SUNY Oneonta Students Travel to India to Study Sustainable Development

Twelve SUNY Oneonta students from a variety of majors traveled to India in the beginning of January for a 10-day, faculty-led study abroad course called "Sustainable Development in India."

The main focus of the trip was the sustainable use and production of energy in what will soon be the world's most populous country. Students were accompanied by faculty instructors Dr. Sunil Labroo (Physics and Astronomy) and Dr. James Mills (Geography and Environmental Sustainability).

Highlights of the trip included a visit to a hydroelectric power station in the Himalayas, tours of the planned city of Chandigargh, and interacting with faculty and students at Panjab University. Students also visited one of the Ninash Foundation schools started by professor emeritus Dr. Ashok Malhotra. Class visits also included a day at the Taj Mahal and Red Fort in Agra and the Astronomical Observatory and Amber Fort in Jaipur.
