Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why the Aavishkaara School?

Situation demands. All IITs put together graduate barely 500–600 Civil Engineers every year and it is estimated that approximately 10,000 Civil Engineers are created in India every year. Civil Engineers other than those hailing from institutions such as IITs lack the professional skills to cope with the growing industrial needs, not only in construction matters but also in project planning, quantity surveying, project documentation such as tender processes, and contract documents, etc. We seek to provide training aimed at the improvement of these skills.

2. What is the right place of duty for a qualified Civil Engineer?

As per a 2016 report by the job skills credentialing establishment Aspire Minds, more than 82 percent of engineering graduates in India are not employable. Most of them are forced to accept jobs in non-engineering fields or remain unemployed. From our own survey, we found that just over 30% of the graduated engineers are interested in pursuing Civil Engineering related careers or studies for their future. We seek to mould you into professionals by providing an environment for applying the knowledge that you have acquired throughout your academic journey. Through us, you can master the accurate way of executing a project effectively and efficiently. We aim to provide you the right direction towards career-oriented goals that are at par with your engineering counterparts.

3. How do you intend to create better Civil Engineers?

Civil Engineering refers to the design and fabrication of structures for improving the way we live and work and for enabling rapid, safe, and high-volume transportation. Examples include building dams, roads, railways, bridges, canals, skyscrapers, and factories. It is the parent of all engineering. Modern Civil Engineering often focuses on aesthetic considerations and environmental impacts. We train you to achieve unique goals and objectives within the given constraints using project management tools such as work breakdown structures and resource allocation.

4. How is AS APT different from other institutes?

Apart from the passion and innovation we seek to bring to academics, we believe the following makes us stand out from other colleges and institutions:-

  • Specialist veteran faculties (guides) with a minimum of 25–30 years of on-field experience to steer you towards a career as future creators.
  • Smart air-conditioned classrooms
  • Onsite training at live projects such as the construction of metro, roads, buildings, bridges, culverts, dams, etc.
  • Assistance in placements in renowned construction companies in India and abroad.
  • Psychological, motivational, mind development, mind mastery, and meditation classes for candidates
  • Industry-oriented and internationally updated syllabus
  • STED Council Authorised Training Centre

5. What is your aim?

A square peg in the square hole and a round peg in the round hole (Ensuring the appointment of the right person for the right job).

Employer Perspective: Several construction companies in India and abroad hire Civil Engineers according to their requirements, both on-site and off-site. However, such companies face staffing issues with employees not being equipped with the appropriate knowledge regarding the job specifications and its requirements. Furthermore, due to economic and time constraints, the company allows the available unequipped resource to join and continue, thereby compromising the profile requirements. They continue searching for the apt candidate suitable for their profile requirements and consistently invest in their training and upliftment. The engineer working in the wrong profile ends up suffering from immense stress and work pressure, which ultimately disturbs the entire hierarchy of the company and automatically decreases the overall organisational productivity.

Employee Perspective: Civil Engineers available in the market currently are those who end up doing a job that they may not be aptly suited for or fully interested in. Engineers with such shortcomings in their work profiles end up working with frustration, immense stress, and work pressure that eventually disturbs the job environment and also the desire to work with zeal and enthusiasm. A qualified person will always enjoy doing work that they are interested in and which, in turn, increases the productivity of the employee as well as the organisation.

AS APT aims to promote and allot the right place for the right engineer by providing them extensive training as per their aptitude and interests, which will be beneficial to both the employee and the employer. As our acronym suggests, we intend to research a candidate’s aptitude, train and place them in a position that we find AS APT (as most suitable) for their future.

6. What does your LOGO mean?

Our LOGO contains our acronym AS APT and our motto. The silhouette wearing a necktie denotes a graduate emerging from his academics and rising to the sky and shining like a star. The colour blue indicates the academic aspect of our institute and the orange colour indicates a career-oriented future leader and a prospering professional. Our motto “Creating the Creators” is a further testament to our aim to create efficient professionals
