IRUSE-Cork manages all research projects of the Chair IT in AEC. It is based at UCC's Environmental Research Institute (ERI) and led by Professor Karsten Menzel.

IRUSE aims to research and develop integrated knowledge and information frameworks for sustainable engineering design. IRUSE focuses on the building life cycle of both green field and refurbishment projects. IRUSE was established as an inter-institutional research group with a sister institute at the Dept. of Civil Engineering, NUIG (Lead Dr. Marcus Keane).
