The MBA In Infrastructure program is a boutique program at SCMHRD, with an aim to equip young engineers in the field of infrastructure development and management. Based on the economic thought, that a country’s development depends directly on the level of infrastructure development, SCMHRD took upon the challenge to partake in the nation building process, back in 2010, when the momentum in the sector was just about building up.
Since 2015, the curriculum design has undergone dramatic changes, keeping in line with the governments focus areas in the sector. A partnership with Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) elevated the program’s mission to participate in nation building. 26 students found the internship opportunity with PMC, and assisted in the smart city vision document preparation. Their efforts were appreciated and recognized to have helped Pune secure the 2nd place in the country-wide competition. In 2016, 52 students were inducted at PMC again, to implement the projects envisioned under the city’s smart city mission.
The program continues to emphasize in the importance of hands-on experience for its students, complimenting the rigorous classroom training. Internship opportunities are in the pipeline with Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) and Pune Metro Region Development Authority (PMRDA). Projects, on which students shall work vary from Roads construction, Waste disposal, Innovative methods for reducing traffic congestion, Green energy, among other such civic issues.
