New Delhi, Feb 19 (UNI) Credai NCR has entered into a strategic tie-up with Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIU) to offer professional courses and research opportunities to students interested in taking up a career in the booming real estate sector.
''We have signed an MoU where both the parties will identify areas of common interest by mutual consent for studies and research and disseminate knowledge jointly through teaching, research programmes and consultancy works,'' Credai NCR President Pradeep Jain told reporters.
They will also organise training and research programmes, seminars, conferences, workshops on issues related to real estate and other identified areas of common interest, he added.
Mr Jain said they will also set up a Centre for Research in Real Estate and Infrastructure Development (CRREID), which will offer professional courses and research opportunities to students.
''But it is too early to give a timeframe to the project,'' Mr Jain said.
Credai, the Delhi-NCR chapter of Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India, will make special efforts to make the course content relevant by ensuring mandatory internships and training in the industry.
''The students pursuing courses at the CRREID will have a chance to work on real-life infrastructure and real estate development projects to get hands-on experience of the intricacies involved,'' said Mr Jain.
GGSIU is already running a MBA course in real estate through University School of Management Studies.
GGSIU and Credai NCR will also allow access to each others' library resources; exchange publications, newsletters and journals and assist each other in publication of any reports relating to real estate.
