Greeting from the Centre for Urban Science and Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay. Being an urban scientist, my quest for researching and analyzing the dynamics of urbanization has taken me to the Urban Transportation Research Unit, the Department of Urban Engineering (DUE), The University of Tokyo. To achieve excellence, one has to chase dreams beyond limits and for that, an encouraging atmosphere is of paramount importance. DUE have always supported students striving for excellence and innovation, by providing a conducive research and academic environment. Urban engineering education, just like urban problems, should be multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural and multi-faceted. Best wishes to all aspirants and young researchers!
