There has been a phenomenal growth of the technical Institution during the past three decades. In the past five years there has been a mushrooming of engineering Colleges in our state. It is a fact that there are 7 Engineering Colleges within 7 Km of radius in our capital city – Thiruvananthapuram. However it has resulted in certain imbalance in the technical education in the country. It is seen that the Polytechnic education has lagged behind the degree level education. Thus the ratio of degree to Diploma admission capacity is more than 2 where as ideally it should be 0.25 to 0.33. As a result of this, there is an under utilization of qualified engineers. The high cost of diploma level education and relatively poor financial capacity of the aspiring students is not attracting private investment into diploma level education. The return on investment in the polytechnic colleges is very low compared to the Engineering colleges.
But we are fully aware of our responsibility and we boldly faced the challenge by starting the first Polytechnic College in Kerala in self finance sector.

It all started with the great vision of Dr. K. Moidu and a few spirited academics realising that education and health were vital elements in a growing society, and that it was necessary to efficiently manage these two together for the upliftment of society through younger generations.
The result was the creation of the KMCT Group of educational institutions in Kozhikode in 1998. It was evident that to have a vision was not enough. Effective governance and quality education were seen as critical aspects.
From the very start the founders introduced the concept of faculty governance and quality education: all members of the faculty play an important role in administering the diverse academic and non – academic activities of the Institutes. The empowerment of the faculty has been the propelling force behind the high quality of learning experience at KMCT.
