Does Architecture get you jobs?

Question – I am planning to take up architecture but many say it does not provide job guarantee and lacks scope. Please advise…


Answer – A good choice of career (and therefore course!) is the one that is in keeping with one’s unique combination of interests, personality and abilities (hard and soft skills). Think about things you enjoy doing, your personality traits, academic and extra-curricular areas you excel in and then consider your suitability for different careers and courses. Sure, architecture has plenty of scope. Apart from designing the ever does architecture get you jobsgrowing number of buildings, houses, airports, malls, hospitals and hotels, trained architects also specialize in fields such as urban planning (town planning), transportation system designs, landscape architecture and planning, and architectural conservation (of old buildings and monuments). Architects now play a critical role in areas such as evaluating new projects, developing prototypes or liaising with national or overseas architect firms. Leading developers have increased their team of architects by 4-5 times over the past couple of years.
