Message from the Director
Jawaharlal College of Engineering & Technology was founded in 2008 as the 12th offspring of Nehru Group of Institutions (NGI), a well known establishment in the field of higher education in South India, founded by late P.K. Das, a great visionary and a veteran educationist. Started with Nehru College of Aeronautics and Applied Sciences in 1968 at Coimbatore, NGI marked a steady growth True that the sudden death of the founder Chairman created an immediate vacuum, but it was soon bridged up by the responsibility with full spirit and devotion by his two young sons, Adv.Dr.P. Krishnadas and Dr.P. Krishnakumar, as Chairman & Managing Trustee and CEO and Secretary respectively. By 2013, they started the Nursing College and by 2014 the P.K. Das Institute of Medical Sciences,in Vaniyamkulam,Ottapalam,Palakkad
Nehru group of Institutions grew not only in size and shape but also in quality and values. All NGI establishments are well known for upholding human values and maintaining exemplary discipline. JCET started with 240 intake in 4 branches in 2008, today has 6 branches with an annual intake of 600 students for B.Tech. It is noteworthy to state that this is the only institute where Aeronautical Engineering branch exists in the University.Also we have 6 M.Tech Programmes in 3 different departments and a Business School offering MBA as a part of JCET with an annual intake of 60.

Nehru Accademy of law and Nehru college of Architecture are also started functioning in JCET campus from 2015 onwards giving a total face lift to this campus.JCET has been known for academic excellence which is evidenced as this college is rated as one among the top ten engineering colleges in the University as per Calicut University rating based on University exam results. With the able guidance and valuable support given by the management, the untiring efforts taken by the devoted faculty and staff and the hard work put in by the students, JCET is heading to emerge as a Centre of Excellence fulfilling the dream of our founder Chairman. Splendid infrastructure, remarkable facility and competent faculty coupled with a well organized course calendar incorporating co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, JCET stands different from other institutions.
