At the prime of 17th August 2018, Anant National University bid a bittersweet goodbye to the first batch of its flagship programme, Anant Fellowship, and felicitated students of School of Architecture and School of Planning in the Convocation ceremony.
Highlights of the event included a heartwarming address by Dr. Pramath Raj Sinha, Provost, AnantU, and the keynote address by Ms. Swati Ramanathan, former Co-Convenor of the Urban Planning Group of the Planning Commission’s 12th Five Year Plan, and current member of the Chief Minister’s Advisory Council, Government of Rajasthan.
On the jubilant event, Director of Anant Fellowship, Garima Aggarwal expressed,“This was the first year of an experimental program. And we were nervous about how our vision of imparting the sort of learning that we believe Built Environment practitioners of tomorrow need would play out in terms of actual implementation. It gives us immense pleasure to see how well our students have internalised the qualities of empathy, teamwork, problem-solving, perseverance and leadership. The success of our endeavor is embodied in the achievements demonstrated by our students.”
Having achieved commendable feats in the spheres of community development and environmental upgradation through sustainable interventions during their one-year full-time programme, the graduating students of AnantU called it a day by getting placed at India’s most reputed organisations like the Lodha Group, Piramal Group, Quality Control of India, Common Ground practice, INI Design Studio, HCP Design, Planning & Management, Earth Foundation, Blocher Blocher India, Open Spaces Design Studio and Biome Environmental Solutions among others.
