RSET (Autonomous) is an endeavour of the Sacred Heart Province of the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) – the first-ever indigenous religious congregation for men in the Syrian Catholic tradition of Christianity in India. The CMI congregation, canonically established in 1855, played a major role in revolutionizing the education scene in Kerala in the late 19th century. Heirs to the profound vision of St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara, one of the founding fathers of the congregation, the CMIs’ have zealously worked towards providing value-based quality education to society at large, irrespective of religious differences, down the centuries. Today, the congregation has more than 400 educational institutions, from schools to professional colleges under its umbrella.

The Rajagiri Valley campus is a perfect blend of the urban and the rural: while the verdant and serene backdrop of the self-contained campus provides the ideal atmosphere for stimulating the creativity and intellectual pursuits of the academia, the close proximity to the industrial belt of Kerala, the Infopark, and the proposed Smart City helps in providing the students with exposure to the practical aspects of their profession. This ensures a smooth transition from the institution to the industry for our graduates.
