Computer Practice Workshop

A techno-commercial manager is expected to be proficient in computer applications in all the aspects, related to project planning, scheduling, monitoring and control and other packages for estimating, accounting  Tally, ERP package and/or generating outputs for a variety of purposes.

The person should be conversant with Internet and multi-media systems. It is expected that a student must spend at least 08 hours per week in the Computer Lab to gain proficiency in the application of various software used in construction.

Construction Skill Building Workshop (CSBW)

The objective of Construction Skill Building Workshop is to give hands-on experience in building trades, operation of construction machinery during construction. It is expected that a student must spend about 8 hours per week at construction sites and as well as conducting experiments at Quality lab. They may work as masons, plumbers and carpenters; handle vibrators, operate dozers, dumpers etc. They carry out measurement, costing and estimation, prepare bill of quantities, tender documents and quality checks and learn the application of various Standards of construction processes. Students must learn and equip themselves with health and safety equipment. CSBW is a credit course.

Students are required to undergo training in First-aid and obtain a certificate from the Competent Authority. They are expected to know car/two wheeler driving.

Soft Skill Workshop (SSW)

Soft SkillWorkshop (SSW) is an Important event of the curricula. It equips with the following skills required for a techno-commercial manager.
  •   Communication skills
  •   Listening skills
  •  Skills in dealingwith select work groups: clients, construction workers,   government inspectors, trade unionists etc.
  •   Presentation Skills
Group assignments, audio-visual presentations, mock sessions, visits to labour colonies, understanding work in government offices, formal social events are some of the indicators of what goes into SSW. SSW is a credit course.

Project Work

The Project Work Is an Independent qualifying requirement and also carries weightage in the final assessment and evaluation.
A student is expected to select a topic for his/her project work on a live problem in the industry or a macro-issue having a bearing on performance of the construction industry. The topic should be researchable in the given time and Is approved by the Institute. It should involve scientific design of a study, collection and analysis of data and preparing a thesis in an acceptable academic style. A project Work is normally of 25000 words plus appendices etc.

The student will be allotted a research guide by the Institute. If the student selects to have a guide from outside, the Institute will nominate one of the faculty members is a co-guide. Students are permitted to take up group projects Wherever found suitable and approved by the Institute. These are evaluated by the internal as well as by the external examiners.

Industrial Training

As part of the curricula each student has to undergo supervised field training with a reputed construction firm. During this period they can do their project work for which they have to select a live problem of the concerned company/industry and get it approved from the institute. Therefore, the industrial training will make students' research an applied research in the area of construction management.

Agencies for practical training are carefully selected. The host agency is expected to nominate a senior officer to supervise the student's work, be willing to pay a stipend to the student and hopefully may offer employment to the student trained by it. What the Institute looks for is meaningful and supervised work experience for the student. Sponsored students are expected to do training in their own organization.

Industry - Academic Interface

The institute is committed to hold conf. & seminar on fortnightly / monthly basis.

So as to develop Industry academic Relationship and provide industrial exposure in infrastructure and construction management.
