Mission Statement

To prepare and empower Solutionaries who design, build and implement equitable and sustainable solutions for India and the world.

International Role

AnantU has strong partnerships with leading institutes and universities around the world.

These top institutions work with AnantU to provide meaningful faculty and student exchange opportunities, and partner in joint research and curriculum innovation.

University of Pennsylvania (UPenn): 

The University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) is one of the top private Ivy League research universities in the United States of America. AnantU, in collaboration with UPenn, is looking to offer a holistic approach to design, which aligns with UPenn’s philosophy of translating knowledge into social-minded action. Together, in the academic year 2018-2019, they have launched a course in Master of Design – Integrated Product Design (MDes – IPD) which combines the disciplines of engineering, management, and design.

University of Miami: 

The University of Miami, a private research university established in 1925, is a vibrant and diverse academic community focused on teaching and learning, and the discovery of new knowledge. The university is home to 12 colleges/schools and AnantU is collaborating with the School of Architecture (USA) to offer new-age courses from leading international faculty at its campus.

National Role

The Design Village:
The Design Village was born out of responsibility towards design, towards society, towards India and the world, at large. Its mission is to be a global hub for design education and to promote and support development through design. TDV’s curriculum was designed in collaboration with professors from TU Delft, the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. Through a comprehensive design education, students are inspired to think about the future and molded to connect design with impact. TDV organizes meaningful faculty and student exchanges with international centers of design. TDV and AnantU are knowledge partners for all academic activities.
