Cochin University of Science & Technology (CUSAT) is a government owned autonomous university in Kochi (Cochin), Kerala, India. Founded in 1971, the university consists of three campuses, two in Kochi and one in Kuttanad, Alappuzha, about 66 km inland. Nearly 2,000 students engage yearly in various areas of undergraduate and postgraduate study. The university awards degrees in various fields of engineering and allied subjects at the undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral Level.

The institute is poised to become Indian Institute of Engineering, Science and Technology, Kochi (IIEST Kochi), which will bring CUSAT into an elite group of institutes of national importance.

Originally known as University of Cochin, the University came into being in 1971 through an Act of the Legislature of Government of Kerala that was the result of a concerted campaign for postgraduate education in the State of Kerala. Reorganization of the university into Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) in February 1986 saw the fulfillment of the aspirations of the pioneers who spearheaded the movement for establishment of a science & technology university in the state. The process of reorientation resulted in redefining the objectives as the promotion of undergraduate and postgraduate studies and advanced research in applied science, technology, industry, commerce, management and social sciences.
Admissions are based on an All India Entrance Examination known as Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted by the University which includes different papers for admissions to various undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Various Departmental Admission Tests (DAT) are also conducted for some postgraduate Courses.

The mission of the university is to make distinctive and eloquent contributions to the cause of higher education in science and technology. CUSAT has pledged to strive to offer teaching of the highest quality and to engage in research and scholarship that will contribute to the advancement of knowledge.

The motto of the university is 'Tejasvinavadhithamastu', which conveys, 'May learning illumine us both, the teacher and the taught'.
