At AnantU, we are partial to studying, reporting, analyzing and investigating the Built Environment as dynamic entities that need our intervention to make them better, safer and, most importantly, sustainable.

Our Master’s course is designed, therefore, to bring the real world into the classroom, introduce students to Built Environment assets that impact us every day, as individuals, as members of our communities, neighbourhoods, cities and nations, and, finally and inevitably, protectors of Planet Earth.

Students can expect an intense and rigorous exposure to writing and reporting, which would include collaborating with classmates to publish a weekly lab journal called The Grid.

Each semester will be planned along BE elements as they impact “Me and My Family”, “My Community” and “My World”.

The first semester focuses on writing about an issue that is uppermost on everyone’s list of priorities: pollution of air, water and land. The challenge, as we see it, is in cutting through the jargon, the technical details and the lofty rhetoric around it to convey the urgency of challenge in plain, simple and easily understandable language.

In the second semester, students examine the impact of infrastructures, such as transportation, community and health.

In the third semester, students will examine challenges posed by Built Environment to humanity at large. Are we killing our rivers? Are our farming methods poisoning the atmosphere? How do we regain lost and depleted forests?

 

In the fourth, and final, semester, students will be expected to work on a capstone project. It will be their most exhaustive work of the course on a subject of their choice, selected, considered and executed under close supervision and guidance of a member of the faculty.
