Vision of the institute

To be a global premier institution of professional education and research

Mission of the institute

Provide opportunities to deserving students of all communities, the Christian students in particular for quality professional education.

Design and deliver curricula to meet the national and global changing needs through student-centric learning methodologies.

Attract, nurture and retain the best faculty and technical manpower.

Consolidate the state-of-art infrastructure and equipment for teaching and research activities.

Promote all round personality development of the students through interaction with alumni, academia and industry.

Strengthen the Educational Social Responsibilities (ESR) of the institution.

Initiated for the betterment of deserving students

Established in the year 2002 with the initiative of the Bishop of Mangalore Dr Aloysius Paul D'Souza, SJEC is fulfilling the long cherished dream of the Diocese of Mangalore. The Diocese of Mangalore manages over 250 educational institutions and its contribution to transforming education is second to none. But there was a vacuum as the Diocese did not have a professional technical college to cater to the increasing number of students of the community, especially from the rural background and the poor, who wanted to pursue professional technical courses, until SJEC was formed.

Being a Christian minority institution, preference is given to Christian students when admitting students to various programmes in the College. Out of the total intake of 540 seats for B.E. courses, 40% is set aside for CET students, 30% for COMEDK, and 30% for Management Category students. Christian students taking admissions under COMEDK quota are offered seats at highly discounted fees (equivalent to CET fees) depending on the merit of the candidate. Students from all over the country and even from Gulf countries can also answer COMEDK to get admission to SJEC. NRI students can also seek admission through the NRI quota after appearing for COMEDK.

Adding sophistication to the process of learning

SJEC has continuously upgraded facilities for its students. The infrastructure has been modelled to suit the academic, residential, sports and recreational requirements of the students. The college has most modern infrastructure including spacious and well ventilated class rooms, fully equipped laboratories, central computer center, campus wide Wi-Fi connectivity with 280 mbps internet speed, sophisticated seminar halls for every department, 10000 square feet auditorium, modern library with online journals, multiple play grounds for indoor and outdoor games, cafeteria, bank, dispensary with full-time Campus doctor and nurses, and all other amenities to ensure an ideal learning atmosphere for students. The college also has a counselling center with a dedicated Campus Counsellor to help the students adjust to professional studies.

SJEC also provides its students training on industry relevant tools, such as, ANSYS, CATIA, CADENCE, LABVIEW, MATLAB, etc. to enable the students to be job-ready and possess desirable skill-set to excel in their career. The institution also organizes training programs in soft-skills in association with reputed training institutes to enhance the aptitude and communication skills of students. Value education classes are made as part of regular academic calendar to impart valuable life lessons to ensure overall personality development of students.

The institution also has an elegantly built and self-sufficient separate boys and girls hostels. It has vegetarian and non-vegetarian food facility, staff quarters, security systems, chapel, separate multi-gym facilities for boys and girls, separate utility block etc. The institute has a guest house which has a capacity to accommodate up to 40 guests. A coffee-hut and a cane juice center are also present in the campus.

SJEC believes students report higher levels of engagement and learning at institutions where faculty members use active and collaborative learning techniques, engage students in experiences, emphasize higher-order cognitive activities in the class room, interact with students, challenge students academically, and value enriching educational experiences.

The college has maintained a healthy teacher-student ratio which has added a huge difference for the betterment of the students. A large number of Research and Development Projects are guided and supervised under the eagle eyes of the faculty.

The institute arranges visiting faculty from different parts of the country and from varied fields to supplement and synergize the curriculum with practical applications. The college faculty is always encouraged and provided all support to explore the possibilities of research and development. They are encouraged to publish research papers at national and international forums and are encouraged to keep pace with the latest developments in their field. The institute accords top priority to attract, nurture and retain its faculty and technical manpower. In this endeavour, the institute grooms its students by facilitating interaction with the alumni, academia and industry.


We understand that young people have dreams, big dreams, and we want to help them to achieve them. SJEC has set up scholarships and grants for socially and economically underprivileged students, especially young catholic from the rural areas who cannot afford the cost of professional technical education. Our range of scholarships and grants make education attainable for determined students. This financial year alone the college has given scholarships and concessions worth Rs. 4.5 crores. Grants like this provides opportunity to young people with exceptional talent in any field to broaden their vision abroad and improve their skills to operate in society, thus making them a future vehicle of change in their environment.

