Develop world-class leaders to usher in
College of Engineering, Trivandrum, India, popularly known as CET , has come a long way since its inception in 1939 by the Maharaja, the ruler of Travancore State. With a current strength of more than 4000 students, highly qualified engineering faculty, advanced laboratories, workshops and research centres, CET has become a sought after technical institution in the country for engineering studies.
Its library with linkages to international knowledge resource centres acts as the conduit for knowledge sharing. The technological association fostered by CET with national and multi-national industries and business houses well supported by a group of highly placed alumni, provides a growth oriented environment for the students to excel. CET offers a rich portfolio of undergraduates, postgraduates and doctoral programmes in core as well as emerging fields of engineering.
Realizing the fact that the continuously changing business landscape requires young leaders having a thorough understanding of the developing economies with a global perspective, CET started its post graduate course in management as a part-time MBA in 1985. With the wide acceptance of the high calibre CET MBAs by the business community, a full time MBA programme was launched in 2000, as a well-timed initiative of Government of Kerala.
The MBA programme is structured drawing on the inherent strengths of CET as a higher centre of learning enriched with contents encouraging value based growth, industry academia interactions and innovative learning practices.
True to its reputation in engineering education, the Department of Business Administration of CET, now renamed as CET School of Management (CET-SOM) , has also succeeded in carving out its niche among the B-Schools in the country. This Department of CET is accredited by the National Board of Accreditation. CET-SOM is an approved research centre of University of Kerala, in Management Studies. The School organizes training programmes for the academia and the industry on a regular basis. The rich experience of the faculty members enables CET-SOM to take up consultancy works as well.
CET School of Management [CETSoM] is currently affiliated to the Kerala Technological University.
