DIRECTOR’S MESSAGE

PROF. AR. CHANDRAN REKHA JETTY,
Director


Education in Architecture and design in current century is evolving at a rapid place. It will look very different from what it looked like a decade ago. Increasingly, students and family members are realizing about high design research projects in collaboration with professionals, public entries and partners from industry. More and more, these collaborative enterprises have begun to challenge designers to further enhance their ability to integrate diverse and often unfamiliar array of skills and knowledge. Here at Nitte SOA, we strive to be at the forefront of changes that will enable the best and brightest students to pursue entrepreneurial initiatives, to lead creative terms, and to accelerate innovation. Through design research, our aim is to bring about healthy sustainable communities, drive advancement in building technology, and connect our research with industry in order to create new economic opportunities for the citizens of this country, state, the region, and beyond.

Nitte SOA shall encourage discoveries that emerge from innovative research projects that have begun to have technological, environmental, and social impact, making their way into the everyday lives of people throughout our region and beyond. The works of the Architects adds value to an already strong curriculum and challenges our faculty to continually reflect on the future of design education. As the demands of practice change at an unprecedented pace, it is crucial to have an educational environment that support innovative learning. Our school is keenly aware that we are preparing students for a workplace that will be unlike the past.

To meet the challenges of the future, to be ready for the world, our students shall work with state-of-the-art design & technologies including fabrication, engagement with faculty members and visitors with specialized Expertise and participation in new opportunities for collaboration and international exchange

Our goal is to make Nitte SOA a Design Research out from Bangalore to the world. We are convinced thinking will increasingly drive innovation and economic growth. Today, creative thinking will increasingly drive innovation and economic growth. Today creativity is in demand. A recent survey across the countries are making creativity as the first ‘leadership competency’ for the future. Across the globe countries are making creativity development a national priority. To advance innovative curricula in the school, we will be adding the courses, programmes, technological capability, intellectual capital, and industrial affiliates necessary to meet the global demand for creativity and research our objective for being a “design thinking”. To enrich the learning experiences of our students we will engage research partners from multi disciplinary areas of studies across the country . We will aspire to create value for everyone involved with our school.