SJEC proudly announces the launch of ‘Design and development smartlabs’, the first start-up to come up in the SJEC campus. Initiated by John Baptist Rodrigues, an SJEC alumnus from the Class of 2016, and facilitated by SJEC, the company will focus of R&D solutions for product design. The Company is currently housed in the Center for Engineering Innovation Block of the College.

Moving from glorious past to a vibrant future

In just 16 years, SJEC has been placed among one of the top ranking professional colleges. And now the management is determined to ensure that the institution scales greater heights in the days to come and has been making concerted efforts in that direction. Obtaining autonomy for its programmes by 2020 is one of its goals. Autonomy would help the institution to be more student-centric and offer better courses. SJEC plans to enter into a MOU with important institutions and industries, both nationally and internationally.

The Institution has set-up an ‘Industry Interaction and Entrepreneurship Development Cell’ in the college with sub-affiliations across all departments in the college, which conducts training programmes aimed at generating industry exposure among students. Regular industrial visits, seminars, and video-conferences are held to facilitate interaction.

Plans are also afoot to initiate PG programs in advanced multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary areas of engineering and technology by 2020. The departments of Physics, Chemistry, and Mechanical Engineering have obtained research grants from Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), VGST-Karnataka, and Indian Plasma Research respectively amounting to Rs 90 lacs, for their selected research projects. Seeking more funds for R & D, encouraging the faculty to complete Ph.D. qualification is also under progress. The college has also set up a vibrant and pro-active alumni association with Chapters in Bengaluru and Mangaluru. A plan to set-up an alumni cell in Dubai is being worked upon. Collaborating with other universities and encouraging cultural exchange programmes are also among the future plans in an effort to make SJEC a reputed and sought-after professional technical educational institution.


The Institute has successfully managed to secure placements to many premier and MNC Companies from past many years. It is also a matter of great satisfaction that corporate giants like TCS, Wipro, Robosoft, HP, IBM, Bosch, Infosys, Tech Mahindra, ITC Infotech, L&T Infotech, Sonata Software, Yahoo, Aditya Birla Chemicals, Indian Navy, Amazon Web Services, HDFC Mutual Fund, Cadence, E-SoftSys etc., have recruited students of SJEC.

It is a matter of great pride that SJEC has had a placement status of more than 1000 plus placements in the past 3 years. The Placement and Training Department of SJEC regularly conducts programs to enhance the soft-skills and aptitude levels of the students.

It has been a very fruitful journey of a decade for SJEC which has climbed the popularity chart to emerge as a reputed institution in a short period. SJEC provides value-based education by adhering to the ideals of faith, truth, respect and professional ethics. In its endeavour to reach greater heights it has never compromised on these qualities and it will scout for a short cut to achieve this. The college strives to provide its students a holistic campus atmosphere which can act as a sturdy foundation for their entire life ahead.

    S.J.E.C. now has many disciplines of Engineering Education to offer. "Global Citizenship" is a key for every International student to apply for admission at S.J.E.C.
    Our school fees in India and also our board and lodge is attractive for foreign students to apply for Admission. But we have to do lots of marketing of S,J.E.C. in foreign lands where students would embrace the opportunity to enroll themselves as students.

    We have to therefore perform a good marketing strategy by advertising S.J.E.C. in various foreign countries. Our major concern in India is for foreign students to enjoy a healthy and safe environment to live and continue living without any interruption. The safety and security of a foreign student is absolutely essential, for which we have to do good marketing and advertisement abroad.

    India is certainly a good place for tens of thousands of foreign students to study and prosper. A foreign student can equally perform as a good foreign Ambassador in our country provided we know how to take care of him or her well with a safe and sound environment.

    Indeed S.J.E.C. has made great progress specially during the past few years. Father Valli worked hard to ensure that very best education was provided to the aspiring youngsters .... Father Joseph kept up the name and starded of The College and initiated improvements. Now Father Prakash has indeed put his heart and soul into the various projects and with his experience and fund of knowledge he intends taking the institution to greater heights.

    I join scores of people in wishing SJEC the very best.
