Profile of Indian Education Societys College of Architecture

The humble beginnings of the INDIAN EDUCATION SOCIETY can be traced back to January 1912 when five devoted teachers laid the foundation of the King George English School, now known as the Raja Shivaji Vidyalaya. The Indian Education Society was formally founded on the 29th of September 1917 in Dadar, Mumbai with the noble objective of creating an institute for the all round development of education. They were aware that education played a very important role in the rapid advancement and overall development of the country.

Thus since its very inception, the Indian Education Society has been pursuing the ideals of imparting quality education to the masses. Today, it has 62 schools and 2 colleges all over the city and also recently established its first Junior College in Bandra (E), thereby expanding their vast empire of educational institutitions in Mumbai. IES aims at inculcating the right values in students who will be the makers of tomorrow, in accordance with its motto : Value Addition through Education.

The advent of the Indian Education Society into the mainstream of Higher and Technical Education was imminent. Recognizing the growing need for professionals in the field of architecture, the Indian Education Societys College of Architecture was started in 1995 with the aim of moulding architecture students into high caliber professionals.

Presently, the IESs College of Architecture offers a Bachelor of Architecture degree, under the five years program of the University of Mumbai. The course is scheduled as a 5-year program with examinations held at the end of every year. Through the years, the college has always produced toppers at both institutional and University level and has always remained active on an extra-curricular level by participating at various Architectural Competitions and other events.

Mumbai is a fast developing city. Its heritage structures have to be conserved while providing modern structures to cop up the fast growing population of Mumbai. The number of students opting for the Architecture course has been increased in recent years. However, still there is a deficit of seats as more and more students rush to the Citys colleges for admission every year. The I.E.S therefore decided on establishing the College of Architecture in Mumbai city.

To educate students to become responsible, well trained and socially committed professionals who will respect the richness of our nature, diversity of culture and through continuous professional development make significant contribution to a sustainable and eco friendly build environment.

Architectural Design is a process involving inter-related issues of a diverse nature. A proper understanding of a basic scientific background is necessary for designing energy efficient and eco-friendly buildings and spaces within, which are simple, natural and sustainable.
