In our journey to contribute to nation building through education, an important focus area is the fast growing real estate and construction sector in India, making demands for technically qualified professionals in related fields. In pursuit of the highest quality standards, Amity takes pride in working together with RICS (the world’s leading professional body for land, property and construction) in setting up the RICS School of Built Environment, as part of the Amity University.
