TERI University, also known as TERI School of Advanced Studies (TERI SAS), was established as a Trust in 1998 with the objective of providing high-quality academic learning programmes. With TERI as its sponsoring society, TERI SAS focused its attention on developing a set of learning programmes that were both in support of, and were supported by research on energy, environment and sustainability undertaken by TERI. It was envisioned that the academic rigour brought by TERI SAS’ faculty members would enhance the quality of TERI’s application focused research, while the high-quality research of TERI would constantly upgrade the curriculum/ academic programmes of TERI SAS and enhance its societal relevance.
In 1999, TERI SAS was granted “Deemed to be University” status by the University Grants Commission.
