Rajagiri School of Engineering & Technology (Autonomous) Code: RET

Rajagiri School of Engineering & Technology (RSET) - Autonomous, Rajagiri Valley, Kochi, is a premier educational institution offering excellence in engineering education and research. The University Grants Commission has granted autonomous status to RSET from 2020 onwards. The parent university of RSET (Autonomous) is A. P. J. Abdul Kalam Technological University, Trivandrum, Kerala. RSET is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi.

Accredited with 'A grade' by NAAC in the second cycle, Seven of the nine undergraduate programmes offered are NBA accredited. RSET is listed in the National Institutional Ranking Framework 2020 & 2022 by the Ministry of Education, Government of India. The institution also offers postgraduate programmes in engineering, and research programmes (Ph.D.) in science and engineering.

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 Carmelites of Mary Immaculate is 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.
