At CTESCOA we believe in engaging ourselves with the communities and study the city we live in through studying Social, Cultural, Economic and Envionmental characteristics. For this we have introduced Discovery of Mumbai as a part of College Project, where the students visit a part of Mumbai and study in detail.

Periodically, Guest lectures are organised, where practitioners from various fields of culture and technology are invited by the college to present their work and discuss with students.

Study trips are organised every year for Years 1-4. The study undertaken is then integrated into the design projects.
