Mumta and Architectural Training

Finding her Ground 

Before coming to Brighton, Mumta always had an interest in construction and architecture. Growing up with a contractor as a father, she found herself following in his footsteps from a very young age.

As she got older, Mumta was soon offered a chance to work with her father in growing their business. As she searched for architectural training, she eventually enrolled in Brighton as the next step towards her career goals.

Architectural Training and Projects

After enrolling in Brighton, Mumta found herself enjoying a lot of the challenges and assignments she was given. One of their first projects was to design a 5 subdivision lot which she crafted using Autodesk Revit and Sketch Up.

Mumta praised the course material for being practical and highly valuable to the type of work she wanted to do.

While in class, Mumta also enjoyed how the instructors would always lend helping hands whenever she needed. After graduation, Mumta plans to continue building her experience working with her father in residential housing.
