Learn by doing
Move away from classroom learning as you IMBIBE the local culture and traditional knowledge while you work and learn alongside the local people in Ladakh. We believe in education that enriches both the body and mind.
Students learn not only from academicians and industry experts but also from the local practitioners who are actually facing the challenges we want to tackle for the himalayan region
Integrating traditional wishdom with technology
We develop sustainable models such as natural earth building passive solar houses and other such unique models that are efficient eco-friendly have low carbon footprint and draw from traditional knowledge.
