The roadmap for Chandigarh College of Architecture (CCA) was chalked out during the valedictory day of the golden jubilee celebrations of the college. Apart from cultural activities,presentations,and awards and honour both short and long term suggestions were mooted for the college during the three-day event.
The suggestions that were given by alumni and the college faculty members included introduction of various master degree programmes in architecture,urban design,landscape design,lighting design,interior design and building construction. At present the college offers five-year graduate degree programmes.
A call for estabilishing specialised laboratories for fundamental and applied research including lighting lab,climatology lab,acoustic lab and cost effective materials lab was made for the coming batches. Apart from establishing these facilities,the already present infrastructure was also suggested to be expanded. This includes consultancy cell,research cell,placement cell and computer lab.
“These are some of the short term plans for the CCA. After due deliberations with the alumni we have decided to submit these at the UT Administration for further approval,said the CCA principal Pradeep Bhagat. A principal’s conference was also organised at the college on Sunday.
