For Designers Who Care for the Environment
The course highlights the importance of Landscape Architects, who are advocates for the environment. When it comes to conservation, landscape architects often stand alone as the sole ambassadors for the environment during the design, construction and maintenance of a project. As an arguably ‘new’ profession, the value of the landscape component in a project is becoming more and more realized – and the scope for a career in the field is very high.
A Multifaceted Profession
This profession is not solely focused on one specific area - if you are looking for a diverse mix of work opportunities, then landscape architecture is for you. The variety of projects undertaken by landscape architects range from park planning, environmental research, national park preservation, designing public squares, residential design and much more.
The Power to Bring Change
Knowledge is power; and with knowledge is the power to change. As a professional landscape architect, you have the ability to empower others around you to make a difference. Landscape architects have the power and duty to change how, when, why and if we should or shouldn’t develop, design, plan and build on the landscape.
Wide Choice for Further Studies
It also opens up a host of options for higher education in India and abroad. Some graduates go on to study landscape architecture at postgraduate level, undertaking a postgraduate diploma or MA Landscape Architecture. Others choose to continue their education in areas such as landscape management or garden and landscape design, and other more specialist courses, including landscape ecology, land reclamation and restoration, and urban design.
The School of Environmental Design and Architecture (SEDA) is at the forefront of cutting-edge innovative design education.

The following degree programs are offered by SEDA - Bachelor's Program in Architecture (B.Arch.), Bachelor's Program in Landscape Architectural Design (B.Lad) and Bachelor's Program in Interior Design (B.Design).
In our Bachelor of Landscape Architectural Design program, students will be encouraged to combine creative design skills with a concern for the environment and sensitivity to ecological systems. Students will be trained as professionals, who are best equipped to deal with open living environments in a responsible and imaginative manner, with an emphasis on sustainability of urban and natural environments. It is an extremely relevant discipline for current times and has immense potential for the future.
The program is multi-disciplinary and consists of courses in design, sciences and humanities. The course also involves intense practical training and students will be exposed to the profession through site visits, lectures and workshops with eminent professionals. As the discipline of Landscape is complementary to the discipline of Architecture, students will find that there are multiple collaborative possibilities offered between the two courses in the form of studios and several other subjects.
Students undergo a summer training program in the senior year with landscape architecture practices, which will expose them to the professional field. The Design Cell of the B-LAD program also offer opportunities for students to gather experience on live professional projects.
