Principal's Message

Ever since its inception in 2001, the Calicut University Institute of Engineering and Technology has been pivotal in imparting technical expertise in the region. Even though under self financing scheme, the institute, being directly run by the University, can boast of providing quality education at substantially lower costs, compared to privately run self-financing colleges.


The institute still has a long road to travel in order to achieve excellence in teaching, research and industry collaboration. The road ahead is tough. As they say, when going gets tough, only the tough gets going. So my best wishes to all to be tough to tread a path to success through hard work and dedication.

With best regards,
