The Institute of Architecture and Planning, Nirma University participated in the 62nd Zonal Annual NASA (National Association of Students of Architecture) held at Amity University, Mumbai from 20th-22nd September, 2019. There were representations from various colleges from Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra in this zone. Our Institute participated for the first time in ‘Reubens’ Trophy and was awarded ‘Citation’ (Winner) in that category and was judged as the best college for academic excellence. The Citation was shared by SCET, Surat.
The Reubens trophy provides a platform for the participating college to showcase their curricular work, which is a reflection of both the nature of pedagogic approaches of the institute and the resultant knowledge and skills acquired by the students. It is conceived as a competition whereby the quality of the academic work produced by the students of different colleges are judged on the basis of a variety of criteria such as research and awareness, technical know-how, procedural diligence, analytical capabilities, problem-solving acumen, creative vision, design sensitivity and presentation skills. More importantly, the resultant exhibition of works offers a diverse exposure to the delegates.
