Rajagiri School of Engineering & Technology (RSET), Kakkanad, Kochi, is a premier educational institution offering excellence in engineering education and research. RSET is affiliated to the Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, Kerala, and approved by the All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi.
Managed by the Sacred Heart Province of the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) congregation, RSET is a part of the Rajagiri Vidyapeetham (seat of knowledge), a dream eternal, being unfolded in time through the relentless CMI quest for excellence in the pursuit of Wisdom. The dream is a wide network of institutions and centers providing quality education from pre-primary to doctoral programmes of specializations and super-specializations, and seeking alternatives to the conventional mainstream efforts. As an institution which bears the traditional Rajagiri hallmark of academic brilliance and social commitment, RSET has successfully carved a niche for itself in the sphere of engineering education in the state within a very short span of its existence.
The unswerving trust of the parents, the high caliber of teaching and research, the brilliant academic performance of the students, the unparalleled placement record, and the good will of the industry, make RSET a name to be reckoned with amongst the new-generation engineering colleges. The institution has consistently found a position in the lists of best engineering colleges within the state and the country.
RSET provides its students with the right balance of intellectual, psychological, moral, and spiritual growth, and ensure that its graduates not only have an advanced engineering education and practical experience, but are also highly attuned to social needs and demands, cultural mores and traditional values. The institution focuses on engendering in its students a high level of social, professional and humanitarian commitment, and towards building up a society of ethical work and enterprise, and high end research contributing to national and global growth and welfare. The thrust is to mould the minds of the students to respond imaginatively and ingeniously to the challenges posed by globalization, evolving technology, and changing economic trends. RSET seeks to create an academic community united in its spirit of inquiry, love of knowledge, and passion for truth, confidence in reason and social responsibility. The focus is on promoting academic excellence and personal growth, developing an ethical fabric for the new millennium, and ensuring its graduates are global citizens of the highest order with concern, responsibility and commitment beyond boundaries.
