Regional Office Kozhikode

The KSCSTE-NATPAC Regional Centre in Kozhikode, which has been active since 1990, plays a crucial role in addressing transportation engineering challenges in the region and fostering high-end research to meet current and future demands. Situated on the campus of the KSCSTE - Centre for Water Resources Development and Management (CWRDM) in Kunnamangalam, Kozhikode, this center serves as a hub for scientific, sustainable, and innovative solutions in the field of transportation. The regional centre is instrumental in shaping transportation infrastructure and planning for local government systems in these areas.

This center actively organizes road safety awareness programs and various training initiatives, emphasizing the importance of safe and efficient transportation systems. It provides valuable opportunities for students to engage in real-world projects and internships related to transportation engineering, enabling them to gain practical experience and contribute to the field's development.
