» Career prospects of architecture in India

Career in ArchitectureTo start with ‘In any field if you want to earn good you need to be on top tier which excels with an exclusive set of skills which will keep you in demand’. What Pooja Wahane has said is correct and i am happy to see her believe in it. The value of an architect in not because of what he has studied but what projects he has executed or worked on. So sorry to disappoint you but you wont earn much more than 15-20k (that too in metros).
First you need to understand that architecture is not only about design, you need to have technical knowledge of what is going in the field and how to resolve the issues. Your knowledge of making detail drawings should be upto the mark, so LEARN THINGS & INVEST IN YOURSELF FIRST. Forget the money part, it follows… i started at 7k a month but after 7 yrs i have grown way more than that, become a project manager in huge real estate company and earning at par with my friends from IT sector, have executed projects in Dubai and Indonesia. The whole reason for this is coz of the things i have learned and experienced and nothing else.
Architects are paid to solve problems, so the more exclusive your problem solving skills are more you are in demand and better the package. So for now FOCUS ON LEARNINGand after that work and learn for next 5 yrs.
