The app is intended for use by the Beat patrol officers of the Kanchipuram police force. Traditionally when the officers go for their Beat patrol, they inform about their location and presence manually to the higher authorities. This leads to various discrepancies, miscommunication and inaccuracy of information. In order to overcome these drawbacks, the E-Beat app helps in recording the attendance of the officers by means of scanning a QR code and retrieving their GPS location along with the photograph of the officer who is registering his attendance. All this data is then sent to a google sheet which is updated on a daily basis. This sheet is used by the higher authorities to register the attendance of the officers. Thus the E-Beat app ensures a high accuracy of the data which is being recorded and ensures there are no falsehoods in the data. Using the information from the Google sheet, the higher authorities can direct officers who are present nearby a particular location to take any required action or to mobilise them.

The project was done completely under the guidance of the DSP of Sriperumbudur - Mr Rajesh Kannan IPS and the SP of Kanchipuram - Mr Santhosh Hadimani IPS . Our Principal ,Dr Ganesh Vaidhyanathan and the Hod’s offered their fullest support and coordination for the above project.

The Student Council pioneered an initiative called "Plant a Sapling" in our campus and distributed 200 saplings to the first year students. Each student tied a Rakhi to the sapling, thus creating a bond with the sapling and also took an oath to grow it with care. This was done in association with an NGO called Keezhvanam. Unlike regular sapling distribution events where there is no follow up on the state of the saplings, this time, each student shared the location (latitude, longitude) of the plant and will also post updates regarding growth of the plant over time to the NGO, through a seperate whatsapp group created for the same.

How many of us know that the prospect of marine engineers greatly depends on the Shipping and Logistics sector? In order to understand this, one needs to know the logistics market better.    SHIPPING AND LOGISTICS SECTOR Shipping Industry is very crucial and extensive for the development of any country.  The economy based on sea trade is aptly termed as “Blue Economy.”  According to the Ministry of Shipping, around 95 percent of India’s trading by volume and 70 percent by value is done through the transport services for the maritime industry. India has 12 major, and 205 notified minor and intermediate ports. Under the National Perspective Plan for Sagarmala, six new mega ports will be developed in the country.  The Indian ports and shipping industry plays a vital role in sustaining growth in the country’s trade and commerce. India is the sixteenth largest maritime country in the world, with a coastline of about 7,517 km. The Indian Government plays a vital role in supporting the ports sector. It has allowed Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) of up to 100 percent under the automatic route for port and harbor construction and maintenance projects. It has also facilitated a 10-year tax holiday to enterprises that develop, maintain, and operate ports, inland waterways, and inland ports.   SHIPPING LOGISTICS MARKET SIZE  During the Financial Year (FY) 2019-20, cargo traffic at major ports in the country was reported at 699.05 million tonnes (MT). Cargo traffic handled stood at 463.07 MT in 2019 (till November 2019). Cargo traffic at non-major ports was estimated at 529.6 MT during FY 2018-19 and grew at 10 percent CAGR between FY 2017-18 and reached 281.0 million tonnes in FY 2018-19 (up to Sep 18). The major ports had a capacity of 1,514.09. MT per annum by FY 2019-20 (partial). The Maritime Agenda 2010-20 has a 2020 target of 3,130 MT of port capacity. The government has taken several measures to improve operational efficiency through mechanization, deepening the draft, and speedy evacuations.    INVESTMENTS/ DEVELOPMENTS
  • In November 2019, JSW Infrastructure commissioned a new iron ore terminal at the Paradip port in Odisha with a capacity to handle up to 18 million tonnes of cargo per annum.
  • In November 2019, the first-ever movement of container cargo on Brahmaputra (National Waterway -2), focused on improving the connectivity to the North-Eastern Region (NER).
  • In October 2019, Ease of Doing Business-Implementation of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) based Port Access Control System (PACS) at Kolkata Dock System (KDS) was introduced.
  • JSW Infrastructure entered into a built, operate and transfer agreement with Paradip Port Trust at an investment of Rs 750 crore (US$107.31 million) to operate Paradip port.
  • In August 2019, India became the first country in the world to issue Biometric Seafarer Identity Document (BSID), capturing the facial biometric data of seafarers.
  • Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (APSEZ) became the first Indian port operator to handle cargo movement of 200 million tonnes (MT) in 2018-19.
  • Essar Ports will invest US$70 million in Hazira port by 2020.
  • The current Honourable Minister for Shipping, Road Transport and Highways, Government of India, has announced a massive investment in India’s ports and roads sector, which is likely to help boost the country’s economy. The Indian government plans to develop 10 coastal economic regions as part of plans to revive the country’s Sagarmala (string of ports) project.
  • The zones would be converted into manufacturing hubs, supported by port modernization projects, and could span 300–500 km of the coastline. The government is also looking to develop the inland waterway sector as an alternative to road and rail routes to transport goods to the nation’s ports and hopes to attract private investment within the sector.
  • The Ports sector in India has received a cumulative FDI of US$1.64 billion between April 2000 and March 2019.
  • Indian ports and shipping sector witnessed three M&A deals worth US$29 million in 2017.
  GOVERNMENT INITIATIVES  Some major initiatives taken by the government to promote the ports sector in India are as follows:
  • As of November 2019, several projects with a total project cost of Rs 13,308.41 crore (US$1.90 billion) have been awarded in the last three years on up-gradation of the major ports.
  • As of Union Budget 2019-20, the total allocation for the Ministry of Shipping is Rs 1,902.56 crore (US$272.22 million).
  • Net profit at major ports has increased from Rs 1,150 crore (US$178.4 million) in FY13 to Rs 3,413 crore (US$529.6 million) in FY18 while operating margin increased from 23 percent to 44 percent.
  • In May 2018, the Ministry of Shipping allowed foreign-flagged ships to carry containers for transshipment.
  • In March 2018, a revised Model Concession Agreement (MCA) was approved to make port projects more investor-friendly and make the investment climate in the sector more attractive.
  ROAD AHEAD
  • Increasing investments and cargo traffic points towards a healthy outlook for the Indian ports sector. Providers of services such as operation and maintenance (O&M), pilotage and harbouring, and marine assets such as barges and dredges are benefiting from these investments.
  • The capacity addition at ports is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5-6 percent till 2022, thereby adding 275-325 MT of capacity.
  • Under the Sagarmala Programme, the government has envisioned a total of 189 projects for the modernization of ports involving an investment of Rs 1.42 trillion (US$22 billion) by the year 2035.
  • The Ministry of Shipping has set a target capacity of over 3,130 MMT by 2020, which would be driven by participation from the private sector. Non-major ports are expected to generate over 50 percent of this capacity. 
  • India’s cargo traffic handled by ports is expected to reach 1,695 million metric tonnes by 2021-22, according to a report of the National Transport Development Policy Committee. 
  • Within the ports sector, projects worth an investment of US$10 billion have been identified and will be awarded over the coming five years.

