It is basically the theory and practicals of planning, designing and construction of different types of physical structures. Students who has an interest in designing and building things can develop their skills through this course. B Arch is an extensive course which covers all the aspects of architecture. There are many similarities to the syllabus of civil engineering. But, this one is more deep.

One should have better knowledge in mathematics to join this course. Getting admission to Bachelor of Architecture depends not only on the 12th standard marks. But also the score in NATA exam( National Aptitude Test in Architecture). NATA exams includes questions from physics, chemistry, mathematics, logical reasoning and general aptitude. Approximately 30,000 students attends NATA exam each year.
