Smt. Manoramabai Mundle Department of Architecture was started in the session 1993-94 and was elevated to the status of a college in 2008-2009 after permission granted by the Council of Architecture, New Delhi and Govt. of India, RTM Nagpur University, Nagpur and Govt. of Maharashtra. Thus in the academic year 2017-18, the college is celebrating the 25th year of its successful presence. It will be an opportunity to take a pause, commemorate, introspect and evolve to take up emerging challenges with new vigor and confidence.
The primary purpose as an academic institute is the creation, dissemination, preservation and application of knowledge for the betterment of the society. SMMCA values open access to information, and free and lively debate with mutual respect for individuals, with a belief that learning occurs not only in the classroom but also through engagement in communities and organizations beyond the formal education. We wish to further this objective with a number of initiatives to be taken up in the 25th year.
This celebration will extend an opportunity to all stakeholders – such as the management, the staff, students, parents, associated architecture professionals; to come to a platform and deliberate on various issues related to the profession. It will also be an opportunity to move towards the goal of achieving academic excellence trough exploration of diverse contexts and innovations; thus making our presence felt in the society.
The celebration will take place though three major initiatives
