The RICS School of Built Environment celebrates six years of providing world class education to accredit aspiring professionals in India.
Over the past six years, the School of Built Environment has played an active role in nurturing, qualifying and accrediting aspiring professionals in India. During that time over 1,200 students have enrolled, with nearly 1,000 of them being placed in the industry, both in South Asia and internationally. Many of these students have gone on to register as RICS trainees and attain MRICS status.
To celebrate this milestone, faculty members, students and leading industry professionals came together at an event featuring a panel discussion, followed by cultural performances by students, and a ceremonial cake cutting and high tea.
The panel discussed the urban/rural divide alongside Mark Powell, Executive Director of RICS School of the Built Environment, and Professor Mona Shah, and leaders from Green Business Certification Inc. India, the Housing and Urban Development Corporation, Turner & Townsend and Dell.
The RICS School of Built Environment was founded on 10 April 2013 in New Delhi and was inaugurated by the then Urban Development Minister in the presence of the RICS Governing Council and Founders of Amity University. The collaboration has resulted in a niche, industry-driven academic course.
The School offers postgraduate programmes in real estate, construction, quantity surveying and facilities management; undergraduate programmes in real estate and construction; and an active PhD. programme for the built environment.
Over 60 faculty members facilitate these programmes along with a similar number of admin staff. Programmes include industry-led teaching with hands-on learning for nearly 1,000 students.
In 2017, the Mumbai campus was officially opened and is sending out its first set of graduates to the industry.
