  • Energy has a significant importance in elevating the lives of people all around the world. Students of Amrita have done field work in an empoverished village of the state of Bihar, and identified Energy as the most problematic problem area over there. Using the most advancing technologies, it was determined that a modernized smokeless Chulha, or smokeless stove, can be designed. It surpasses earlier such models, and can be of very low cost.

  • Amrita is conducting humanitarian oriented research to provide cost-efficient water filtration solutions to the villages in India. One of these projects is a water desalination unit. It filtrates impurities by replicating the natural cycle, where air and natural heat are used for vapourising, dehumidifying and finally collecting water.  Continuing the work carried out previously, students manufactured the unit and started testing it., They also went to the field in flood affected areas of Kerala in August 2018 to understand the actual needs of the people.

  • "The project aligned with my research interest in affordable, sustainable, and responsive housing. This was a real-world, real-time project that helped me develop, especially in regards to field work and data collection. We were in charge of the project, and moving it forward. The professors and mentors were very helpful and responsive when we needed it. It was great to collaborate and learn on a multidisciplinary team! ”
