Baker Academy – A Brief Profile
Baker Associates & Consultants, the pioneers in Engineering Design & Consultancy established Baker Academy for Science and Engineering in 2010 with an objective of sharing the practical experience of veterans from various walks of engineering with the fresh technology students- the builders of the future of our nation. Baker Academy provides a strong base for the engineers to build up their career by giving them professional training, with significant emphasis on practical applications through hands on sessions, live project exposure and independent exercises on dealing with all disciplines of Engineering.
The program aims to train students in aspects of engineering design as a practical science. Being focused on building professional capacities the courses are centered on real life projects , simulations and hands on practical sessions. Students also have to intern in projects to widen their exposure. Baker Academy cherishes the individual interests and abilities of its students and helps them chart their own academic pathways while keeping their focus on their main program. Baker Academy works as a collaborative of academicians and practitioners. Practitioners adept at well-balanced decision-making bring their experience to classrooms, and academicians impart more thoughtful and critical approaches. Teachers at the academy, see themselves as coaches. Their role is to support individual students in their explorations and in their capacity-building quests. Students trained at our centres can build successful careers in private practice and with other organizations.
Our course syllabii are integrated with aptitude analysis and life skill development. Baker Academy provides a platform for aspirants by providing opportunities and ambience for practical exposure and professionalism. We intend to act as a link between aspiring engineers and the industry. Our aim is to provide practically prudent, competent and professional assets for the Engineering sector.
To be a guiding source in the technological world, and thus be a pivotal player in the quest towards bringing India at the helm forms one of our visions. We believe that India is the future and also we believe that the future depends on the future of our young minds.

Engineers from time immemorial have evinced their capability for great technological feats to transform human lives. It is the years of dedicated work experience in the field of engineering and a passion to share the wealth of experience I have earned over the time lead me to form Baker Academy. Over the years, I have closely observed the competency and potential of our newbie and working engineers modelled out of the Engineering Colleges, as an employee as well as a consultant. Unfortunately, the prevailing situation is shockingly tragic. The Engineering institution galore has been producing an influx of engineers who are rarely found industry ready. The employment deficit crowding over the current generation of engineers is an inevitable consequence of non entities among them. Indeed, the competition in the market is increasing but the standard of engineers is dwindling.
There is no absence of opportunities for Engineers in the job market, but there is not much to do for an inefficient and unskilled engineer and consequentially, working engineers face constructive dismissal. The technical skills required and obtained by an engineer determine their career path. In today’s rapidly changing technologies and economic situations, it has been made essential that an Engineer be judged by his technical expertise and ability to apply them in an efficient manner. There is no way that one with a true sense of nation building could go blind towards this unhappy development, especially when the nation is looking for engineering advancements to face the challenges of development in infrastructure of the nation.
Everyone has the right to improve and Baker Academy shall be a happenstance for fresh engineers to enrich practical skills and develop enterprise in its ambience. The academy has pioneered courses which would train the engineers to plan, design and execute structures independently and shall bridge your industry relation.
The engineers proficient in doing works independently will definitely be well placed. The courses at Baker Academy will pave the way to land you in better jobs in well established firms and let you grow prosperous. I recommend students to opt for at least two courses including life skills and other one based on your interest. Life skills for life time, here at Baker Academy, will resurrect and motivate you to bring creative skills and encourage for innovations. It will enable you to stand potent in current competitive corporate world.
I believe, the induction courses in our academy will change your calculus in the realm of construction field and empower you to be the architect of change in the field of construction world.
I wish you all success for a prosperous career ahead.

This will be the great opportunity for all the civil fresh engineers to start their career...the classes are conducted by experienced faculties. They share their knowledge and teach how to handle a civil work.

It is a really great experience being trained here @BASE. The training sessions give a clear sketch in our mind about various aspects of Structural Engineering. I am sure that the courses offered are of real value to the budding Civil Engineers. Feeling great to be a part of BASE.
The classes are good and explanations are also good. I have achieved sound knowledge in Structural layout and Analysis. The Field visits are good in helping us get Practical knowledge. The syllabus for the course is perfectly structured, simple and understandable.
I personally feel that I have benefitted through the classes I have got from here. The faculty is truly helping and clears any doubt regarding the subjects with ease. Classes are very informative and are taken in a simple and understandable manner.
