Career Prospects of infini’s PGP in construction management: Become managers within 5-6 yrs.

Infini is a platform created by, for and to civil engineers. We know the pulse of each civil engineer and architect. While today’s freshers are unable to get good jobs on the basis of degree; infini’s post grads are in demand. Monthly salary of a graduate Civil Engineer / Architect is dropped down to less than 10,000/-. Infini’s post grads get 9 job options to choose and range of annual salary is 3 to 7 lakh. They get variety of options to choose from Real estate, Industrial and Infra projects such as Engineer -Planning, Estimation, Execution, Billing, Tendering & Contracts, QAQC, Purchase, Cost control, Project coordination, BIM. Few of infinians have become Managers just within 5 years after completion of course. Otherwise, an ordinary graduate takes 15-16 long years and there is no guaranty to reach to this success.

Prospects for architects:

Architects can learn skills to manage resources, prepare estimates, bidding & tendering, contracts monitoring, claims, project coordination, project scope management and auditing, Quality control and project management. This knowledge is very useful in managing Design-Build projects. They have ability to become a better project coordinator and a manger with the background of Architecture.
“Your degree doesn’t give you job; your ability does & we build abilities”

  • - Overall personality development and many more..

Why are we best? : Difference in infini’s PGP and other PG:

All of the PG programs designed are not aligned with latest industry requirements. Research oriented approach of PG studies is not found useful in the Indian construction industry. All the technology used in India is adaptation of foreign research and hence engineers who are good in application of this technology are mostly needed. Infini’s approach is completely different and better in many ways –

Comparison point Typical MTech and PG programs – from reputed institutes in metro cities Infini’s PGP
Faculty & Teaching methodology Mostly pure academicians with less or no site experience who can’t connect job requirements (practice) and theory. Typical classroom sessions & sharing of bookish knowledge won’t build confidence and gives clarity. All faculties are industry experts having 20 to 40 yrs. exp. who lived life of PM, GM, VP etc. They share live experience in case study form. More on-site training & less classroom training assures no gap in theory and practice.
Syllabus Age old and diluted course contents, misaligned from the latest practices, trends and industry requirements. Aligned with the changing needs of market trends and practices, inclusive of national and international standards, acts and legalities.
Placement Unsure / No campus. % has dropped to less than 30% during the pandemic. Assured job of choice, campus or off campus placement with 100% record in past 7 yrs. National and international placements.
Variety of job choices No or minimal. Sometime profiles offered are of banking and non-civil engineering. 9 job choices to select from core civil field.
Starting salary and job type Many gets salary from 2 to 2.5 lakh per annum and only few reaches to 4 to 5 lakh. Annual salary range is from 3 to 7.5 lakh.
Duration & Fees 2 Yr. duration Fees ranges from 5 to 16 lakh 1 Yr. duration means recovery of fees in the next yr. Fees is 4 lakh. No extra / hidden charges.
Career vision Missing. Career path is not clear and not aligned with personal SWOT. 100% clear, personalized for each student. MBTI and SWOT, personalized counseling.
Examination Typical semester-end written exam or oral /online, which can’t define the real potential. Mostly number game! Progress reviews in the form of viva conducted @ 1.5 months interval by the industry experts with focus on skills gap identification and AoI.
Site training / Internship Not provided & supervised by institute. No safety concerns. 100% provided by Infini on reputed company sites and mentored by industry expert & infini’s mentor. PPE kit and insurance is provided.
Recognition & Quality audits AICTE & UGC recognition, audits done once in 4 yrs. International by EAL recognition, worldwide accepted. Yearly audit.
Class strength & class conduct 20 to 90 students in one class. Classes may not be compulsory to attend! 30 max. in one class. Classes are compulsory to attend. Disciplined.
Post PG career support Not provided. Provided by sharing better career opportunities from India & abroad.

Think wise, choose right: Because everything glitters is not a gold!

Today industry has lost the trust on the marksheets and CGPA. Marksheets are not the correct diagnosis of the student’s potential. Mind it, jobs and good packages are given to the deserving candidates and not to desiring people. It’s a need of hour to Upskill and Upgrade. Today, Success ≠ Qualification + Experience. Job skills & attitude are most important that makes a difference.
In today’s market one shall be alert of the show business, cheating & false promises not be the prey of frauds. Ensure what is right for you. Be wise, choose right because

  • - 2 Yr. course ≠ more or in-depth learning
  • - Approved by University ≠ assured jobs
  • - Less fees & short duration ≠ proper training that you require
  • - Many PhD faculties ≠ practical learning
  • - Old institute / grand infra ≠ quality training

Why not MBA or typical PG, why PGP?

BTech Civil + MBA in construction management is an odd combination and believe it, there are no job vacancies for such candidates in Indian Civil Industry. MBA gives general business administration skills which are not useful for civil engineers in sites / projects. Subjects like marketing, organizational behaviour, HR, operation research, economics etc that are taught in MBA do not add any value for civil engineers to handle jobs in core civil field. In infini’s PG program, basic important skills needed for managing a project / site are included such as people management, strategic decision making, project finance. Being a Project Manager, it is important to manager cost, schedule, risk, quality, stakeholders, communication which is taught in infini’s PGP.

Civil industry in India is growing by leaps and bounds.

Why 3.75 lakhs fees for 1 yr PGP?:Fit for purpose PGP.

Quality comes with cost. If you are suffering from a major illness then to have a correct diagnosis & right treatment you prefer a well-known specialist than a general physician. It is like that. We have best industry experts (not junior level professors or pure academicians), life coaches, counsellors, yoga trainers. It is a cost being paid towards efforts put up by 12 such subject matter experts who work continuously for 1 long year on your development. Why you go with Nike or Addidas brand than a local made shoe? It’s quality that gives you comfort, quality and long life. So, when it comes to your career why to compromise? If you want to build confidence, get site experience, develop personality, learn software and soft skills, build attitude, and ultimately get good job of 4-6 lakh package, you got to believe in investment in infini’s PGP. This investment is far lesser than 16-17 lakh being charged by some institutes and gives no assurance of career building. You may have an option to get a MTech or ME degree in 2 to 3 lakh as well without attending classes. It’s your choice whether to get one more degree or build a strong career by working on skills and personality gaps.

Hostel & Accommodation

Infini provides full support in getting a good accommodation in reasonable budget in the proximity of the institute. We have tie ups with boys and girls hostels & PG apartments owners which are within 2 Km distance. Cost of living (food and stay) in Pune is approx. 7000 to 8000/- a month that depends on lifestyle. There are ample options of mess available to get variety of food in nearby hotels and mess like Maharashtrian, South Indian, Nagpur style, Punjabi, Jain food etc.

Why not online? : As swimming, civil engineering can’t be taught in classroom

Studies of civil engineering is like learning swimming; which is not possible by classroom lectures. One has to be trained on-site to know work culture and site adaptation. On site testing & dealing with live challenges can’t be replaced by lab practicals & one day site visit. On-sites issues and their solution identification can’t be modelled into few mathematical problems or formulae. One has to understand all logic of managing resources and a project, deal with labourers, face clients, attend audits. It needs live training on site to understand pain in meeting tight deadlines and achieving scope. It is not possible online or by classroom coaching.
