As of my opinion University Visvesvaraya college is one of the best college for pursuing architecture course right now am in final year pursuing B Arch course and also I need to confess that it is one of the oldest best college in Karnataka State. As of my opinion fee structure is very much nominal when compare to any other college and I can say it is reliable too. The positive things are college provides good education and great placement assistance because several renowned companies visited the campus for the recruitment process. Overall it is best to choose for pursuing architecture course
