The under graduate program in Architecture B Arch was started in MES College of Engineering from the academic year 1999 - 2000 with an aim to meet the demand of architects globally. The department is known as MES School of Architecture. It is also recognized by the AICTE and Government of Kerala. The B Arch program is affiliated to A P J Abdul Kalam University (KTU) with an intake for of 40. The school has the state of the art facilities be it class rooms, studios, library, computer laboratories, material museum and so on . School proudly hosts an annual event ‘Envision’ under the aegis of Society for Students of Architecture (SSA) wherein students showcase their co curricular and extracurricular talents along with technical sessions.
MES School of Architecture is headed by its Director - DR. Prasanna T K who has more than 2 ½ decades of experience in academics in the field of architecture.

Vision

  • Vision of MES School of Architecture is to create a centre for excellence offering undergraduate, post graduate and research programs. Objective of the School is to groom individuals to become architects of highest caliber having strengths in both aesthetic and functional aspects of building design. Sensitizing individuals to the immediate and global environment with a concern for fellow beings is given due thrust in the conduct of the course. Vision of the post graduate program is to instill in students the need for sustainability in development. of all scales and typology

Mission

  • To develop commitment among designers for optimization of resource utilization in design and construction of buildings through relevant knowledge transfer.

  • Focus on inducing technical competence, positive attitude and societal awareness with the right knowledge among the student community.

  • Continuous improvement and updating of educational system by adopting state of art technology.
