R V College of Architecture - RVCA

R.V College of Architecture was instituted in 1992-93, as a Department of Architecture of R V College of Engineering, with an intake of 30 students. The college was nurtured by eminent Architectural Educationists like Dr. K S Anantha Krishna, Late Prof. Sudheendra Yalavigi and others. Dr Om Prakash Bawane, an alumnus of NIT Bhopal and IIT Rourkee, is the Principal of the College. The department started to make a mark by its earnestness to the cause of architectural education. Various workshops were held and an exhibition hall consisting of a cross section of student’s works, aided this process. The department shifted to its independent new premises in the campus in 1995, a building designed by Late Prof. Sudheendra for which the students added an artistic flavor. Faculties with expertise in specialized areas were handpicked to establish the qualitative teaching core of the College whose guidance was in turn, sought earnestly by scholarly students. Reputed architects in Bengaluru like Ar Soumitro Ghosh, Ar Jaisim, Ar Naresh Venkataraman and others are brought in as visiting faculty to add expertise in the teaching panel. The academic rigor of R.V College of Architecture thus set in and improved over the years, receiving accolades nationally and internationally for providing quality education in architecture. The main emphasis is given to integrating art, science and technology for the development of student’s aptitude towards architecture. Academic excellence is ensured by experienced faculties and facilitated by art facilities. From the year 2009, the Rashtreeya Sikshana Samithi Trust gave autonomy to the Department and R.V School of Architecture was institutionalized. In 2009 the Council of Architecture approved redesignation of the RV School of Architecture as RV College of Architecture, and, in 2014 the Government of Karnataka and Visvesvaraya Technological University, Belagavi approved RV College of Architecture shifting to the New state of the Art Campus as a standalone Institution.   The scholastic pursuit was supplemented by quality improvement programs for teachers of architecture and continuing education programs for professionals organized by the College, an opportunity given to RVCA by the Council of Architecture. The Indian Institute of Architects, Karnataka chapter also collaborated with the College to organize workshops and seminars. Student and faculty exchanges took place between the College and University of Muenster, Germany and Moratuwa University, Sri Lanka. The students won several design competitions organized by NASA, Infosys, Ethos, Birla White and others. The students also won the Council of Architecture – NIASA award for Architectural Thesis awards for the years 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011. Today, the college has a sanctioned intake of 120 Students for B. Arch and 20 Students for M. Arch.
