STUDENTS’ SOCIETY OF ARCHITECTURE - THE PRESENT
Students’ Society of Architecture, abbreviated as SSA, as the name calls out, is a society run by students of the Department of Architecture, BIT Mesra. Managed by students, advised by the professors, it is responsible for catering the needs and fulfilling the aspirations of the students of the department. The Society seeks to create a platform for students’ interaction and promotes architecture through organising workshops, colloquiums, seminars and talks amongst the stakeholders. It is mainly formed to enhance the architectural exposure of the students so that the students can get hands-on experience of activities and construction technology emerging today.
Being a society run by students of a creative field, SSA not only does the management and operations part, but the innovative and creative part as well. The BITOTSAV Info-cell, which is supposed to be the entry pavilion for the BITOTSAV, the techno-cultural fest of the Institute, exhibits itself to be the most creative part of the event is a product of the society. The entire family of the SSA takes pride in coming up with a new creation every year in the form of this Info-cell. SSA also provides parallel great platforms for the emerging architects to hone their skills and improve their understanding of construction and team-work before they enter the professional world. SSA is also actively involved with multifaceted college events and contributes to stage decoration, backdrop design, posters and banner design etc.
Since, it’s formed by the students who get different posts and activities to be responsible for, it teaches them management of professional workplace, and team coordination. Since, Architecture Department is close-knit family, SSA provides a platform of coexistence and adherence and the qualities of the students are best cultured over here. In totality, SSA is like a small organization for our young budding architects, benefiting and working towards improving the quality and professional bonding amongst one another in the Architecture department.
