Welcome to the platform of the Academic section of Defence Institute of Advanced Technology, Pune. It is now the home to a vibrant academic community of students, scholars, professional staff, and worldly exposed faculty members. Our academic orientation spans the human, and we address questions at the interface of society and Defence from local to global scales. In both teaching and research, we work within and across subject and disciplinary groupings. We seek to develop inter-and transdisciplinary perspectives from strong disciplinary foundations to shape questions and solutions relevant to communities, stakeholders, policymakers, academics, and tri-services.
