NAAB and Becoming an Architet

Dr. Architecture:

I have a few questions in mind. I am a little perplexed when my parents ask me what I want to become. I want to become an architect. The only problem is that I dont know which college or university to take admission in. I reside in India,and I study in class 12. I read about this in NAAB. I wanted to know what is it about and which colleges in Asia are registered with it..

Thank you

First, congrats on your pursuit of becoming an architect.  

Next, NAAB is the National Architectural Accrediting Board -- (  As you can read from their website, they accredit architecture programs in the U.S.  In addition, they maintain a list of accredited programs with websites for you to research.

Unfortunately, they do NOT accredit programs outside the U.S.

An additional resource for you is Becoming an Architect, 3rd ed. -- Again, it is written for becoming an architect in the U.S., but it may still be useful.
