To provide high quality excellent education in the arena of technical and professional education and to impart knowledge in a structured fashion to the student community, late Shri.P.K.Das established the Nehru College of Education and Charitable Trust in the year 1968. Being a man of great vision, commitment, perseverance, dedication and devotion he pioneered revolutionary and innovative thoughts to revamp technical and professional education in the private sector. He was committed to the cause of the poor and social welfare and undertook various initiatives such as donating wheel-chairs, tailoring machines, and tricycles to the physically challenged, providing free education and medical treatment to the backward class, and donating homes for the homeless.
The trust also has constituted over a thousand scholarships and awards for the needy children from various orphanages and schools in and around Coimbatore. The elegance of work culture and charisma instilled by the chairman still continues to vitalize the synchronized progress of the Nehru group of Instituitons, making it a prestigious center of learning and research. Let us all be blessed by the might of this great soul, who undoubtedly illuminates our path towards greater glory and success.
My beloved father and the former Chairman Late. P. K. Das established this prestigious quality Engineering College in the name and style as Jawaharlal College of Engineering and Technology an ISO 9001-2008 certificate institution at Lakkidi, Palakkad Dist. with special emphasis on Aeronautical Engineering course first of its kind in the state of Kerala which offers B.Tech programmes. Now the NGI is one of the highly branded institutions in the country offering various multifaceted courses ranging from UG, PG, Doctoral programmes in Medical, Aeronautics, Engineering, Architecture, Pharmacy, Management, Law, IT, Arts & Science, Commerce, Social Work, Bio-Science, Media Studies, Nursing, Fashion,Hotel Management, Research.
I am incredibly excited to note that, JCET has always devised some solid academic plan in all the previous years of its functioning, which has unquestionably enhanced the academic efficiency and competence of its students and faculty. Intelligent planning and stringent execution of its academic procedures remains the key to success of any institution or individual, as the saying goes “if we fail to plan., you plan to fail..” Academic planning is therefore mandatory in leading us safely through the corridors of success and glory in life, and JCET has always stood as a good example to this methodology. I also understand, the college regularly holds International seminars, Lectures, Workshops, Technical exhibitions, Moto-Expo, nsite, Bloom, NCC and NSS camps for ensuring the academic excellence and overall grooming of students for attaining personal and professional success.
NGI entered into a partnership with various industries and organizations, to extend the sphere of employability at a global level by making each student professionally efficient and highly competitive in diverse fields of engineering, management and Information technology. Campus placements and job opportunities have touched new heights as Nehru Corporate Placements and Industrial Relations-NCPIR began imparting training to the students to develop and device professional and technical skills thereby enhancing their employability to extreme. I hope that, the forthcoming academic year will take us through the challenges and high-tides to the shore of immense opportunities which will bring more laurels to the students, the faculty and the institution.
