Model Engineering College

Model Engineering College, Thrikkakara is a premier institute of engineering that has carved a niche for itself in the field of technical education in a very short span of time. Since its inception in 1989, under the aegis of the Institute of Human Resource Development for Electronics, IHRDE (now IHRD,Government of Kerala undertaking), the college has made its presence felt in the technical horizon of the state.

The college offers engineering courses in Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering and Electronics & Biomedical Engineering. Unique in its structure, methods and goals, the college is strongly rooted in a philosophy of training and research that emphasizes the intimate relationships between knowledge and its application and seeks to promote the creation of an ideal society.

Situated at Thrikkakara, an idyllic spot in the fringes of Kochi, the location offers an advantage as it is just a stone's throw away from industrial centres including Aluva, the industrial capital of the state and Cochin Special Economic Zone(CSEZ) yet sufficiently far enough from the hustle of Kochi city, providing a congenial atmosphere for diligent academic pursuit.

The college has been selected for financial assistance by TEQIP (Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme), a World Bank Project. As part of the scheme, it is expected to receive around Rs10 crores . An amount of Rs 4.3 crores has already been sanctioned. For more details log on to
