CSIIT School of Architecture believes that design is the touchstone to all things. Design education requires a deep and integral understanding of Art, Science & Technology. The faculty at CSIIT are committed to providing students with an experience and a framework that approximates a Renaissance education . . . while simultaneously exploring the modern conditions of our time and place to provide the intellectual ground for the artifacts i.e., writings, drawings, models, and constructions etc. that the students will be making in their coursework.

Interest in this ecumenical institution grew, and churches, missionary societies and other organisations from various regions of India and from abroad joined with the founders in support of the College. In 1951 the Church Missionary Society and the society for the Propagation of the Gospel became supporting bodies.

The world is on the threshold of a new era. The institution is engaged in the issues of our time and has positioned itself with a diverse faculty including: practicing architects, engineers, artists, researchers, and theoreticians. All faculty teach both in the Design Studios and in an area of specialization; they are deeply committed to the challenges of teaching 21st Century architects; issues of ecology and sustainability, and experience and concept, are all knit into the work and pedagogy of our institution.The faculty have maintained the institution’s long tradition of engaging in the authentic nature of place, region, culture, and habitation.

 The College also houses extension centre that provide unique opportunities for the undergraduate students to participate in various training programmes. Above all, we understand design to be a deeply considered creative endeavor. The institution emphasizes the delight of architecture and the search for the inexpressible flash that enlivens the things we make.
