Hi Mohan,

I am surprised that you want to do M.Arch after having spent so many years as an Engineer. Its good to hear about it. I think you are eligible to do M.Arch. But what field do you want to choose? Are you interested in doing design course for your Masters or pick up some technical subjects? Most M.Arch courses in India are design oriented. M.Arch Courses offered typically are Urban Design/Design/Interior Architecture/Landscape etc. and they are open to people from design backgrounds especially B.Arch/Interior design etc. and they ask for design portfolio during selection. But I am sure you are eligible to do planning courses such as Urban/Regional/Transport planning and M.Tech Project Management. Please let me know specifically what you want to do and why so that I may be able to suggest anything specific.

Sriraj, I am not suprised that an engineer wants to turn architect because I was a Marine Engineer, then an Industrial Production Controller, before wanting to stretch myself and be more creative, so I did a BA (Hons) in Architecture. :)))

In passing, the discipline of Marine Engineering includes design and is known as Marine Architecture.

Frank, I think it is not uncommon in the UK and Europe in general to pursue different courses and then switch careers. But here in India the norm is if you have a degree in a subject then you are supposed/expected to drag it till your end...Very few people take the opportunity or liberty to explore out of the way. May be because of limited opportunities here.
