In our college they offer B.Arch and the duration of the program is 5 years. I could get the admission in this college because of my score in the NATA. It is compulsory that we have good score in the NATA mostly in top scores or ranking students only has chances to get admission here. University Visvesvaraya College of engineering dates are from February till March so after that admission will be closed. Here the admission is purely given on the basis of NATA and no direct entry for the B.Arch course will be allowed as this is a government institute.
