The Mission Statement
Rizvi College of Architecture is an integral part of the national mission for human development through education. The prime goal of the educational programme is to prepare students for a professional role as architects in the service of humanity.
An architect has to play multiple roles. However, the primary responsibility is to co-ordinate design endeavour. This requires development of leadership quality as design and planning involves teamwork. The team includes architects, planners, interior designers and landscape architects, structural and services engineers, construction and project management consultants, legal, finance and other consultants. The college now offers Bachelor of Architecture and Masters in Architecture post graduate courses affiliated to the University of Mumbai and Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University (YCMOU) in environmental architecture, urban design and urban and regional planning. The college has long term plan to offer doctoral programmes.
The most essential part of the mission strategy is to develop an all round awareness of the complex issues involved in shaping of built environment, and to equip the students with knowledge and insight to meet the challenges of development and conservation, continuity of relevant traditions and effecting change through appropriate innovation in a variety of human, social, economic, technical and environmental contexts.
Rizvi College of Architecture aims to evolve into a school of architectural thought with a distinctive philosophy focusing on human, socio-cultural, environmental, scientific and technological, aesthetics and philosophical values. The courses are structured to orient studies in a range of contexts, which include rural, urban, metropolitan, regional, national and international.
The mission aims at development of sincere professionals with a high standard of morals and ethics, intellectual honesty, clarity of thought and with a spirit of innovation and creativity.
