Union Minister Shri Nitin Gadkari launches MIT-WPU’s School of Sub-Surface Engineering MIT Executive President dedicates it for Nation building
New Delhi, 15th November 2017: MIT World Peace University (MIT-WPU), one of the leading educational institutions in India, announced the opening of the School of Sub-surface engineering in the capital city of Delhi. The announcement was made in the august presence of Union Minister of Road, Transport & Highways Shri Nitin Gadkari. The school will have a postgraduate course and will be available to students as a Certificate course (3 months), M.Tech program (2 Years) and PhD programs. Students can apply for these courses both through online and offline media. The teaching pedagogy will be a blend of theory and practical training so that engineers will have hands-on exposure to the real world.
India is quickly escalating its economy through the rapid growth of its infrastructure. With over 950 kms of projects under various stages of execution and 2500 kms of projects that are under planning stage, India is on a fast paced road to the future. These plans are in sectors varying from roads, hydropower, water transport, sewage and irrigation to name a few. Owing to the limited expertise in subsurface engineering, the Indian infrastructure sector will face a massive deficit of skill in the near future. The move to start a specialized school in subsurface engineering is a testimony to the fact that a strong, educated, well trained and skilled workforce is key to India’s growth and expansion in the future.
Hon’ble Shri. Nitin Gadkari, Union Minister of Road, Transport, Highways, Shipping and Water Resources, River Development, Ganga Rejuvenation, Government of India stated, “With rapid urbanization, there comes a need to have robust infrastructure. In India, we have seen the emergence of newer technologies which are addressing the infrastructure issues. Subsurface engineering is one such area which will help in easing not just infrastructure issues but can help in many other domains. I am glad that MIT WPU has sensed the need of the future and decided to create future-ready talent at their SubSurface Engineering School and help the nation. ”
Mr. Rahul Karad Executive President, MIT World Peace University emphasizes, “India is at a take off stage in terms of its infrastructure and civil projects in sectors as diverse as transport to hydro power. Even though there are professionals in this field, India is facing a dire deficit in terms of skill. We at MIT-WPU recognize this gap, and have therefore introduced this platform to formally teach subsurface engineering at this new school. All aspects of this course are at par with our international counterparts.”
MIT-WPU has been working on developing and leading the engineering teaching methodologies, which will ensure highly skilled students enter the workforce. With the introduction of this unique school and curriculum, trained professionals will improve India’s infrastructure while proving to be an important and sought after career path for students
