The need for higher studies has always been a priority for students. But in recent years a specialization course or a masters degree has been fueled by the competitive career path and employment opportunities. Therefore, students from a background of B.tech and B.arch also consider a postgraduate degree after a few years of work experience.
Having a postgraduate degree in your core subject holds a lot of value as far as your professional career is concerned. This is also a reason why students opt for higher education to boost their career and reach their goals faster.
Right now, there is a huge demand for experienced professionals in various managerial and technical leadership positions. These roles provide great opportunities for individuals in terms of career growth, salary and experience.
Especially in the construction industry which is undergoing a massive shift, there is a sudden surge for experienced professionals in distinct roles across construction, real estate, and infrastructure who possess relevant techno-managerial skills.
XIME Bangalore understands these industry requirements and has, therefore, designed a specialization course that will help young professionals and students gain relevant knowledge in operational, managerial, sustainable, estimation, technical and environmental aspects of the construction industry.
If you are considering to join a post-graduate programme for construction management, here are 5 reasons you should opt for XIME’s construction management programme

With such experienced faculty at hand, students are prepared and nurtured to take over the industry even before they step in.
5. Frequent Industry visits
Practical assignments and top industry experts can provide only so much information and exposure to the students. Therefore to provide an extensive view of what the industry has to offer, XIME also conducts frequent visits to various construction sites and hosts industrial tours that are spread throughout the scope of the programme.
This kind of integrated learning and practical experience through frequent site visits help students gain practical knowledge and make them industry ready.
Hence these industry visits are most anticipated by students as well as faculty members.
The scope of construction has become much larger than it was before. In this day and age, where construction offers a large amount of employment to our young generation and also holds immense opportunities to grow, many students are opting for construction and civil professions from the very start. Therefore, to accelerate one’s career in the industry, a post-graduate degree plays a major role.
