Sharda University, the only truly global university in India with 27% International students from 55+ countries across the world, is best known for providing quality education and helping the students in ‘holistic development’ that encourages them to learn the theoretical and practical aspects in a better way.
In its attempt towards betterment of the teaching – learning process, School of Architecture and Planning (SAP) organized a one-day study trip to the Indian Meteorological Department, Delhi for the second year students of Bachelor of Architecture (B. Arch.) program. The idea behind conducting this study trip was to provide the students an opportunity to explore more about ‘Climatology Basics’ in the real organizational settings of Meteorological Department.
A batch of second-year students of Sharda University recently visited the Central Hydromet Observatory (CHO) and Environment Monitoring & Research Center (EMRC) to gain practical knowledge on the various techniques used by Indian Meteorological Department for the measurement and documentation of different climatic parameters like solar radiation, sunshine hours, air temperature, humidity, wind speed, and precipitation. They were exposed to the steps involved in the process.
After touring the Central Hydromet Observatory as well as Environment Monitoring & Research Centre, the students had an interaction session with the staff of Meteorological Department and asked several questions related to the Climatology basics. This short field trip gave students an opportunity to learn more within their curriculum and broaden their perspective which is imperative for a fruitful learning experience.
