Almost everyone wants to pursue a career they are passionate about or which is fascinating to them and respectable. When asked in childhood, most of us were very clear about our future aims because it was simple, either a doctor or an engineer! These were one of the most respected and popular professions, which stands true even today.
Today most students go on pursuing engineering as a choice of career for the sake of that dream and passion. However, the popularity of the field has increased the competition to quite an extent, making it difficult to find an institution to suit individual requirements and support the passion of the dreaming young child inside.
Taking care of that innovative child and keeping the fire igniting, Thadomal Shahani Engineering College supports its students to reach the heights of their careers. With the aim to create game changers in the field, the institution is currently making efforts under Dr G. T. Thampi, Principal of the college.
Let’s step into the insightful institution and learn more about Thadomal Shahani Engineering College.

He is successful in modifying the collective consciousness of the Institute and in channelizing juvenile impatience constructively to develop market-driven competency building and create the spectacular.
He is instrumental in creating the culture of coding and successfully integrated hackathons as the single most important flagship co-curricular activities in the Institute.
His everyday discourses are known to impress the stakeholders to develop a sense of ownership of the processes, which subsequently catapult learners into the orbit of excellence.
Engagement: Students Fair Extracurricular Activities
The institution encourages students’ participation in intercollegiate, intra-college arts, and sports festivals; not only this, but it also conducts and participates in hackathons.

The institution makes sure that the mentors of students and the student council are instrumental in marketing the events and resulting in maximum participation among pupils.
Little More of Effort
The institution judiciously and profitably uses ‘Mini Projects’ every semester. These projects are part of the curriculum to initiate learners to get exposure to various tools, mainly open-source software, for solving idealized real-time problems. This results in learning new skills and capabilities in relation to what they study in functional areas.
Preparing for Future Battles
TSEC has successfully created a centre of excellence in the majority of the departments. We have a well-designed pedagogy to help learners develop conceptual clarity and problem-solving strategies. The initiative to nudge the pupil to interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary research programs and collaborative project work has been an enterprising step by TSEC. It has also successfully provided limited international placements and internship opportunities.
Flames of Fame
The National Board of Accreditation has accredited the Institute for all eligible branches of study since 2016. Currently, it is undergoing accreditation by NAAC.
