SCMS group that has grown from a single institution under the Prathap Foundation for Education & Training to a group of ten distinct institutions in various disciplines has proved true the vision of its founder Chairman, Dr. G P C Nayar.
Established in 2001 SCMS School of Engineering & Technology (SSET) is a new generation engineering college set up under the self financing scheme. SSET is conceived as a hi-tech state of the art college offering graduate and post graduate programmes in various streams of engineering and technology. Even though the College was established only in 2001 the SSET has the rare distinction of setting up most modern infrastructure facilities within a short span at its sprawling 27-acre campus at Vidya Nagar, Karukutty, Ernakulam District, Kerala.
The SSET draws inspiration and expertise from School of Communication & Management Studies (SCMS) – the internationally reputed business school of the group. This ISO 9001 quality certified business school is highly rated by India’s leading business journals and is ranked as one among the top 25 best business schools in the country. The SCMS is the only AICTE accredited business school in the state of Kerala. SCMS has also received, in recognition of its performance, substantial grants from the AICTE, Government of India. It is the same level of high standards in quality education that we propose to establish at SCMS School of Engineering & Technology.
SSET has an intake capacity of 60 students in each branch. Mechanical Engineering branch has two batches with 120 seats. With a total sanctioned intake capacity of 420 students in six branches SSET is the second largest engineering college set up under the self financing scheme in Kerala.
