The Chennai-based MARG Ltd., one of India’s leading Infrastructure companies, has announced that its flagship project, MARG Swarnabhoomi, christened the city of education, research and innovation, is fast emerging a major education cluster.
Swarnabhoomi Academic Institutions (SAI), a MARG education initiative, is aimed to address the global needs towards creating an equitable society by enabling young individuals to bridge the socio-economic divide. Affordable quality education, skills development & employability enhancement, training in identified industries, promoting the valued heritage & culture and vocational skills development are its key focus areas.
SAI has embarked upon education ventures like Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music (SAM), MARG Navajyothi Vidyalaya, MARG Institute of Design and Architecture, Swarnabhoomi (MIDAS), and Virginia Tech – India Campus and Finishing School (EXCEL) in the cultural corridor consisting of Mahabalipuram, Auroville and Kancheepuram, renowned for its architectural inspiration. Besides, a Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Studies that will take a uniquely integrated look at parameters like water, waste management ,energy and green building initiative, is also on the anvil.
Mr. GRK Reddy, Chairman & Managing Director, MARG Group, said: “Our education initiatives are strategically located in the quite, green, pollution-free and pristine eco-system of MARG Swarnabhoomi. Also, the fact that students will be exposed to on-site training at the MARG facilities and project sites, extensive interaction with our international partners & faculty and that meritorious students will be absorbed within the MARG Group is a key differentiating factor. We are building 60 million sq. ft. of development, two airports at Bijapur and Bellary and two ports at Karaikal and Mugaiyur. This will be an excellent learning ground for our students”.
MARG has entered into strategic tie-ups with international majors like PYCSA S.L of Spain, LAGAN Construction of Ireland, and the Los Angeles-headquartered and Fortune 500-listed AECOM and International Infrastructure Consultants (IIC). These international partners will interact on and off site with students and share best practices.
Also, the Provision of Urban Amenities in Rural Areas (PURA) projects being undertaken by MARG in a phased manner will offer huge scope for students towards community development initiatives too. The pilot projects covering 11 village panchayats in Kancheepuram district of Tamil Nadu and eight village panchayats in the Karaikal region of Puducherry, benefitting over 80,000 people in total will help develop rural infrastructure like water supply system, sanitation facilities, village streets, and drainage and watershed projects, apart from placement-linked skill development activities.
Mr. Ganesh Ram, Chief Executive Officer, MARG Swarnabhoomi, says: “Senior Managers at MARG have taken a pledge to dedicate 30,000 man-hours to the group’s education activities annually. This strong reserve of visiting faculty alongwith a research-based learning environment of MARG Swarnabhoomi, is meant to enhance the learning curve and make the students career ready”.
MIDAS aims to provide excellence in architecture and design, focusing on nurturing, inspiring, and equipping the students with the best of knowledge, tools and training. MIDAS will cater to the needs of students from all over India and abroad.
The courses offered in MIDAS are five-year Bachelor Degree Program in Architecture Studies and five-year Bachelor Degree Program in Interior Design Studies. In addition to standard courses in architecture and design, specialised continuing professional development (CPD) short-term courses for working professional architects are also on the anvil.
SAM is India’s first professional music college for contemporary jazz, rock and world music and is on a par with major music colleges around the world .Operational for the past two years, SAM is planning to expand into various fine arts disciplines and become a deemed university dedicated to the field of music and fine arts to cater to over 1,000 students.
MARG Navajyothi Vidyalaya, based on CBSE syllabus, will provide opportunity to the first generation school goers for quality education at an affordable cost. Started in June with about 200 children from 1st to 7th standard, the school will be expanded to offer the entire KG to 12th standard curriculum in the near future.
EXCEL is a finishing school which offers industry-specific course curriculum and provides placement assistance. It aims at generating rural employment opportunities while offering composite and holistic career matrix to aspiring young talents.

Speaking on the occasion GRK Reddy, CMD, MARG Group, said, “It is indeed a pleasure to see a new set of budding architects as the next batch at MIDAS. While the good work done by the students of the first year has been noteworthy and they have carves a niche for themselves, it is up to the new batch to keep up the standards of their seniors. With infrastructure and real estate being a critical element of our economic development, the demand for good architects will only increase. MIDAS has come into existence for providing quality education and exposure so that students have a great chance to fill the need supply gap and become professionals to reckon with in the architecture industry.

MIDAS organized this programme for the new batch of students to acclimatize them to the course curriculum as also to introduce the 2012 batch to the faculty.

Though we have a long way to go, the recognition we have got in the first year is on par with any other leading architecture institutions in the Country. With leading international and national experts visiting our institution to share their practical knowledge with the students and our excellent industry oriented curriculum will ensure that the thirst of architectural knowledge by every individual student will be fulfilled with utmost care. With just a year of campus exposure at MIDAS, a best in class architecture exhibition in the city by 2011 batch students is a recent highlight that I am particularly proud of. I’m sure the new batch will work hand in hand with the faculty and their seniors to become seasoned professionals and architects. I wish them the very best.

With lot of real estate and infrastructure projects undertaken by the MARG Group itself, the students are given an opportunity to work with the professionals on the field to gain the practical experience and I am sure this “live lab learning” experience at MIDAS will give them cutting edge competency with rich dividends when they get a chance to showcase their prowess in the field of architecture.