 Read this article to get a complete understanding of what Marine engineering is and how it is an excellent career option!   MARINE ENGINEERING    Marine engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the operation and maintenance of several equipment onboard ships. The primary job of a Marine engineer onboard of the ship is: - To ensure the safety of the ship. - To ensure the safety of the people onboard.  - To check the safe transportation of cargo.  - To consider environmental protection.  Hence a marine engineer should be competent enough to maintain and operate all the types of machinery without exception onboard of the ship.  Marine Engineers are employable on foreign going and coastal trade ships of various types like Cargo ship, container ship, Oil & Chemical tankers, Car Carrier, LPG & LNG carriers, Off-shore vessels, Passenger ships, etc.    SCOPE OF DOING MARINE ENGINEERING  Marine engineering as a profession gives the scope for using theoretical knowledge into practice, which in turn provides fulfillment and job satisfaction. Let’s have a look at some of its’ benefits:  *A talented person joining this field at the age of around 22 - 24 years, can easily become a Chief Engineer of a ship in the shortest possible time (within 6 to 8 years).  *A medically fit marine engineer can continue to sail up to 70 years.   *Quick promotion to higher ranks in the sailing career is possible, as it depends only on passing the competency examinations along with associated skills possessed and not based on seniority or age.  *Intermittent short time sailing contracts are also possible as per the individual requirement to meet domestic personal commitments.  *Marine engineers are also employable in the Off-shore vessels, Oil platforms. Alternatively, shore-based careers can also be chosen in the Shipbuilding industry, Hospitality industry, Maritime education, Ports & Marine specific government jobs, etc.      BECOMING A MARINE ENGINEER     Pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Marine Engineering from a reputed, well known, and the well-graded institute has many advantages both during the sea career and later when the candidate opts for a shore job after quitting the seagoing job. Many public and private colleges offer undergraduate degrees in Marine Engineering, but some schools specialize in this particular arena. Marine Engineers are thoroughly involved in the design and operation of shipboard mechanical, thermal, hydraulics, electrical, electronics, and environmental systems as well as power plants. The sea career enables one to get a sound practical knowledge of all machinery and equipment, and also provides considerable confidence to face and solve the problems. Moving on to a Master’s Degree in Marine Engineering will often encompass a broader area of study, including Naval Architecture. Naval Architecture involves the overall structural design of ships and other vessels. Further higher studies like Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in the associated fields are also possible.   After years of experience at sea, finding a career in shore-based industries for marine engineers is very easy.

