The Centre for Urban Science & Engineering (CUSE) at IIT Bombay, established in October 2012, is an interdisciplinary centre for research, teaching, and skilled manpower development with the primary mandate of improving the quality of urban life.
The research activities of the Centre focus on understanding urban issues and work towards new products and solutions related to housing, transport, water management, energy efficiency, urban informatics, health, governance, urban poverty, and citizen science while mitigating the effects of natural disasters and climate change.
The Centre combines science and technology with sustainable, equitable, and human-friendly design to deliver innovative and holistic services to improve the lives of the rapidly urbanizing population in the developing world.
Apart from its core faculty, the Centre has over 30 associated faculty members from various disciplines within IIT Bombay including Civil Engineering, Computer Science Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Energy science & Engineering, Environmental Science & Engineering, Humanities, Industrial Design, Operations Research and School of Management. Hence, the Centre coalesces multiple research and educational urban-related activities. The Centre offers a M.Tech in Urban Systems apart from its doctoral programme.
