At IES College of Architecture, we are constantly trying to raise the bar in providing quality education in architecture. As a stepping stone to this progressive path, we have introduced an Outreach Program. To bridge the gap between the profession and education we are trying to equip the students with a better understanding of the society and the world around them. This is our idea of reaching a wider audience and in turn, contributing not only to the students but also to the architecture fraternity and the world as a whole.
The IESCOA Outreach is mainly responsible for international relations, publications, and workshops. It creates ways for faculty, staff, alumni, and students to collaborate with external groups in mutually beneficial partnerships. It aims to increase and encourage scholarly research amongst faculty and students. Research projects, teaching activities, civic engagement, or service-learning are a part of the program; facilitation of seminars, workshops, and published material is being undertaken. Together it aims at making IESCOA a community of engaged scholars. It will also be the voice of the college to the world.
This is achieved by creating compact educational sessions supplementing existing classroom education; through the hands-on learning experience and learning by travel and perception. The outcome we are aiming at is to build a large knowledge repository through an ‘advanced development curriculum’ entailing workshops for students, professionals, and teachers. They are designed as compact educational sessions encouraging experimental learning.