Marine engineers onboard the ship monitor the performance of all the machinery and equipment and carry out maintenance as per plan. Normally a ship may have four to five engineers or sometimes more, and each of them has their work schedule and responsibility clearly split out. All the engineers are under the supervision of the Chief Engineer, who ensures the safe operation of the machinery, the safety of personnel under him, and environmental protection. Marine engineers also carry out periodic performance evaluation of ships’ machinery and gather information for maintenance or an upcoming retrofit.  Offshore jobs for Marine Engineers may include spending time on the oil rigs to supervise maintenance or repair efforts involving the rig’s mechanical systems.   Based on the performance specifications of the vessel, marine engineers plan and operate the propulsion system to deliver the power required at maximum efficiency. They also operate the steering system, heating, cooling, and ventilation systems and hydraulics for the ship. If the nature of the job calls for a modification of the existing arrangement, design, or retrofit, the marine engineer views and suggestions are well considered by the designers. Once marine engineers know what equipment is to be installed and where each duct, machine, and power source is to be located, they prepare detailed plans. They create layouts and schematics, determine the work schedule, and prepare a cost estimate for approval by management. As the work progresses, marine engineers may conduct periodic inspections or tests to catch any issues as soon as possible. They ensure that design specifications are being followed, monitor the project budget, and prepare status reports for clients or managers. They also have the additional responsibility to ensure that the systems and machinery confer to the marine standards and specifications, which are well defined and accepted by all maritime nations.   WHERE DO MARINE ENGINEERS WORK? As seagoing vessels are used in various industries, a marine engineer can take his or her own pick about where they will work. Such as:-
  • Navy vessels where you can combine your naval career with your technical qualifications.
  • Manufacturers of shipping equipment.
  • Oil industries.
While they can work on vessels, there are shore job opportunities as well, such as -
  • Hotels that incorporate sea vessels in their services.
  • Government organizations.
  • Shipping companies.
  • Maritime Training Institutes. 
  • Marine Engineering firms.
  • Ship & Boat Building Industries.
MARINE ENGINEERING JOB PROFILES According to reports, the employment of marine engineers and naval architects is expected to grow 12% from the year 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Marine engineers land jobs in Shipping firms, Indian Navy, Shipyards, Engine manufacturing companies, Shipbuilding firms, Ship design firms, Maritime universities, Research Institutions, etc. CAREER ADVANCEMENT OPPORTUNITIES  IN MARINE ENGINEERING Marine engineers can advance into supervisory or management positions with experience. Typically, the USCG licenses can help marine engineers move up; as the level of license increases, responsibilities usually increase. Some marine engineers move into sales, using their technical knowledge to help clients plan and execute projects.   MARINE ENGINEERING ASSOCIATIONS Compared to some other engineering fields, Marine Engineering is a small and highly focused profession. However, there are opportunities for robust professional development and camaraderie. Probably the largest international group in this field is the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers. With membership around 8500, this organization is focused on its stated mission “to advance the art, science, and practice of naval architecture, shipbuilding, and marine engineering. India has an organization called “The Institute of Marine Engineers (INDIA)“ which helps in promoting knowledge and building relationships.
20th - April - 2020
In India, whenever one thinks of pursuing a graduation programme, engineering is always on the list. This is because time and again this field has shown how it has grown, adapted to the ever-evolving requirements and given students the knowledge and skills to pursue a fruitful career. Thanks to the increasing demand in the industry and improved scope, this field has branched into Mechanical, Civil, IT, Electronics and Telecommunications and other disciplines. One of these disciplines which stand strong and evergreen is Civil Engineering.  7 reasons why South India continues to be the most preferred destination for real estate The new policies implemented by the government have created structural changes in the Indian economy, and influenced by this, southern cities have become the focal point for future real estate developments. These cities are providing career opportunities in civil engineering.  Real estate in India has been experiencing dynamic transformation in recent times with a series of regulatory policies being brought about by the government. Reforms like RERA, demonetisation and GST have changed the landscape of real estate in the country. Even as these changes were being ushered in, South India continued to maintain momentum in real estate and has been a quiet crusader, strengthening and building itself as one of the most sought-after destinations in the country. Consequently, cities like Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad are now part of the global real estate map. The new policies implemented by the government have created structural changes in the Indian economy, and influenced by this, southern cities have become the focal point for future real estate developments.  By limiting new launches, focussing on completing delayed projects and aiming for projects that match consumer demand, housing performance has been fairly good in South India. According to Magicbricks‘s Prop Index Report for Q4 2019, South Indian cities of Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad have emerged as the best performing market for 2019. This approach has been in direct contrast to markets like Delhi NCR and Mumbai, where the developers are facing the challenge of huge inventory pile up, contrary to the situation in South India. As per a recent report, Bangalore and Hyderabad should be Asia’s fastest and third fastest-growing cities, respectively, over 2020-24. Bangalore should also achieve average annual real GDP growth of 9.9% over 2020-2024 – far above aggregate growth for India of 6.8% and average growth for Asian cities of 3.9% over the same period. Hence, this situation should support demand for investment in property in South India. There are a few key factors outlining why South India has become the preferred destination for real estate in recent times.  
  1. Presence of robust infrastructure:
Public transport and connectivity are good in the Southern cities and are being made robust further through multiple infrastructure projects. Metro connectivity will completely transform the way people travel, and being pollution-free, it will change the real estate dynamics positively. In Bangalore, the planned key developments are the completion of the metro with lines covering Whitefield, Bidadi, Bangalore International Airport and Bannerghatta region. A vast suburban rail system has also been planned around Bangalore apart from the construction of the Peripheral Ring Road. Similarly, a 3-deck elevated corridor is all set to give Chennai’s Old Mahabalipuram Road (OMR) a makeover as the government is planning a multi-deck elevated transport corridor under two phases to decongest the IT Expressway. The developments have compelled many residents to relocate from old residential zones to the new residential hotspots like OMR and ECR in Chennai.  
  1. Strong IT and Start-up growth:
The astounding growth of the information technology industry, multinationals and public industries in Southern India is to be taken note of. Southern India, especially cities like Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad have emerged as the main arm of the outsourcing business for the US, UK and Europe. With more foreign investors looking to establish their IT back offices in the prime locations of South India, the scope for corporate real estate is immensely high. Start-ups too have emerged very strongly in this region with Bangalore becoming the start-up capital of India. Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad are among top 10 cities for start-ups in the country, which now has over 20,000 registered start-ups.  
  1. Availability of land at reasonable pricing:
The vast availability of land at reasonable prices in the Southern metros as compared to Mumbai and Delhi has led to higher demand for luxury housing. The presence of a high number of urban professionals both from within the cities and due to high migration from other cities seeking enhanced prospects has created a major demand for luxury housing in Southern India.  
  1. Housing demand across segments:
South India also has a mixed housing development ranging from high-rises to luxury townships that offer access to world-class amenities in a location. The new developments have transformed the skyline of South India with reputed developers initiating landmark projects in metros like Bangalore and Chennai.  
  1. High retail growth:
Metros in South India have also seen a sharp rise in retail and commercial growth. A slew of supermarkets, malls and leading retail chains has emerged to cater to the rising demand. Millennial have been the driving force behind this change as they seek a superior lifestyle. To cater to their pristine tastes, international and premium Indian brands among others have made their presence felt in the South.  
  1. Social infrastructure:
South India has always been at the forefront of health and education. Some of the biggest brands in healthcare, and the numerous colleges and universities of repute have their presence in Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad. Millennial and their families have been attracted to these cities due to the availability of a wide choice.  
  1. Increased Demand from NRIs:
Owing to the vast presence of physical and social infrastructure, the on-time completion of real estate projects and good track record of developers, NRIs are attracted to invest in South India. The overall NRI investment in the primary real estate market in India is estimated to grow to nearly $25 billion by 2022 and a good portion of this is expected to be invested in South India. Quick and high capital appreciation too makes the region an attractive destination for real estate investment. Also, the rupee hovers at levels that inspire NRIs to stick with their investment.   In conclusion, it can be said that South Indian cities like Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad are growing at a fast pace with specific micro-markets like Hebbal and Bannerghatta in Bangalore, OMR in Chennai and Shankarapally in Hyderabad performing very well. Real estate houses have immense opportunities in the South to turn people’s dreams into reality and investment into wealth. They are creating the scope of civil engineering in the private sector as well as government sector. A conducive investment climate, the presence of a dynamic professional class, a well-developed corporate ecosystem, and the rapid rise of co-working spaces have all brought sheen to real estate in South India which will experience further boom in the coming years. The next few years look promising for the real estate industry in South India, especially for those firms who have the expertise to add value and capitalize on these opportunities.

India needs Civil engineering skill development for the booming construction industry by India Today

The construction industry will become India's largest employer by 2022 with 72 million employees. But what does India need to do to supply skilled engineers?

