I bow with great reverence before Goddess Bhadra who perpetually brings well-being to all. It is the grace of the omnipresent and benign Universal Mother Bhadra who is enshrined in the pristine Shrine of Valia Koonambaikulam that has enabled us to initiate a great educational institution in her glorious name - the Valia Koonambaikulathamma College of Engineering and Technology (VKCET). The ancient and magnificent Temple has been reputed for its charitable and humanitarian activities like educational aid to poor and needy students, poor and old age homes, medical aid to the poor, provision of marriage expenses for the indigent girls, free food, etc. The temple trust organizes intellectual and educational enterprises like running a UP school, conducting periodical open quiz programmes, spiritual speeches, releasing spiritual publications and devotional music albums, etc. With great devotion and dedication, we are launching an engineering and technical higher education centre like VKCET. We intend to make admissions accessible to students from low income groups and merit will be the sole criteria for admission. We promise to maintain and sustain a great level of excellence to the institution by carefully selecting the teachers and other technical staff, keeping an eye for quality and impartiality. We will undertake all possible steps to provide ample accommodation and transportation facilities to students and staff. Students security will be ensured to the utmost with close monitoring of their activities by utilizing modern devices. I hope our mission and vision for the creation and 'sustenance' of a meritorious and benevolent educational environment will be fulfilled with the blessings of Valia Koonambaikulathamma.
