Hello, My name is Maharshi Patel and I am a proud LJSA former student. My experience for all the 5 years at LJSA was diversified due to the unique blend of most senior professors working in the field of Architecture for more than three decades to the Young enthusiastic professors who have always been helpful in the best way possible to synchronise our ideas of design and make it work practically. Besides study, I have discovered a lot of old as well as new building materials in a variety of workshops at LJSA and how to handle these materials in the most unique way possible.

I’m Jatin Panchal & I’m the student at LJSA since 2018 and as per my experience LJSA is the best platform for the architecture students. LJSA has best qualified faculties for full time as well as visiting faculties. All the faculties are very kind and helpful, they share their knowledge with students for Academics as well as field(Architectural practice). Admin staff are also very helpful. LJSA provides great academic curriculum, field visits, site visits, Architectural work shops, RSP(Related Study Programme) , External Guest lectures etc. Apart from academics LJSA celebrate cultural programme, sports, fest’s, etc. LJSA has best working environment for the students.

Thank you to the L. J. School of Architecture for providing me the opportunity to gain knowledge and a skill which set me to move forward in my new career path in architecture. I found course to be very inspirational rewarding. Variety of subject enriched my knowledge through site visits, group projects, different assignments, hands on workshops, guest lectures, interactive sessions, relative study program even at international level, etc., Extra support provided by all mentors, faculties and other staff members during pandemic made us feel all welcomed. I am sure that without the precious experience at L. J. School of Architecture I would not have such features of characters as determination, self-confidence, commitment. -Zeel Patel