For a developing country like India, infrastructure is predominant for the economic progress of the country. With India's GDP projected at 7.8 per cent in 2019, skilled professionals are the need of the hour to achieve a continued progression. Being a capital-intensive industry, construction is an imminent contributor to the national economy as the range of consumers of the construction market has varied over the years. As per industry estimates, the size of India's construction industry is expected to be USD 1 trillion by 2030 and contribute to 13 percent of the country's GDP by 2025. Considered as the fastest growing industry, construction is poised to become the largest employer by 2022, employing more than 75 million people. With close to 1.5 million engineers graduating in India every year, the country needs approximately 4 million civil engineers on an average, over the next decade, to deliver potential real estate space and planned infrastructure. Despite the legacy of civil engineering in India, and the huge requirement for qualified professionals working to develop the gaps in infrastructure and real estate, this field of study hasn't flourished, with the construction sector seeing a 6.27 percent decline in employment according to a recent survey. Raising skill levels, properly equipping the workforce, providing improved welfare and ensuring greater safety on sites will motivate workers and empower them to raise productivity.  

Future of Civil Engineering in India in The Next Ten Years- Business World 

In India, whenever one thinks of pursuing a graduation programme, engineering is always on the list. This is because time and again this field has shown how it has grown, adapted to the ever-evolving requirements and given students the knowledge and skills to pursue a fruitful career. Thanks to the increasing demand in the industry and improved scope, this field has branched into Mechanical, Civil, IT, Electronics and Telecommunications and other disciplines. One of these disciplines which stand strong and evergreen is Civil Engineering.  According to the definition, this branch deals with the design, construction and maintenance of manually or naturally-built environments such as roads, bridges, dams, airports, buildings and more. It is the art of applying Mathematics and Science to create a better place for everyone to live in. From stone-made bridges to cable-stayed eight-lane bridges, we have come a long way only because of successful Civil Engineering. Despite the role this branch plays in the development of our country, many students often prefer opting for other disciplines. This is mainly because students are unaware of the scope and the future of Civil Engineering in India in the next ten years. So, let us delve into the understanding of what the future of Civil Engineering entails.  

NRI investments in Indian real estate to rise to $13.1 bn in FY21

Once a limited force, the expatriate community currently accounts for a sizable part of Indian housing demand.

In the past few years, NRIs have come strength to strength in the Indian housing market. Once a limited force, the expatriate community currently accounts for a sizable part of Indian housing demand. As per a report by 360 Realtors, India’s leading real estate advisory, in FY 21, a total of $13.1 billion of NRI capital is expected to enter the Indian housing industry, growing by 5% on a YoY basis. As a leading player in the NRI space, 360 Realtors has been tracking the NRI buying patterns over the past few years. As per the data available with the company, NRI investments will rise to $13.1 billion in FY 21 from $6 billion in FY 14, growing by a little less than a CAGR of 11%. Major sources of NRI investments include the USA, Canada, GCC, UK, Singapore, Malaysia, etc. Interestingly, GCC is the biggest source of NRI investments, accounting for around 42% of the total investment inflow. As there is no citizenship option available in the Gulf region, it is natural for the expatriates living there to buy a home in India. NRIs are one of the crucial growth drivers for the Indian real estate. Post RERA implementation, the confidence levels of NRIs have gone through the roof. Interestingly, NRIs are not buying for end-use, but many are entering the market with a pure-play investment purpose. There are many NRIs who are maintaining a portfolio of properties,” said Ankit Kansal, Founder & MD, 360 Realtors.  

Commercial real estate to continue to do well in 2020

The real estate sector is facing tough times for some time now, but the commercial segment is still doing well and also getting the maximum attention of investors.

The commercial segment is still doing well and also getting the maximum attention of investors. In fact, 2019 saw a total PE inflow of $970 million into Indian retail, and commercial realty attracted the maximum private equity investments, totaling nearly $3 billion in the first three quarters. In the retail sector, vacancy levels have come down to 14 per cent in the calendar year 2019. Approximately 7 million square feet of retail space is expected to enter the market in the year 2020, thereby contributing to the overall robust growth of the real estate sector in India. Growth in this segment is good as investors show great interest in commercial and recently NRIs have also started investing in this segment mainly because of lucrative returns. When we compare the investment in commercial with residential, then it can be said that returns from commercial are better. An increasing number of private equity funds showed interest in the commercial office space in 2018, which was followed by the same in 2019. And now with news of India’s first REIT trickling in, the trend of commercial office space having an upper hand in real estate assets will stay. There is likelihood of further infusion of liquidity in commercial property and developers will come up with more projects in this segment. Hence, it will create ample civil engineering job opportunities for the future aspirants.

