Infrastructure growth is a stepping stone of a stable and productive society. It presents unique challenges but also brings opportunities for private and public sectors in the field of construction. Moreover, India is a growing economy. It is estimated to be the third largest economy by 2050.
Due to the growth of GDP and more emphasis on infrastructure growth, from roadways to airways, ports to airports and power production facilities, Indian infrastructure segment is vital for the development of the nation and hence enjoys intense attention from top-grade policy makers of the country. Development will lead to massive construction and there will be a positive growth in industries related to construction. Reports also suggest that the upward trend has been witnessed by these sectors.
Construction sector in India is the second largest economic activity after agriculture and provides employment to about 33 million people. India's Construction industry has grown at a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of about 11.1% over the last eight years on the back of massive infrastructure investment and rapid rise in housing demand.
Infrastructure is the main priority of Indian Government currently. The development of infrastructure today is the main tool to achieving GDP growth targets. Nearly all of Construction, Real Estate and infrastructure sector present excellent opportunities with roads and highways, ports and airports, railways and power standing out as bright spots, with huge sums of investment planned. India’s economy is big and getting bigger. Liberal and supportive Government policies coupled with deliberate strategies to promote infrastructure spells great opportunities for engineering and construction (E&C) companies in India. Along with construction, allied industries like cement, steel etc. also will notice a rise in demand.
The industry requires skilled supervisors & engineers, who have the required skill set and exposure to new innovations and technologies in this sector.
In the last few decades, the technological and managerial evolution in the construction and infrastructure management engineering has resulted in demand for a new generation of modern engineers & supervisors. These engineers should not only know how to build civil infrastructure projects that meet safety, quality, environmental and other requirements, but also effectively control the project’s cost and duration.
The School of Construction Engineering & Infrastructure Management will offer Certificate, Diploma and degree programs to cater to this emerging requirement of the industry.
The programs will prepare students with the tools they need to become construction engineers and managers. The Programs blend principles of basic science, engineering and technology with a strong component of business coursework to prepare human resource for a productive career in the construction industry.
Students are given many hands-on experiences in the laboratory and are involved in numerous field trips to supplement classroom activities. After completing the programs students will find employment in all phases of construction: commercial and industrial building, heavy/highway, structures, utilities, and civil projects. They are employed by general constructors, subcontractors, suppliers, developers, homebuilders, consultants, and governmental agencies. They can also work as project engineers, project managers, field and office engineers, estimators, as well as in other positions.
Duration: 1 year
Duration: 3 months
The Programs prepare students to effectively deliver and manage the capital facilities and infrastructure that are critical to the country’s productivity. The curriculum builds upon a student’s technical background to develop managerial and financial expertise through a mix of fundamental and advanced areas of study. It also exposes students to the activities and issues of planning, financing, procuring, constructing, and managing the built environment in a suite of graduate-level courses.
The entire environment of homes, buildings, roads, freeways, bridges, and much more result from the delivery of construction projects. It is the responsibility of the construction engineer and construction manager to deliver these projects in a manner that maximizes value – a quality product at a fair price, safely constructed in a timely fashion. This final step in the development of our infrastructure – construction – is one of the most visible products in all of engineering.
The University will help students to apply and discover concepts, methods, and strategies for improving the delivery and management of constructed facilities and systems. It will introduce to the students a variety of managerial functions found in the modern construction industry and prepare them for positions of leadership and responsibility within industry, government, or academia.
