‘Quality Education with Moral and Ethics for Social Progression’

One of the main objectives of the institution is the enlightenment of the whole society. The institution’s mission is to grow into a world-class, pace-setting institute with a unique identity and character that meets the aspirations of society. Every curricular and co-curricular activity is carried out in a way that fulfills the institution’s vision and mission. The institution provides a state of the art environment and infrastructure for teaching. Faculty and students are urged to participate in research, and students receive certain moral and ethical principles that will help them succeed in life.  The SJCET campus is a green campus with a lot of eco-friendly initiatives. From its inception, the management of the institution has followed a nature-friendly approach. The campus is more than 46 acres, and the major area of the campus is filled with well-maintained greenery with thousands of plants and trees. Hundreds of birds from 36 different species have been found on campus. Among them, some are really rare to find around us. The institution makes numerous efforts to uphold the green philosophy.  This has led to the development of green morals and ethics towards the environment among the staff and students.

Good citizens should responsibly use water and other natural resources.  Students of SJCET are sensitized for optimal use of resources from the day they commence living on campus. The institution teaches them not only engineering but also the lessons of life. Students can observe various water recycling plants and water conservation facilities on campus. Choondacherry by nature is a village with many virtues. A lot of rainfall takes place in this village. There are three main rainwater harvesting tanks in the campus. Besides, there are well-recharging facilities developed in the campus. To maintain harmony with nature, the institute effectively balances the utilization of natural resources and the recycling of the resources. The Meteorological Centre, located on campus, can measure various metrics and store them for later use. SJCET is also an ISO 14001:2015-certified institution, which adheres to the specifications for an environmental management system that an institution may utilise to improve its environmental performance.

Waste management:

All electronic equipments used on the campus are regularly maintained and repaired to ensure the minimum amount of e-waste. E-waste is being disposed of as per the norms of the Pollution Control Board. In order to reduce plastic usage, most of the infrastructural elements are made of wood, glass, and other degradable materials. The use of plastic inside the campus is strictly restricted. Reusing single-sided papers will significantly reduce the amount of paper used. The campus consists of 3 biogas plants situated in hostels at SJCET. It can greatly contribute to reducing greenhouse gases, as it has the possibility of reducing the need to use fossil fuels. Hostel wastewater is collected on campus and recycled for use in farming and gardening.

Energy Conservation:

The institution has taken initiatives for energy conservation. SJCET owns three solar power plants on campus that will contribute to most of the energy requirements. A total of 210 kWp solar power plant generated 258532 units of electricity in 2022. The installation of another solar plant is in the pipeline. As per KSEBL regulations, we can add another 50 kWp solar power plant to the existing system.

Quality Initiatives:

  1. Today’s academic institutions are known for producing thousands of research papers, journal articles, and patents in addition to supporting academic activities. APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University’s SJCET research centre offers facilities for research in five distinct fields. In this institution, 15 professors are research supervisors, and more than 51 professors are engaged in their own research. There are about 35 faculty with Ph.D.s in various fields.
  2. A little over 57 % of teaching faculty are actively involved in research activities. It was emphasised to faculty and students that research participation is an important aspect of the institution’s quality mission. Students take an active role in publishing the results of their research projects in reputable publications and take part in competitions related to research and project/design exhibitions.
  3. By offering a variety of support services to a wide range of beneficiaries, St. Joseph’s Centre for Industrial Consultancy is highly active in a number of sectors, including Civil Engineering, Computer Science, and Mechanical Engineering.
  4. Collaboration between industry and academics fosters technological advancement and innovation. Industry collaborations are essential for developing research and a qualified workforce. The majority of the institution’s departments signed MoUs with companies that work in their respective fields.
  5. For free continual digital learning on a diverse range of topics, we have platforms like Infosys Springboard and UiPath. An Infosys Springboard student can greatly benefit from the educational initiatives and Infosys’ partnerships with other reputable industry resource providers like Coursera, Harvard Publications, and more. Students can use UiPath Academy’s platform to get certified in a wide range of technologies.
  6. Patents are a necessary component of a rapidly expanding academic institution. Patents benefit society because they encourage creativity and aid in the creation of new goods. They protect intellectual property as well. The faculty and students at SJCET are encouraged to conduct research and submit patent applications. We currently own three patents and have eleven more filed.
  7. The SJCET Startup Bootcamp- IEDC (Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre) is a part of the Kerala Startup Mission initiative to develop a startup culture amongst students. Students have the chance to experiment and innovate at the IEDCs. The institution’s IEDC received the Best Performing IEDC award in 2017 and 2019. SJCET Bootcamp is supported by the Department of Industries and Commerce and the institution’s Innovation Council, Ministry of HRD. There are twelve companies founded and incubated in the SJCET Startup Bootcamp.
  8. The management is dedicated to creating a world-class, innovative institute of engineering and technology that produces graduates with strong moral and ethical principles as well as academic and research aptitudes.
