The interdisciplinary programme (IDP) in Climate Studies has over 30 faculty participants drawn from 12 departments, across IIT Bombay, with expertise in climate science, technology assessment and policy. A substantial seed grant was awarded by the Department of Science and Technology, to establish a Centre for Excellence in Climate Studies (2012-2016).
The doctoral curriculum in the IDP in Climate Studies includes core courses in two broad tracks of climate science and climate policy, supplemented by elective courses on a broad range of theoretical and practical topics.
Teaching assistantships are available to doctoral students. Visiting fellowships are available to Indian and international experts in the field to give lecture series on special topics and to engage in collaborative work.
