Dr Anunaya Chaubey, Provost, Anant National University, said, “AnantU has emerged as a shining example in design education by rethinking the pedagogy and the curriculum. We have built an inclusive educational space by bringing together students, faculty and the community in the act of learning and designing solutions for our problems. We teach our students to integrate their roots, traditions, concern for the community and nature with sustainable contemporary technologies and practices and offer contextual solutions.”
“In the past two decades, we witnessed two meta-forces that permanently reshaped our societies – mobile phones and the internet. Today, we are on the verge of a third. Climate adaption and resilience will be our biggest challenges in the next 20 years. Old rules of consumption-driven design are no longer relevant. We need to redesign everything, and this is the most exciting opportunity. Anant National University aims at training students for such challenges and makes them future-ready”, said Bhaskar Bhatt, Head of Master of Design (Integrated Product Design) and Product Design programme at AnantU.
