NMIMS Deemed-to-be-University focuses on various modes of architectural education, research and practice. It emphasizes on the ever changing ethos, behavioral sciences, tools and techniques, and assimilates all in contemporary design expression.

The Center For Built Environment Studies (CBES) is a natural direction to continue the design philosophy at NMIMS to the scale of Interior Environments.

    BSSA as an institution nurtures its students, not just as future architects but designers with very radical yet sensitive unique approaches to various concerns. We spend most of our day here, so it wouldn't be wrong to call it our second home. It actually feels like a second home to us due to the friendly faculty and helpful staff. The encouraging attitude of the faculty wouldn't let you stop your thinking, rather boost it every way possible for a stream load of ideas which would be necessary for our lives ahead.
