I would like to say Indian Institute of Technology BHU ( IIT BHU) is one of the best college for pursuing Architecture courses. Right now am in 1st year since I was very much interested in doing Architecture so I choosed B Arch courses. Infrastructure is good and the facilities are up to the standards and the teaching faculties are actually good and they offer us best teaching through unique learning methodologies. Institute has good placement cell which organizes activities which is industry relevant to enhance practical skills and also some of the reputed companies visited the campus for the recruitment process
