The excellent participation of Architecture Department in NASA, ZONASA, COA etc are so proud to remark. Many opportunities and experiences can be attained from here. Also there is a magical unity among TKMians.
Course curriculum comes under KTU which has a little bit packed schedule compared to previous university. It gives you mostly restless days. Also it is not upto mark related to study trips and internship. both are limited than previous KU curriculum. Theory and Drawing exams are there. The core subject is Design and it has a jury at the end of the sem.
Architecture Department don't have placements here. But we can apply to the placements cell of the collegd for other placements related to B- tech. There is a compulsory internship in our 7th sem Its purely based on individual portfolio and activities. college has no role in it.
College hosts Techno- Cultural fest every year. Our Architecture Department has been conducting seperate events related to architecture in it. It includes talks of great architects, workshops, games, design competitions, informals, culturals, fine arts etc. very good participation are seen every year. students come from all over Kerala. And we also put a stall named "Cardex" which sells out handicrafted products of ours.
Fee structure is same as other govt. colleges. in case of management seats extra donation must be given at the beginning but later on fee will be same as others. It is very feasible. Because other private Architecture college fees goes upto 1 lakh per annum.
I haven't availed any since I belongs to general category. But there are Central Sector Scholarship and some others also applicable for general, based on income. College offers some scholarships and loans.
For Architecture there are no much labs needed. We mainly have studios for design works. There are other clubs and organisations for different sectors including film, politics, art, music, technicals etc. The gender ratios are quite equal I think. I don't see any gender or caste or religion partitions in any of these. All are welcome everywhere. Even its Muslim management college such expected partitions are clearly not seen. College union are there selected by student election.
There are 5 ladies hostels owned by the college itself. one room is shared by 4 to 5 students. infrastructure changes in each hostels. one s exclusively for first years. Hostel seats were limited then but recently a new block was constructed. There is also an international facilitated hostel. wifi rooms and gym are avaliable in all hostels. The monthly fee ranges from 3000 to 5000 including mess which serves quality meals.
There is a alumni society for TKM which is running very successfully. Many donations and programmes are done by them. Also the senior students are very helpfull in many academic related things and extra curricular activities.
Architecture course was choosen since I think its my cup of tea. TKM is a government aided college. We always prefer govt. colleges and also I heard Tkm as the best among the 4 govt. architectural colleges of kerala. The admission was purely based on NATA entrance exam in which I secured 83rd rank. So I got alloted here in the first allotment itself. There waa no any other interviews.
Faculties are well qualified and the best. Most of them are Tkm alumnis and alumnis of IIT, CEPT etc. academics are run very well by them. Even though a tension builtup with our Hod recently related to not promoting extra curricular activities.
Very bad managment. Never consider any of our request or needs. Money is only their aim.
I opted Barch is because it was my aim to be an architect. The most fascinating factory about this career is that we could walk through or into life all our imagination and creativity. My passion towards creating a space and and experimenting creative things which brings a new and good change in the society would fullfiled. I got a merit seat in ASADI ( Asian School of Architecture Design and Innovation). Just like many architecture colleges in Ernakulam my college is also on the way of establishment, yet we have many achievements in very short span it includes the rank holders from our first pass out batch. Architecture is not just about the studies it all comes with experience and never ending learning. At our college we have faculties who have hands-on experience in the field and from our professors we could learn more on the practicals as well. Unlike any other colleges our college have a very peacefull campus inside the private island called silversand island right at the heart of the city vytila, yet covered with Waterscapes and vegetation.
Selection to B.Arch programme is based purely on merit. Selection will be done by SSA giving due weightage to the marks obtained in 10+2 examination and the NATA score. Merit is the only criterion for selection.
Internships are catalysts for change from being a student to becoming a professional. Students undergo extensive training under the supervision of a registered architect. It helps students develop drafting skills, design aesthetic as well as functional buildings, adapt designs to suit budget constraints or client needs, design with building codes and environmental factors in mind, etc. Students learn to engage with clients, consultants, contractors, field staff and workers and work as a team. They get hands on experience in project inception, tendering, estimation, onsite execution, etc.
Student should've qualified his 1+2 or its equivalent with maths as a subject and should've scored an aggregate of 50%. He also should've obtained a valid NATA score to be eligible for admission in this college for this course.
There's a compulsory internship programme that the students have to undertake in their 4th year of study. The stipend for it may vary depending on the firm. Also, the college takes care of placement of students.
