HOD's Desk

Architecture is a passion for me and I want to share my talent and vast experience of 28 years in this field with all my students to make them globally competent and visionary architects.

An architect’s job is to design a new building or structure. An architect thinks about what will make building strong, safe and easy to use and also what will it look like.

We are committed to Sustainability; Green Architecture, Energy Efficient and Structurally Safe Designs. Heading such an innovative academic community is an enriching experience. The responsibility as H.O.D is to adopt an approach that builds up confidence, make them creative, innovative, and strengthen their Architectural skills.

At the School of Architecture, Lingaya’s University, we have world class infrastructure and I want to share the practical knowledge of architectural field to each and every students of my department that I gained in 28 years. That is my motto and aim of my life.
