R.S. Munirathinam,Chairman EngineerinEngineering is not just about the pure technical education and in the present world there is no space for such engineers as the real talent lies in the raising of an entrepreneurial culture. Students with entrepreneurial training prove to be effective team members and managers with innovative thoughts.

In 2008, when Lakshmikanthammal Educational Trust laid the foundation for RMK College of Engineering and Technology (RMKCET), the institute aimed at transforming mere learners to achievers in the global level and they never knew that their idea of transformation would become the utmost need in future. The founder Chairman Vidya Ratna Shri R S Munirathinam says, “In RMKCET it is an all round effort by everyone concerned. The students are successful and that is our goal. We provide the atmosphere and the students always rise to the occasion. This proves that all our efforts have borne fruits.”

The Vice Chairman Shri R M Kishore always works with dedication and is happy when he says, “The students are working a sustained and unflinching attempts in mastering various subjects and skills in order to get good results and land plum jobs.”

The need for entrepreneurship education is well recognized and students are taught about the required knowledge, tools, and attitudes to identify opportunities. The institute established an Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC) in the year 2014 and has been actively conducting programs in entrepreneurship with concerted initiatives to promote entrepreneurship among the students. “We motivate our students to take part in entrepreneurship programs to gain insights into market needs,” says Dr. T Rengaraja, Principal of RMKCET. The cell organizes various programs to improve technical, communication and personality development of students. Through the EDC, students are able to find new opportunities and they turn into be job creators rather than job seekers.

Located in Puduvoyal in Thiruvallur district, Tamil Nadu, the college started its journey with Four departments namely Computer Science and Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering,

From the time of establishment, the students of RMKCET have been successful in meeting the expectations of the recruiters by exhibiting the skill sets that will prove them to be an asset for the organizations. “We train students according to their interests and the counseling is provided based on the industrial trends,” adds the Principal. The institute has established various centers to bridge the gap between industries and academics. Digital Enterprise COE develops programming skills and mobile app development skills of students and at the same time the Front End Technologies COE develops User Interface Design skills of students that match the industry expectations. PLM COE, Telecom COE and Factory Automation COE also work with the intention to improve the employability in factory automation and telecom skills fields accordingly.

“We train our students to be professionally competent and along with it, we motivate them with the required soft skills like laudable leadership, good teamwork, creativity, negotiating skill and communication,” says the Principal. The training and placement service operates year round
