The ground to set up RICS School of Built Environment, Amity University was laid in 2011. The idea was perceived when an RICS research demonstrated that nearly 80% shortage of skilled professionals in the Indian built environment sector was curbing its growth. Globally, RICS accredits specialized programs in built environment sector as a basis of adherence to quality benchmarks in education. Graduates passing out of such programs are found to be industry ready and are eligible to further qualify for the chartered qualification of RICS, which is a mark of professionalism and global competencies in the world of Built Environment.
In India, education in built environment sector was not aligned with the industry's needs wherein, civil engineers, architects and planners did not have the requisite skillsets and had to work towards acquiring them while on the job. To help the sector grow and keep up the pace with India's growth requirement, the need for industry ready professionals was identified.
Being a global professional body acting in public interest, the industry entrusted RICS with the task to bridge this talent gap. As a result, RICS joined hands with India’s leading research and innovation driven university – Amity University, to establish the RICS School of Built Environment (RICS SBE), Amity University in 2013.
