Architect Career Information

What an Architect does

Abilities & Traits Required


You could pursue a degree in Architecture directly after clearing your HSC with Mathematics. You'll be trained in environmental awareness, human behaviour, problem solving and visual language skills, mainly drawing, painting, photography and the ability to explore and communicate ideas graphically.

One can also have a diploma in Architecture to begin with. But a Diploma will not get you lucrative jobs. You can only work as assistants to Architects and architectural firms.


The moolah actually depends on how complicated the design and project is and also how long it would take for the project to be completed. But as a fresher you could start off with Rs 13000 –15000 a month. With a little experience, you would be comfortably earning between Rs 25000 – 30000 or more per month depending on the firm.

Once you have established yourself, you can look forward to earning in lakhs. But if you can manifest you talent, you should expect a meteoric rise in your career, both in terms of position and remuneration. An established architect may earn more than Rs 50000 a month. Once you have earned a name for yourself you can even earn several lakhs in a year.
