The Centre of Excellence in Disaster Mitigation and Management (CoEDMM) is India's first Disaster Mitigation and Management centre. On March 27, 2006, the Centre came into existence to conduct an educational programme, cutting-edge research, and training on disasters, vulnerability, and mitigation. Creating a National Database for the rapid dissemination of information and knowledge is also a core objective of the Centre. The main aim of the educational programme is to conduct multidisciplinary research and impart advanced expertise on technical and managerial skills to the professionals to make them equipped with innovative technologies for effective mitigation and management of disasters for the overall benefit of society.

The Centre aims to achieve excellence in critical areas of education and research at par with international standards. Regional issues, especially Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Floods, Cyclones, Fires, Avalanche, Landslides, Cloudbursts, and their early warnings are other focus areas. The courses offered in the Centre are a two-year post-graduate specialization course in Disaster Mitigation and Management and the doctoral programme focussing on Earthquake, Landslide, Cyclones, Floods, tsunamis, Cyber Crime, Avalanche, Fire, Industrial disaster, CBRN (chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear), and Geomatics Technology. The Centre has 17 joint faculty members and three core faculty members specializing in disaster-related domains. The interdisciplinary nature of the Centre supports various research and consultancy projects through sponsored funding from Govt. of India and other National and International funding agencies.
