CWAS maintains close linkages to the academic body at CEPT and aims to develop and test new/innovative approaches and translate to CEPT’s academic programmes.
CWAS engages post-graduate students in ongoing activities, providing guidance and funding for internships, thesis and research projects, as an initiative to support student research and writing aligned with practical experience in the water and sanitation sector.
The faculty and CWAS team also contribute actively to academic studio exercises conducted by the Infrastructure Planning Programme at CEPT University. The aim of these studios is to develop amongst students, an understanding of basic concepts of institutional, technical, financial and stakeholder analysis for citywide water and sanitation service delivery while exploring emerging approaches such as climate resilient cities, water sensitive urban design and integrated urban water management.
Additionally, CWAS data and research are all accessible in the public domain and have been used by students across various exercises.
