The Construction Industry is expected to be the third largest construction market globally by 2025. Real Estate Projects such as residential, office, retail, hotels and leisure parks and Infrastructure Projects like Water supply, Oil and Gas, Metros, Highways etc., will fuel the massive growth of the Indian Construction Industry.

An Academic Programme, generally follows a set pattern where a student is required to take up subjects/courses set by the Academic Council and upon passing these requirements, the student generally gains a degree or a Diploma. Such Programmes generally follow a standardized classroom approach which has limited Industry Interventions.
