Department of Landscape Architecture
About the Department
Landscape Architecture is a profession concerned with both the built and natural environments. Landscape architects have a firm commitment to improve the quality of both environments through careful planning and design.
In the past, landscape architects were known as designers of gardens and parks. Today landscape architects are continuing this tradition, but have also expanded the field to include planning, design and management of several aspects of the physical environment. They are also specialists in site planning, which require the expertise of an architect and also detailed technical knowledge of soils, structures and services.
This degree programme aims at imparting proficiency in landscape assessment and design techniques by employing ecological principles while keeping in view socio-economic and cultural considerations. The programme covers a variety of subject areas such as plant systems and processes, plants and design, landscape engineering, eco-system analysis and field ecology, etc.