Aspiring to become a civil engineer? But not sure about your decision?    Read this article to get the complete understanding of the real estate industry in India and job opportunities for the new entrants and how SVCE helps to pursue your dream career in this core sector.  Civil Engineering is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines, Civil Engineering involves planning, designing, constructing, maintaining and supervising infrastructures which include facilities essential to modern life like highways, bridges and tunnels, schools, hospitals, airports and other buildings, sewage systems and water treatment facilities. Subsequently, the course also involves protecting the public and environmental health as well as improving existing infrastructure. Introduction The real estate sector is one of the most globally recognized sectors. The real estate sector comprises four sub-sectors - housing, retail, hospitality, and commercial. Students are unaware of the scope and the future of Civil Engineering in India in the next ten years. So, let us delve into the understanding of what the civil engineering future trends entails. The growth of this sector well complements the growth of the corporate environment as it will give way to the demand for office space as well as urban and semi-urban accommodations. The construction industry ranks third among the 14 major sectors in terms of direct, indirect and induced effects in all sectors of the economy. It is also expected that this sector will incur more non-resident Indian (NRI) investments in both the short term and the long term. Bengaluru is expected to be the most favored property investment destination for NRIs, followed by Ahmedabad, Pune, Chennai, Goa, Delhi, and Dehradun.   Some of the major investments and developments in this sector are as follows:
  • First REIT raised Rs 4,750 crore (US$ 679.64 million) and was launched earlier in 2019 by the global investment firm Blackstone and realty firm Embassy group.
  • In January 2019, Ascendas acquired Chennai's Pallavaram IT Park for US$ 35.70 million.
  • Iconic RK Studios property which is located in suburban Chembur, acquired by Godrej Properties.
  • New housing launches across top seven cities in India are expected to increase 32 per cent year-on-year by 2018 end to 193,600 units.
  • In September 2018, Embassy Office Parks announced that it would raise around Rs 52 billion (US$ 775.66 million) through India’s first Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) listing.
  • New housing launches across top seven cities in India increased 50 per cent quarter-on-quarter in April-June 2018.
  • In May 2018, Blackstone Group acquired One Indiabulls in Chennai from Indiabulls Real Estate for around Rs 900 crore (US$ 136.9 million).
  • In February 2018, DLF bought 11.76 acres of land for Rs 15 billion (US$ 231.7 million) for its expansion in Gurugram, Haryana.
Government Initiatives for civil engineering future plans The central and state Government of India have taken several initiatives to encourage development in this sector. The Smart City Project, to build 100 smart cities, is a prime opportunity for real estate companies. Below are some of the other major Government Initiatives:
  • In order to revive around 1,600 stalled housing projects across the top cities in the country, the Union Cabinet has approved the setting up of an Rs 25,000 crore (US$ 3.58 billion) alternative investment fund (AIF).
  • Blackstone crosses the US$ 12 billion investment milestone in India.
  • Puravankara Ltd, a realty firm plans to invest around Rs 850 crore (US$ 121.6 million) over the next four years to develop three ultra-luxury residential projects in Bengaluru, Chennai and Mumbai.
  • Under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) [PMAY (U)], 1.12 crore houses have been sanctioned in urban areas creating 1.20 crore jobs.
  • The Government has created an Affordable Housing Fund (AHF) in the National Housing Bank (NHB) with an initial corpus of Rs 10,000 crore (US$ 1.43 billion) using priority sector lending shortfall of banks/financial institutions for micro financing of the HFCs.
  • As of September 16, 2019, India had formally approved 419 SEZs, of which 234 were in operation.
  • In February 2018, creation of National Urban Housing Fund was approved with an outlay of Rs 60,000 crore (US$ 9.27 billion).
Road Ahead The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has given its approval for the Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) platform, which will help in allowing all kinds of investors to invest in the Indian real estate market. It would create an opportunity worth Rs 1.25 trillion (US$ 19.65 billion) in the Indian market over the years. Responding to an increasingly well-informed consumer base and, bearing in mind the aspect of globalisation, Indian real estate developers have shifted gears and accepted fresh challenges. The most marked change has been the shift from family-owned businesses to that of professionally managed ones. Real estate developers are also investing in centralised processes to source material and organise manpower and hiring qualified professionals in areas like project management, architecture, and engineering to meet the growing need of managing multiple projects across cities, The growing flow of FDI into Indian real estate is encouraging increased transparency. Developers have revamped their accounting and management systems to meet due diligence standards to attract funding.  In 2019, housing affordability showed a marked improvement. We also saw a plethora of launches in the market. In 2020, Knight Frank expects the GDP growth to touch 6-6.5% by next year. It also expects the real estate sector to maintain its momentum. Despite the weakness in the economy, real estate remained stable in 2019 and could revive in the new year, says a report by Knight Frank. Housing prices either fell or remained flat. Among the launches,  61% were in the affordable housing segment. Now, Knight Frank expects the gross domestic product (GDP) growth to touch 6-6.5% by next year. It also expects the real estate sector to maintain its momentum. Here’s how prices and sales moved in eight top metros in India. Scope of Civil Engineering: Civil engineering demand According to a report published in The Economic Times, 95 billion sq. Ft. is the predicted demand in the real estate and construction industry by 2020. Despite such high demand, the sector lacks sufficient workforce to meet this demand. Based on the report titled "Real Estate and Construction Professionals in India by 2020" by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, there is a demand-supply gap ranging between 82% and 86% of skilled civil engineers, architects, and others. This means our country needs 4 million skilled civil engineers until next year. These are a few statistics that make it clear that there is a massive demand for these professionals in the near future. Growth As a country, we are developing faster than ever, especially when it comes to infrastructure. Forty years ago, nobody would have thought that the commute between Bandra and Worli could have been completed in lesser than 40-50 minutes. Today, we can cover this distance in just eight minutes. This is only possible due to the Bandra-Worli Sea Link (BWSL) constructed in the Arabian sea, built by our civil engineers. The BSWL is just one of the many examples that show how we are coming up with innovative solutions to meet the changing requirements. The requirement for such modern developments is bound to grow. If students are willing to work on groundbreaking developments, Civil Engineering provides them with room to grow and a chance to hone their skills. International market value The future of Civil Engineering is not just limited to the geographical boundaries of our country. According to a report by Global Market Insights Inc. on GlobeNewswire, the Civil Engineering industry is expected to reach a size of USD 11.72 trillion by 2025. One of the main reasons for such rapid development of this engineering discipline is the rise in population and urbanisation. By completing a programme from one of the best engineering institutes, students can work on sustainable infrastructure solutions, green buildings, and more all over the globe. Variety Today, Civil Engineering is not just related to constructing roads, buildings and bridges. Due to the advancement in technology, and industry-demand, this branch is further divided into 4-5 types. Civil engineering aspirant can consider leading a career in any one of the engineering niches mentioned below:
  • Hydraulics & Water Resources
  • Coastal and ocean
  • Structural
  • Transportation
  • Materials
  • Urban

These are just a few fields. As we develop, this branch will have a lot more to offer than it did ten years ago.

These are a few points that explain how and why this sector will boom very soon. This field has a lot to offer. We only need to learn how to make the most of it with the right kind of education and skills. With this unique combination, Civil Engineering aspirants are set for a brighter tomorrow.

