Adani University

Integrated B.Tech (Civil & Infrastructure Engineering) + MBA (Project Management)


Construction industry in most countries account for 9% of GDP, and Indian construction and real estate industry account for more than 30% investment.

The size of construction industry is INR 3049 billion (2022) and employs 16% of the working population. As per recent economic survey, India will require investments of around US$ 4.5 trillion by 2040 to develop the infrastructure for sustaining economic growth.

Ministry of Statistics and Program Implementation (MoSPI) reported that out of 1753 infrastructure projects in first financial quarter (Q1) in 2023; 51% are time delayed, 20% are cost overrun & time delayed, while just 1% finished before time. NITI Aayog has been advocating various measures for de-bottlenecking and improving the performance of infrastructure projects. The suggested measures include efficiency in procurement, investments through risk sharing, lots of efforts at pre-planning stage, improving stakeholder management, and leveraging technology and establishing robust project governance.

NITI Aayog created a taskforce to look into the issues of cost overrun and time delays and recommended creation of an organization by the name of National Institute of Chartered Program and Project Professionals (NICPP) to create a professional program to train government officials and also infrastructure companies leading to a certification of Project and Program Professionals who would then plan and execute government sponsored projects. Although this system, was conceived for people having a minimum of five-to-twenty years’ experience, in the infrastructure sector, it has laid emphasis on graduates to be trained through Project Management in the Infrastructure sector so that they are ready to work in reputed companies and over the years gain this important certification through the government.

NITI Aayog has come-up with an Indian Infrastructure Body of Knowledge (InBoK) guidelines clearly outlines demand in project management professionals for civil infrastructure projects. This course is based on the recommendations of the NITI, for the first time in an Indian University. This course is aimed to provide our graduates a head-start in the infrastructure landscape of the country.

Mega projects are complex, the technologies and management approaches involved are continuously evolving adapt to the changing needs. There is high demand for change makers as better project engineers and project managers for specialised infrastructure projects being implemented in Vikshit Bharat.

It is estimated that just by training people in the emerging skills, the GDP of the country can be increased by nearly 5%. For a diverse country like India, expectations of every young graduate are to work in a multi-cultural global environment. Infrastructure companies are competing around the world, in creating huge infrastructure projects world over. It is estimated that young Indian graduates, trained within the country, will find extensive employment opportunities across the world, once they are trained well in Civil Infrastructure along with Project Management skills. No other university could have created such a course, except the Adani University, because Adani Group is the biggest group having extensive experience in infrastructure development not only in Ports development, airports development, real-estate development but also transformative development of socially disadvantaged housing clusters etc. which adds to the story of a developed India. This course is a tribute to the national aspiration, through a humble effort to create trained professionals in one of the most emerging sectors of economic activity in the country.

Program Uniqueness

Since last 70-years each National Education Policy recommended industry-University/ Institute collaboration, however it has been a challenging task for many Indian institutions due to their inability to attract Industry effectively in creating their curriculum as well as teaching it with professional inputs. Lots of Universities in India are running such programs, but Adani University’s civil infrastructure engineering department has been at a huge advantage, due to its close association with the biggest group having huge investment in this sector. Their experiences over the years in facing challenges and creating innovative solutions leading to huge success, is carefully curated in the course structure giving it an anecdotal teaching and learning environment. The following are the few program differentiators:

  • Options to earn “BSc” after 3-years, “BTech (Honors)” and “BTech with minor in Project Management” after 4-years,
  • Unique integrated program having balanced 50:50 techno-managerial components, and equal theory and practical components weightage.
  • Student choice-based electives with hybrid pedagogical model to build domain specific futuristic skills in infrastructure sector,
  • Departmental Board of Studies has serving members from reputed international academia, national institutions of repute, and industry leaders from Nihon University Japan, California State University USA, Howe Engineering Projects India, CBRI Roorkee, and Adani Group to help design the program,
  • Faculty drawn from international infrastructure background including corporate conglomerates are teaching the course, Many Adjunct Professors from the Adani Group teach the course with their experiences of Infrastructure sector.
  • Immersive visits to mega infrastructure projects such as Seaport at Mundra; Airports at Ahmedabad, Jaipur, Lucknow, Mumbai; Greenfield Airports at Navi Mumbai; Urban rehabilitation project like Dharavi; Green energy park at Khavda (Kutch).
  • Industry internship opportunity with latest infrastructure projects
  • Skill based learning on latest computer software such as Staad Pro, Primavera, GIS, Autodesk, Revit, BIM.
  • A bouquet of elective courses through MOOCs created from famous online resources to help students get a Honors degree.
  • There could be a semester-abroad program with reputed university across the world.
