Tours and site visits for architecture and interior design courses

Along with the regular academic programme the school encourages the students to have hands-on experience by conducting various site visits to manufacturing units and company showrooms related to the interior designing industry. Site visits to various ongoing architectural projects related are also conducted to help students gain practical knowledge.

The students are taken on a compulsory week-long study tour to significant tourist places of either cultural or historical importance. The students are made to understand the evolution of concepts and themes based on the relevance of the site.

The students undertake documentation work of the interiors of the hotel where they stay, involving the hotel lobby spaces, reception, banquets, restaurants, twin rooms, suites and other such areas during the site visits. This documentation work helps not only in understanding the concepts but also helps in enhancing students’ anthropometrics and ergonomics knowledge.

Choice-based Credit System

A student can select course/s from domain electives, open electives, if available in the model framework for program structure of the course. Open elective course is from an unrelated discipline/subject with an intention to seek exposure in that discipline/subject.

Amity University offers the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS) in its academic curriculum in its endeavor to provide quality education. Under this new system the students can register for courses according to their interests and academic abilities. CBCS allows students to decide their academic plan and permits them to alter it, if required, in their academic progression.

CBCS permits student to:

  • Choose electives from a wide range of courses.
  • Pick up additional courses and acquire more than required number of credits.
  • Adopt an interdisciplinary approach in learning.
  • Enhance skill/employability by taking up project work, entrepreneurship and vocational training.
  • Ample opportunities to go for inter-disciplinary courses.
