Architecture There is no standard book that can be listed for Architecture. It depends on the particular course that you take and the professor who handles the course.We suggest you to bring architectural instruments like pencils, cutters and cutter blades, set square, parallel for drafting and other instruments you feel you might require for model making and drawing. These things are very costly here.

The remaining subjects are electives, so you may want to decide upon taking those courses or not after coming here. If the textbooks for the electives are available in India and if you would want to take those courses then you can buy those too. Also limited copies of each of these above mentioned textbooks are available in the University library for reference. It will be a good idea to get textbooks from India, as they are reasonable there compared to the prices out here.
