectic and massive construction activities, new structures have been raised, and townships have evolved. All this has importantly led to creation of avenues for those interested in making a career in architect. Architects are the licensed professionals trained in the art and science of building. Architecture engineering is one of the top career choices made by students in India. There are multiple opportunities in this field for architects equally in private and public sectors. Modern architecture demands that the buildings and structure do not exist in vacuum and so the architect has to bear the surrounding environment in mind, care about the existing skyline and yet care about the comforts and expenses of his clients.

If you want to be an architect you should be creative and have good visualization skills. Not only do you need to be able to create designs for buildings and other structures, you need to be able to see, in your mind's eye, what they will look like once they are built. Since architects have to describe their ideas to other people including clients and colleagues, you must have strong communication skills. The ability to think critically will help you solve problems that inevitably arise during most projects.
