The Architecture Program of DC offers unique elements of design, blended with facilities such as workshops for loom, furniture design, masonry, etching, etc.
A process based approach is adopted while imparting the Design Education. We encourage Innovation in teaching methodology. We lay stress on interactive sessions, Seminars, and Workshops not only Lectures and Design Studios. We have healthy interactions between industry and academics to bridge the gap between Design and Deliverance. A real time approach with hands-on experience is what Students at DC School of Architecture and Design go through.
A residential Campus gives students to get to know, spend time with classmates, Professors and other academic advisors. It also offers a place to go for ideas and answers to questions that may arise in their academic or life journey. A campus life is social and an academic experience, we advocate a balance in order to maximize success in both areas.”
The Management Program is headed by Prof. (Dr) Ramachandran N, Former Faculty of Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta.
The Architecture Program is headed by celebrated Architect TM Cyriac and Ar. Shankar S Kandhadai, who is a conservation Architect, is the Design Chair.
Innovative Ideas and Breakthroughs from NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering
The department has published two patents, research papers at international conferences
The Civil Engineering department of NMIMS MPSTME has been making significant strides in the field of disaster management, flood resilience, and sustainable infrastructure. The department has published two patents, research papers at international conferences, and completed several student-led projects on topics such as renewable energy, groundwater modelling, and self-healing concrete.
The first patent, ‘Automated Flood Water Regulating Multipurpose System,’ proposes a novel approach to flood resilience by constructing multipurpose wells on the banks of rivers to discharge excess water and generate hydropower. The second patent, ‘Aqua Barrier,’ is an automated mechanism that can protect any flood-prone area, regardless of its size, from any disasters caused due to water.
The student-led projects are equally impressive, with topics ranging from low-volume rural concrete roads to oscillating tidal wave energy converters. These projects showcase the department’s focus on sustainable infrastructure, renewable energy, and innovative design.
The faculty at NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering department, led by Head, Dr. Meenal Mategaonkar and Research coordinator, Dr. Jigisha Vashi, played a vital role in guiding and mentoring students toward research excellence. Their expertise and guidance have enabled students to participate and win awards in prestigious competitions such as the CDRI’s ‘Imagining Disaster Resilient Structures’ and The University of Queensland’s ‘Engineering Design Challenge, and AAKAR at IIT Bombay.’
The department’s success is further evidenced by the achievements of its students in national and international conferences. Students presented their research papers in Scopus Indexed papers and conferences such as the 9th Indian Young Geotechnical Engineering Conference and the Eighth Indian Young Geotechnical Conference.
Dr. Meenal Mategaonkar, Head of the Civil Engineering Department, MPSTME, NMIMS, said, “The achievements of the NMIMS MPSTME Civil Engineering department demonstrate its commitment to developing innovative solutions for complex problems in the field of civil engineering. The department’s focus on sustainable infrastructure, disaster resilience, and renewable energy is essential for addressing the challenges faced by society today. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of both students and faculty and their commitment to excellence.”
