Director's Message


(Director – Swarnabhoomi Academic Institutions)

It is indeed a pleasure to see a new set of budding architects as the next batch at MIDAS. MIDAS has successfully carved a niche in Indian architecture education and has endeavored to re-define architecture education with a global perspective through slew of workshops & projects already planned for the academic year. With infrastructure and real estate being a critical element of our economic development, there will be ample scope for architects from MIDAS to make a mark for themselves. I wish the new batch a great action-packed, fun-filled learning experience at MIDAS.
