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 laboratory 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 Health & Livelihood, Education & Technology, Environment & Farming, Energy, and Infrastructure & Basic Facilities.

In Civil Engineering Department, the interested students will get an opportunity to work in any of the villages and solve the technical problems in areas like water and waste management, construction techniques, energy and environment etc.  by applying the engineering knowledge they have acquired through their study. The students can identify the problem at the end of second year and start working on it. The evaluation will be in fifth semester and a satisfactory performance earns a 3 credits. Students earning this 3 credits have the option to drop one of the electives in semester VII.
