Amrita Live-in-Labs® is a multidisciplinary experiential learning program that facilitates the research, development, and deployment of sustainable solutions for current challenges faced by rural communities in India. The program is designed to engage participants in a mutual learning and sharing experience by breaking classroom and lab barriers to implement theoretical knowledge to address real world problems. The program allows participants to study, observe, and interact with rural populations while living in rural communities to gain a better understanding of challenges in the areas of Agriculture & Risk Management, Education & Gender Equality, Energy & Environment, Livelihood & Skill Development , Water & Sanitation, Health & Hygiene and Waste Management & Infrastructure.
The Amrita Internship Program is a great way for international students and graduates to augment their studies and research while living and working in India. The program builds on one’s previous academic and professional experience, expands and deepens existing knowledge of a particular field, and provides an opportunity to collaborate with one of India’s premiere teaching and research institutions.
