  • If you pull off studying architecture and working in a few firms, you can actually build a successful career in it as it is one of the highest-paid professions.
  • Architecture is not just one course, instead many other aspects of studies are embedded while studying architecture like History, Material Science, Art, Physics, etc.
  • It is a life-changing profession. When you design a building, you are not only on the verge of changing your life but also your client who relies his happiness on your hands.
  • This course is not only theoretical but also practically important or I should say practically more important. So, it gets more exciting during the learning process itself.
  • If you love traveling, then this profession provides a scope of travel and work as you need to travel and watch different kinds of buildings which will help you in designing.