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING  Chemical engineering is the type of discipline that influences numerous areas of technology. In broad terms, chemical engineers conceive and design processes to produce, transform, and transport materials — beginning with experimentation in the laboratory, followed by implementing the technology in full-scale production.  Chemical engineers are in high demand because of the large number of industries that depend on the synthesis and processing of chemicals and materials. Besides traditional careers in the chemical, energy, and oil industries, chemical engineers enjoy increasing opportunities in various other fields such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, electronic device fabrication, environmental engineering, etc. The unique training of the chemical engineer becomes essential in these areas when processes involve the chemical or physical transformation of matter.  For example, chemical engineers working in the chemical industry investigate the creation of new polymeric materials with important electrical, optical, or mechanical properties. This requires attention not only to the synthesis of the polymer but also to the flow and forming processes necessary to create a final product. In biotechnology, chemical engineers help design production facilities that use microorganisms and enzymes to synthesize new drugs. Problems in environmental engineering that engage chemical engineers include the development of processes (catalytic converters, effluent treatment facilities) to minimize the release of or deactivate products harmful to the environment.  To do these jobs, the chemical engineer must have a complete and quantitative understanding of both the engineering and scientific principles underlying these technological processes. This is reflected in the curriculum of the Chemical Engineering Department at SVCE, which includes the study of: -   Applied mathematics   Material and energy balances   Thermodynamics   Fluid mechanics   Energy and mass transfer   Separations technologies   Chemical reaction kinetics and reactor design   Process design.   These courses are built on a foundation in the sciences of chemistry, physics, and biology.  THE IMPACT OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERS ON OUR DAY-TO-DAY LIFE  Chemical engineers have been improving our wellbeing for more than a century. From the development of smaller, faster computer chips to innovations in recycling, treating disease, cleaning water, and generating energy, the processes, and products that chemical engineers have helped create touch every aspect of our lives. Not just these, they have even achieved in various other fields such as bold innovators, new frontiers in the areas of energy, the environment, biomedicine, electronics, food production, materials, etc.  CHEMICAL ENGINEERING TOUCHES EVERYTHING  It would take too long to list all the products that are impacted by chemical engineers, but knowing what type of industries employ them may help you comprehend the scope of their work. Chemical engineers work in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, design and construction, pulp and paper, petrochemicals, food processing, specialty chemicals, microelectronics, electronic and advanced materials, polymers, business services, biotechnology, and environmental health and safety industries, etc.  THE IMPORTANCE OF MATH AND SCIENCE IN CHEMICAL ENGINEERING   Within these industries, chemical engineers rely on their knowledge of mathematics and science—particularly chemistry — to overcome technical problems safely and economically. They draw upon and apply their engineering knowledge to solve various technical challenges that we encounter. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that chemical engineers only “make things,” though. Their expertise is also applied in the areas of law, education, publishing, finance, and medicine, as well as in many other fields that require technical training.  WHAT ARE THE SPECIFIC JOB FUNCTIONS OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERS?   Specifically, chemical engineers improve food processing techniques, and methods of producing fertilizers, to increase the quantity and quality of available food. 
  • They also construct synthetic fibres that make our clothes more comfortable and water-resistant. 
  •  They develop methods to mass-produce drugs, making them more affordable. 
  • They create safer, more efficient methods of refining petroleum products, making energy and chemical sources more productive and cost-effective. 
  • Chemical engineers also develop solutions to environmental problems, such as pollution control and remediation. 
 They process chemicals, which are used to make or improve almost everything we see around us.    DUTIES OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERS  Chemical engineers typically do the following:
  • Conduct research to develop new and improved manufacturing processes. 
  • Develop safety procedures for those working with potentially dangerous chemicals. 
  • Develop processes to separate components of liquids and gases or to generate electrical currents using controlled chemical processes. 
  • Design and plan the layout of the equipment. 
  • Do tests and monitor the performance of processes throughout production. 
  • Troubleshoot problems with manufacturing processes. 
  • Evaluate equipment and processes to ensure compliance with safety and environmental regulations. 
  • Estimate production costs for management. 
  • Some chemical engineers specialize in a particular process, such as oxidation (a reaction of oxygen with chemicals to make other chemicals) or polymerization (making plastics and resins). Others specialize in a particular field, such as nanomaterials (making extremely small substances), biological engineering, or in developing specific products. 
Chemical engineers also work in producing energy, electronics, food, clothing, and paper. They work in research in life sciences, biotechnology, and business services.   Chemical engineers must know all aspects of the manufacturing of chemicals, drugs, or other products. They must also understand how the manufacturing process affects the environment and the safety of workers and consumers.  Chemical engineers face many of the same challenges that other professionals face, and they meet these challenges by applying their technical knowledge, communication, and teamwork skills; the most up-to-date practices available; and hard work. Benefits include financial reward, recognition within industry and society, and the gratification that comes from working with the processes of nature to meet the needs of society and community.  SOME OF THE PLACES WHERE CHEMICAL ENGINEERS ARE IN DEMAND    Chemical Engineers are in demand at various places such as:   Mineral-based industries   Petrochemical plants   Synthetic fiber units   Petroleum refining plants   Chemical industries   Refineries   Pharmaceutical companies   Paint manufacturers   Fertilizer industry   Textiles sector   Plastics and    Explosives    SCOPE OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERS IN INDIA  Scope of Chemical Engineering in India is growing as research organizations, laboratories, defense establishments, atomic power plants, and forensic investigation departments also need chemical engineering experts. The Department of Biochemical Engineering is often seen as one of the most popular sub-branches of Chemical Engineering. Other sub-areas that attract engineering students with alluring career prospects are Nanotechnology and Environmental Engineering.   THE TYPES OF INDUSTRIES FOR CHEMICAL ENGINEERS  Chemical engineers work in manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, design and construction, pulp and paper, petrochemicals, food processing, specialty chemicals, microelectronics, electronic and advanced materials, polymers, business services, biotechnology, and environmental health and safety industries. It has been observed that most students, especially girls, who choose Chemical Engineering as their core discipline, generally drift to Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, and Environmental Engineering during their specialization phase. Among the conventional Chemical Engineering streams, there are Ceramics, Chemical Processes, Electrochemical Processes, Molecular Chemistry based fields, Fertilizers & Pesticides, and Plastics & Polymers that are still in vogue.  TEN JOB TITLES OF CHEMICAL ENGINEERS   Chemical engineers can be hard to identify, not just because most people aren’t clear about what chemical engineering actually is, but because chemical engineers rarely can be identified by the job title – chemical engineer!  To help dispel this confusion, we have compiled a list of ten titles of various job opportunities in chemical engineering, that chemical engineers typically fill:  Process engineer Chemical engineers often describe themselves as process engineers. Although Process engineering occurs throughout the full range of chemical engineering sectors, a process engineer will typically work to design engineering packages, develop new ideas and processes, and monitor and maintain plant systems.  Fire and explosions engineer Chemical engineers are extremely focused on improving and maintaining process safety. The ability to design and implement fire and explosion protection systems is imperative in ensuring public and industrial safety.

