About the Programme

  • Programme Overview
  • Semester 1 and 2
  • Semester 3 and 4
  • Semester 5 and 6
  • Semester 7 and 8

The 4-year undergraduate engineering degree is a super-specialisation in climate technologies.

Students will learn to build technology solutions for mitigating or adapting to climate change, use specialised softwares for simulating climate impact and be part of live industry climate projects at the Climate Lab since day one of joining. They will have the chance to specialise in using climate technologies for business or policy, as well as a deeper specialisation in climate technology itself. The final semester is a mandatory industry immersion where students are placed within the USD 1 trillion climate industry co-guided by industry and an academic guide.

The curriculum is designed such that every semester 1 – 6 offers an incremental step across 8 climate technology streams as well as applied research in the Climate Lab. The final 2 semesters offer the opportunity to students to take courses they earlier might have not been able to pass or take, and focus on specialisation and then full industry immersion.

Students will be part of Foundation Year courses at Anant that introduce them to climate change and technical drawing. They will gain expertise in climate engineering tools and introduced to key concepts such as earth and space system evolution, biogeochemical cycles, basics of geo-engineering, climate finance asset management, climate and energy, amounting to course work of 20 credits.

4 credits are attributed to applied research projects in the Climate Lab.

Students will learn to apply the tools they have gained expertise in the previous semester. They will also gain understanding of meteorology and atmospheric sciences, pollution aquatic systems, solar-terrestrial relations, financial products origination, environmental policies. They will be introduced to behaviour sciences and will learn to leverage design thinking for innovative solutions in climate action.

While the aforementioned course work will amount to 20 credits, 4 credits continue to be attributed to applied research projects in the Climate Lab.

Equipped with tools and having learnt to apply them to climate solutions, students will now focus on creating technology solutions for climate change through courses amounting to 20 credits. They will learn how to make climate predictions, do space weather modelling, create and scale up clean energy technologies. They will be encouraged to understand the context of developing economies and create technology solutions especially adapted to these regions.

Continuing with the emphasis on industry experience, 4 credits are attributed to applied research projects in the Climate Lab during semester 5 and 6 as well.

In Semester 7, students will pursue 320 hours of specialisation training in any of the three: climate in business, climate law and policy, climate technologies.

In semester 8, every student will be placed on industry projects. They will work on live climate technology projects within external organisations, co-guided by an academic and industry partner. This will make for a smooth transition of the student from university to the surge of jobs within the $1 trillion climate industry.
