The architectural profession can be seen as a developing and multi-disciplinary career. It is one of the major professions that affect the development of a country. It is the most influential professions in our society as it involves all aspects that affect the way in which our built environment is designed, constructed, and used thus affecting the user him/herself.

The holistic development of students and teachers is what we believe in and work for. We strive to achieve this by imbibing a unique value system, transparent work culture, excellent academic and physical environment conducive to learning, creativity & technology transfer. Our mandate is to generate, preserve and share knowledge for developing a vibrant society and we all have to ensure that there is no stone left unturned to equip the student of today for the challenges of life. We always put purpose before short term achievements, the vision before short-cuts. We also believe that nothing is impossible on this earth provided one makes an earnest attempt to proceed ahead with patience, dedication, and perseverance.

We mentor our students to imbibe our values and insights into the state of the art facility that nourishes and amplify the students’ talent to mould them into the masters of tomorrow.

I deeply appreciate the dedication and hard work of our team SSAUDP, which has made such massive progress possible. I also thank our students and their parents for bestowing their confidence in us. All this would not have been possible without the unstinted support of them.

Wishing you the best,
