RICS School Of Built Environment Launches New Curriculum Construction Project Management 4.0
RICS SBE’s designed course; MBA in Construction Project Management will prepare civil engineers and architecture graduates to excel in the role of a project manager, working with a team, often as a project leader
RICS School of Built Environment, Amity University has introduced its new curriculum with ‘Construction Project Management 4.0’, in response to a strong call from the industry & emerging technologies in the built environment sector. Whether it’s a residential high-rise or a major airport, construction project managers play a key role throughout the delivery process.
RICS SBE’s designed course; MBA in Construction Project Management will prepare civil engineers and architecture graduates to excel in the role of a project manager, working with a team, often as a project leader.
The course will give international exposure via student exchange programs with renowned universities. Students will get hands-on experience and are privy to a practice-based curriculum. The course is open to Civil Engineers & Architects.
RICS SBE is concentrating on progressive and balanced classroom delivery and increased practical/self-work/NTCC. There is a provision for students to graduate with ‘super-specialization’ in pathways such as procurement and contracts, valuation, sales and marketing, finance and facilities management. Keeping in mind the goals at WEF & OECD, RICS SBE has introduced ethics and sustainability in the majority of the courses. Research in emerging areas such as Blockchain, 3D printing, BIM, Artificial Intelligence, Smart Analytics has been included as part of a new curriculum.
Besides this students will learn about practical project management, business management, and construction, sustainability and behavioral aspects of managing projects. Along with this, they will be introduced to digital technologies, big data analytics & CC, building information modelling, AI and cyber-physical system (IOT) in the built environment.
This enhanced curriculum was launched to bridge the skills gap by shaping employment ready professionals, exhibit excellence in research and teaching, deliver an outstanding student experience, demonstrate on-going relevance to the industry, retain thought leadership in the built environment sector and produce global professionals with integrity and competence in keeping with RICS standards.
Prof. Joseph V Thanikal MRICS, Associate Dean and Director, School of Construction, said, “Construction Management 4.0 and the increasing use of offsite manufacturing are changing the way we build. Our future cities will be the product of tightly coupled, multi-nodal manufacturing systems, incorporating multiple interactions of both social and technological complexity in the construction of our built environment spaces and places. However, traditional approaches to construction management remain wedded to the management of construction elements rather than the complexity of their interactions. To ensure success in the construction of our future cities, a new approach is required. CPM4.0 aims to re-evaluate Construction Project Management (CPM) from complexity perspectives and to develop new 4.0-ready tools accordingly.”
