Learning Architecture requires mentors who work tirelessly towards the success of their protéges. CSPA’s faculty helped me to achieve laurels at NIASA Awards 2014 and motivated me for further education in Environmental Design. Today I work in Toronto designing Condos and can’t thank my mentors enough for this career.

I am a proud alumna of CSPA. All the teachers at CSPA have always been a support throughout my journey from being a clueless young student to an individual having my own identity. I feel highly obliged for being a part of this institute where I have been polished in a way that I can stand out independently and confidently.

CSPA Alumna

“I have been part of the CSPA family for the last 8 years, first as a student and now as a part of the visiting faculty. The skills and education I received at CSPA got me into a top-rated graduation school in the U.S. and has helped me grow in my small practice as an Architect. As a faculty I am trying to impart the same values now to my students.”
