RV College of Architecture Placement

The placements for Architecture students is relatively low. Most of the students would search for internships with existing architects and Architecture companies. The internship maybe a few months to a year or two. This internship may be mostly without any payment or salary. After gaining a good experience in the real world, the student may then approach for a job with the same company or may begin their own venture. Thus, for architects, the real world is more of a practice rather than a job. Architects may approach the hospitality industries in conceptualization departments.

    No. The institute does not directly provide any placements or internships. But, they encourage us to apply for various internships for industrial exposure. They even help us in building our portfolio and sending them to various reputed companies applying for recruitment.
