What we are for

The Department of Climate Change at the IIT Hyderabad attempts to explore climate change integrating academic knowledge with practical knowledge bringing scientists, engineers, practitioners and students together. The key is to foster an interdisciplinary space of inquiry that incorporates climate sciences, technology and engineering-based design approaches, as well as social and policy research. We, at IITH, plan to be a leading institute in the synergy among these three key areas. This clearly highlights the need for multi-disciplinary courses. We plan to achieve this with a unique curriculum taking the help of IITH's fractal academics programme. The curriculum involves core courses, elective courses, seminar series by the experts of various disciplines, focus group discussions, field visits, and research thesis.
