Greetings from MASA!
MASA Elections are round the corner! MASA has announced the dates for electing the President and the Executive Committee for the term 2018-2020. The month of October is an important month as the results of these elections will be declared and a new President and Executive Committee will take guard. The first MVUD Awards for students of Masters Programs in Architecture will be held at USM’s Kamala Raheja Vidyanidhi Institute for Architecture and Environmental Studies, Mumbai, setting a new standard for showcasing works of students of Master’s Program. This being the first of its kind I hope the students will take advantage of this opportunity.
In similar vein, the Government of India has announced the Unnat Bharat Abhiyan, an initiative of Department of Higher Education, The Ministry of Human Resource Development. IIT Delhi has been appointed as the National Coordinating Institute for implementing this program. This program aims to establish a direct connect between the higher education institutes and local communities to address developmental issues of rural India. It will be a great opportunity for students of architecture to work on live problems and provide solutions.
A gentle reminder to all institutes to renew their membership with MASA!
