It was in the early 1990s that I was deeply concerned about the regional Imbalance in the facilities available for Technical Education. No doubt there were quite a few Engineering Colleges in our district and our students were deprived of the fruits of Technical Education..
கேடில் விழுச்செல்வம் கல்வி யொருவற்கு
மாடல்ல மற்றை யவை.
शिक्षा-धन है मनुज हित, अक्षय और यथेष्ट ।
अन्य सभी संपत्तियाँ, होती हैं नहिं श्रेष्ठ ॥
(Thirukkural number 400)
Meaning: One’s learning alone is one’s indestructible and outstanding wealth, nothing else possesses this special value.
The long dreamt vision of mine and the quest to empower the youth of this nation through education, started to materialize in the early 1990s with the maiden venture of starting a polytechnic college in the Kanchipuram District. Following the overwhelming success of this institution, various institutions were established in diverse disciplines across the rural packets of Kanchipuram, Thiruvannamalai and Vellore Districts. In the same stratum, RANIPPETTAI ENGINEERING COLLEGE was established in the year 1999 with Bachelor Degree courses in Engineering. With liberalization, privatization and globalization, scope for Industrial growth in our country has increased many folds, leading to an increased technical manpower demand. Keeping this in mind, I understand the responsibilities and duties that this millennium demands. My primary concern is to empower the young students joining in our college to meet the type of responsibilities and duties that this world needs. This is achieved appropriately and efficiently by inculcating the overall personality development of the students viz., Communication skills, presentation skills, ability to work in a team, leadership qualities, strong basic knowledge of the subjects, updating on current trends, identifying and acquiring skills required in the market through the most dedicated and experienced members of the faculty. Besides above, we motivate them to have a deep sense of creativity, innovation to be successful entrepreneurs and an interest for research. In addition to above, we train our students to be successful world class engineers with ethical values.