CLOUD COMPUTING 

Cloud Computing is a term where anything or everything is provided as a service over the Internet. These are broadly divided into three categories: Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Cloud computing was inspired by the cloud symbol.  A cloud service has three distinct characteristics that make it different from traditional web hosting. It is sold on demand, mainly by the minute or the hour, it is flexible as a user can have as much or as little of a service as they need at any given time, and the service is only managed by the provider.  A cloud may be private or public. A public cloud sells services to anyone who wants its services. Presently, Amazon Web Services is the largest public cloud provider. A private cloud is a network or a data center that supplies hosted services to a handful number of people. Private or public, the main aim of cloud computing is to provide easy, scalable access to computer resources and IT services.  Cloud Computing Characteristics and Benefits: 
  • Self Service Provisioning:  End users can use compute resources for almost any type of workload on demand. This eliminates the need for IT administrators to provide and manage compute resources. 
  • Elasticity: Corporations can scale up as computing needs increase and scale down again as demands decrease. This eliminates the need for massive investments in the infrastructure. 
  • Pay per use: Compute resources are measured at a granular level, enabling users to pay only for the resources and workloads they use. 
  • Workload resilience: Cloud service providers typically implement most occurring resources to keep storage and to keep important workloads of user’s running often across multiple global regions. 
  • Migration flexibility: Organizations will move certain workloads to or from the cloud or to different cloud platforms as desired for better cost savings or to use new services as they emerge. 
Types of Cloud Computing Services  Cloud computing has changed over time, it has been divided into three different service categories: infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS).  IaaS providers supply a virtual server instance and storage, and APIs that enable users to migrate workloads to a VM. Users have a fixed storage capacity and can start, stop, access and configure the VM and storage as we desire. IaaS providers offer small, medium, large clouds in addition to customized instances, for various workload needs.  In the PaaS model, cloud suppliers host development tools on their infrastructures. Users access these tools over the internet using web portals or gateway software. PaaS is used for general software development, and many PaaS suppliers host the software after it’s developed. PaaS providers include Salesforce, AWS Elastic Beanstalk and Google App Engine.  SaaS is a distribution model that delivers software applications across the internet; these applications are called web services. Users will access SaaS applications and services from any location using a computer or mobile device that has internet connection. Most common example of a SaaS application is Microsoft Office 365 for productivity and email services.   

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE and DATA SCIENCE 

John McCarthy, who named the term in 1956 and defines it as “the science and engineering of making intelligent machines.  Some other names for the field have been proposed, which are computational intelligence, synthetic intelligence or computational rationality.  Artificial intelligence is also used to describe a property of machines or programs which is the intelligence that the system demonstrates. Artificial Intelligence research uses tools and information from many fields, including computer science, psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, cognitive science, linguistics, probability, optimization and logic.  Artificial Intelligence analysis also overlaps with tasks such as robotics, control systems, data mining, logistics, speech recognition, facial recognition and many other tasks. Learning of the machine is based on empirical data and is associated with non-symbolic AI, scruffy AI and soft computing.  Application of AI  Gaming: AI plays a major role in strategic games such as chess, poker, tic-tac-toe, etc., where machines have to think of a large number of possible positions. Natural Language Processing: It has now been made possible to interact with the computer that understands the language spoken by humans. Expert Systems: There are some special applications that integrate machines, software, and special data to impart reasoning and advising. They provide explanations and recommendations to the users. Vision Systems: These are the systems that understand, observe, interpret, and comprehend visual input on the computer. For example,oA spying airplane takes photographs, which are used to figure out spatial information or map of the areas. nowadays, Doctors use the clinical expert system to diagnose the patient. police using computer software that is able to recognize the face of a criminal with the stored portrait created by a forensic artist.  Speech Recognition: Some intelligent systems have the capability of hearing and understanding the language in terms of sentences and their meanings while a human talks to it. It will still recognize your voice if you use different accents, slang words, noise in the background, change in human noise due to cold, etc. Handwriting Recognition: The handwriting recognition software reads the text which is written on paper by a pen or on the screen by a stylus. It is also able to recognize the shapes of the letters and convert them into editable text. Intelligent Robots: Robots are made intelligent enough to perform the tasks given by a human. They have sensors located inside them to detect physical data from the real world such as light, heat, temperature, movement, sound, bump, and pressure. They have highly efficient processors, multiple sensors, and huge amounts of memory, to exhibit intelligence. They are also capable of learning from their mistakes and can easily adapt to the new environment.   DATA SCIENCE  Data science is a blend of data inference, algorithm development, and technology to solve analytically complex problems which arise in day to day situations. The ultimate goal of Data Science is to use this data in creative ways to generate business value.   

