Bachelor of Architecture

Duration : 5 years
Entry Requirement : Intermediate or equivalent with at least 2nd division + Entry Test (Math, Physics & Drawing)

Introduction

Architecture, the art and technique of designing and building, as distinguished from the skills associated with construction. The practice of architecture is employed to fulfill both practical and expressive requirements, and thus it serves both utilitarian and aesthetic ends. Although these two ends may be distinguished, they cannot be separated, and the relative weight given to each can vary widely. Because every society—whether highly developed or less so, settled or nomadic—has a spatial relationship to the natural world and to other societies, the structures they produce reveal much about their environment (including climate and weather, history, ceremonies, and artistic sensibility, as well as many aspects of daily life.

Mission Statement:

Architecture for Built Environment.

Program of Architecture offered at “The Institute of Southern Punjab (ISP)”, is dedicated to professional architectural education that flourishes through research, critical practice, using modern tools and community engagement.

Primary mission to prepare graduates to think, negotiate and collaborate through all genres of design; to direct diverse project teams; and to generate design artifacts and arguments with a contemporary culture and disciplinary resonance. Also program educates students, who contribute to the local and global community through the design, construction and interpretation of the built environment.
