Be it physical, social, economic or environmental infrastructure, the demand for holistically trained professionals is becoming unprecedented. In response to this growing sectoral demand for domain-ready professionals, Karnataka's prestigious Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU) is offering a comprehensive dual-option PG Programme, through the School of Management for Infrastructure and Development Strategies - India (MINDS), at Bangalore.
