Warm Greetings to all!.
At the beginning of the academic year 2019-20, let me extend my best wishes to all the staff and students!
Our institution has now crossed the adolescent stage in its lifetime and is entering into a more mature age. Coinciding with this, we are preparing for NBA Accreditation this year, which has become madatory. In this endeavour, the whole hearted cooperation of all stake holders is required.
Our performance in the University examination results announced is slightly lower than the recent past record. Placements are more or less steady. But the real achievements at this juncture are on the IPR domain: Dr AR Jayan, HoD ECE has secured a US patent for his work at IIT Bombay. Vishnu Murukan, 2018 ME has filed for an Indian patent, and is being processed. Two more patents are likely to be filed this year through the TBI. Sruthi K, S8 ECE has made us proud by securing first rank in the CUSAT PG entrance (Photonics) 2019.
On the infrastructure front, the new Boys Hostel and an integrated rural sports complex have been inaugurated. The second Ladies Hostel has been sanctioned under KIIFB. Two more hostels are also likely to come up. The work on the construction of EEE block and Staff hostel will commence soon. A Rain Water Harvesting system also will come up this year. A master plan to upgrade the institution to a Center of Excellence has been submitted for the Government's approval.
We need to diligently pursue our academic goals to sustain the good initiatives made. Research-oriented academic culture has to be strengthened along with nurturing the startup ecosystem, which alone is the way forward, to reestablish the society's trust on the academic community.
Wish you all the very best!
