Rajagiri School of Engineering & Technology     ( Code:RET )

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 A.P. J. Abdul Kalam Technological University, Trivandrum, Kerala from the 2015 admissions onwards, and had been affiliated to the Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, Kerala from 2001 to 2014. 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.


To evolve into a premier technological and research institution, moulding eminent professionals with creative minds, innovative ideas and sound practical skill, and to shape a future where technology works for the enrichment of mankind.


To impart state-of-the-art knowledge to individuals in various technological disciplines and to inculcate in them a high degree of social consciousness and human values, thereby enabling them to face the challenges of life with courage and conviction.


The institution has the broad objective of being an active agent of change by responding to the needs and challenges of the times. This is achieved basically through the process of education, training and research.
