Environmental systems: Ability to demonstrate the principles of environmental systems design, how design criteria can vary by geographic region, and the tools used for performance assessment. This demonstration must include active and passive heating and cooling, solar geometry, day lighting, natural ventilation, indoor air quality, solar systems, lighting systems, and acoustics

Building Technology: Understanding of the basic principles involved in the appropriate selection and application of building envelope systems relative to fundamental performance, aesthetics, moisture transfer, durability, and energy and material resources.

Building Materials & Assemblies: Understanding of the basic principles used in the appropriate selection of interior and exterior construction materials, finishes, products, components, and assemblies based on their inherent performance, including environmental impact and reuse

Building service systems: Understanding of the basic principles and appropriate application and performance of building service systems, including lighting, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, communication, vertical transportation, security, and fire protection systems

Professional practice,  Stakeholder Roles: Understanding of the relationships among key stakeholders in the design process client, contractor, architect, user groups, local community and the architects role to reconcile stakeholder needs

Project Management:   Understanding of the methods for selecting consultants and assembling teams; identifying work plans, project schedules, and time requirements; and recommending project delivery methods

Business practices: Understanding of the basic principles of a firms business practices, including financial management and business planning, marketing, organization, and entrepreneurship.

Legal responsibilities: Understanding of the architects responsibility to the public and the client as determined by regulations and legal considerations involving the practice of architecture and professional service contract

Professional Conduct: Understanding of the ethical issues involved in the exercise of professional judgment in architectural design and practice and understanding the role of the COA Code of Ethics in defining professional conduct.

Integrated Evaluations: Integrated Evaluations and Decision-Making Design Process: Ability to demonstrate the skills associated with making integrated decisions across multiple systems and variables in the completion of a design project. This demonstration includes problem identification, setting evaluative criteria, analyzing solution.

  1. Karnataka B.Tech applicants must have passed PUC (Class 12) with at least 45% of marks.
  2. The applicants must have studied Class 12 with Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry/ Biotechnology/ Biology/ Computer Science as the main subjects.
  3. The applicants must have a valid KCET or COMEDK UGET or JEE Main score to secure B.Tech admission in Karnataka.