MACHINE LEARNING and DEEP LEARNING 

Machine Learning is mainly based on algorithms and they are a sequence of instructions used to solve a problem. Algorithms are developed by programmers to instruct computers in new tasks and are the building blocks of the advanced digital world which we are seeing today. Computer algorithms can organize a large amount of data into information and services that are based on certain instructions and rules.  Instead of programming the computer every step of the way, this approach offers the computer directions that allow it to learn from data without new instructions at each step by the programmer. This means that computers can be used for new, complicated tasks that were not possible to program manually. Tasks like photo recognition applications for the visually impaired or the task of translating pictures into speech.  The basic process of machine learning is to give the data which is acquired during training to a learning algorithm. The learning algorithm then generates a new set of rules, based on inferences from the data. By using different types of training data, the same learning algorithm can be used to generate different types of models. For e.g. this type of learning algorithm could be used to teach the computer how to translate different languages or predict the stock market.  Deep learning is a part of a broader family of machine learning methods based on artificial neural networks with representation learning. Deep learning architectures such as deep neural networks, deep belief networks, recurrent neural networks, convolutional neural networks, have been applied to fields including computer vision, speech recognition, Natural Language Processing, AR and VR etc. where they have produced results comparable to and in some cases surpassing human expert performance.  How Machines Learn?  Supervised learning: The learning algorithm is given a set of data which is labelled and the desired output. For e.g., pictures of dogs labelled “dog” will help the algorithm identify the rules to classify pictures of dogs.   Unsupervised learning: The data given to the learning algorithm is not labelled, and the algorithm is asked to search for patterns in the input data. For e.g., the recommendation system of an e-commerce website where the learning algorithm discovers similar items often bought together.   Reinforcement learning: The algorithm interacts with a dynamic environment and keeps learning from experience and provides feedback. For e.g., self-driving cars.  The current growth in Artificial Intelligence and machine learning is tied to developments in three important areas   Data availability: We can say that over 3 billion people are online with around 17 billion connected devices or sensors, which generate a large amount of data which when combined with decreasing costs of data storage, can be easily available for use. Machine learning can use this as training data for learning algorithms and hence making new rules to perform increasingly complex tasks.     Computing power: Powerful computers and their ability to connect remote processing power through the Internet and make it possible for machine learning techniques to process these huge amounts of data.   Algorithmic innovation: These new machine learning techniques, specifically in neural networks which is also known as “deep learning” have inspired new services, but are also making investments and research in other parts of the field.  Social and Economic Impact: It is predicted that Artificial Intelligence technologies will bring economic changes which will result in an increase in productivity. This includes the use of machines that will be able to perform new tasks, such as self-driving cars, advanced robots or smart assistants to support people in their daily lives. 

CYBERSECURITY 

Cybersecurity, an evolving information technology security field mainly focuses on the protection of computers and data from unintended and unauthorized users. There is a heavy demand for the cybersecurity analyst jobs in the wings of the army, police, and software companies. In the current era as the information and data is being hacked, the role of the cybersecurity professionals is going to be extremely challenging.  BLOCKCHAIN  Block chain, distributed  or digital ledger mainly for recording the details of financial and non financial transactions. It is a combination of cryptography, programming and networking technologies which makes a revolution in the field of information registration and distribution for making a trustable digital relationship.  NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING  NLP is a combination of three Technologies such as machine learning ,Artificial Intelligence and linguistics to talk to machines, as if they were humans .These Technologies empowers the chatbot Google search engine ,Amazon’s Alexa ,Siri of Apple and  Google translator in the business worlde.It harness the unstructured data, acts as personal digital assistant and helps to make an effective analytical decision.   COMPUTER GRAPHICS  Computer graphics is the production of images on computers which can be used in any medium. Images that are used in the graphic design are often produced on computers, as well as the still and moving images we see in animations. The real life images seen in electronic games and computer simulations would not have been created or supported without the enhanced capabilities of modern day computer graphics.  Computer graphics are also important for scientific visualization, a part of computer graphics that uses images and colours to model complex phenomena such as air currents and electric fields, in which objects are drawn on a computer and analyzed in computer programs. Even the windows-based graphical user interface, which is a common means of interacting with a lot of computer programs, is associated with computer graphics.  UX DESIGN  User experience (UX) design is the process of creating products that provides us with meaningful and relevant experiences to the users. This involves the design of the entire process of acquiring the product and including aspects of branding, design, usability, and function.  User Experience Design is usually associated with terms like User Interface Design and Usability, Usability and User Interface Design are important aspects of UX Design. A UX designer is concerned with the entire process of acquiring and integrating a product which includes aspects of branding, design, usability and function.  UX designers don’t just focus on creating products that are usable; they concentrate on other aspects of the user experience, such as pleasure, efficiency and fun, too.  MOBILE APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT  Mobile application development is the process by which a mobile application is developed for mobile devices.  The difference between a good application and a bad application is usually because of the quality of its user experience (UX). A good UX design is what separates successful apps from unsuccessful ones. Nowadays, mobile users expect a lot from an application such as fast loading time, ease of use and delight during an interaction. If you want your application to be successful, you have to consider UX to be not just a small aspect of design, but an essential part of product strategy. What to work on in Mobile Development?  Minimize Cognitive Load: Cognitive load here refers to the amount of brain power required to use the application. The human brain has a limited amount of processing power, so you should keep in mind to not provide too much information at once, it might overwhelm the user and make them abandon the task. 
  • Decluttering: Clutter is one of the worst enemies of good design. By cluttering your interface, you overload users with a lot of information: Every added button, image and icon makes the screen more complicated, so make sure to keep it simple. Clutter is terrible on desktop, but it is more worse on mobile .It’s essential to get rid of anything in a mobile design that is not necessary because reducing clutter will improve comprehension. 
  • Offload Tasks: We look for anything in the design that requires user effort, and look for other alternatives. For example, in some cases you can reuse previously entered data instead of asking the user to type again, or use already available information. 
  • Familiar Screens: Familiar screens are those screens which the users see in many apps. Screens such as “Getting started,” “What’s new” and “Search results” have become standards for mobile applications. They do not require additional explanation because these features are known to the users. This allows users to use prior experience to interact with the application, with no learning curve. 
  • Anticipate User’s Needs: We look for steps in the user journey where users might need help. 
  • Avoid Jargon: Clear communication should always be a top most priority in any mobile application. Use what you know about the audience you are targeting to determine whether certain words or phrases are appropriate.

SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING 

Scientific Computing is the collection of tools, techniques, and theories which are required to be solved on a computer.  Most of these tools, techniques, and theories were originally developed in Mathematics and many of them come long before the introduction of electronic computers.   This set of mathematical theories and techniques is called Numerical Analysis and constitutes a major part of scientific computing.  Many of the numerical methods that had been developed for the purpose of hand calculation had to be revised and sometimes abandoned. Considerations that were irrelevant or unimportant for hand calculation now became of utmost importance for the efficient and correct use of a large Computer System.  Many of these considerations such as programming languages, operating systems, management of large quantities of data, correctness of programs all were put under the new discipline of Computer Science, on which scientific computing now heavily depends. Mathematics still continues to play a vital role in scientific computing because it provides the language for the mathematical models that are solved and information about the availability of a model and it provides the theoretical foundation for the numerical strategies and, increasingly, many of the tools from computer science.
