Model Engineering College, Thrikkakara, Ernakulam is a premier institute of engineering that has carved a niche for itself in the field of technical education in a very short span of time. Since its inception in 1989, under the aegis of the Institute of Human Resource Development for Electronics, IHRDE (now IHRD,Government of Kerala undertaking), the college has made its presence felt in the technical horizon of the state.
Model engineering college Thrikkakara ernakulam offers engineering courses in Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering and Electronics & Biomedical Engineering. Unique in its structure, methods and goals, the college is strongly rooted in a philosophy of training and research that emphasizes the intimate relationships between knowledge and its application and seeks to promote the creation of an ideal society.
Situated at Thrikkakara, an idyllic spot in the fringes of Kochi, the location offers an advantage as it is just a stone's throw away from industrial centres including Aluva, the industrial capital of the state and Cochin Export Processing Zone(CEPZ) yet sufficiently far enough from the hustle of Kochi city, providing a congenial atmosphere for diligent academic pursuit.
Model engineering college Thrikkakara ernakulam has been selected for financial assistance by TEQIP (Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme), a World Bank Project. As part of the scheme, it is expected to receive around Rs10 crores . An amount of Rs 4.3 crores has already been sanctioned.
The college is affiliated to the Cochin University of Science and Technology, which confers the degree of Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech) in various disciplines.

The college owes its origin to the farsightedness and vision of its founder patron, Most Rev Dr Joseph Attippetty, the first Indian Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Verapoly.Greatly concerned by the lack of educational facilities for the members of his diocese, His Grace ventured upon the mission of starting a new college at Ernakulam, the then capital of the Former State of Cochin. His efforts bore fruit in 1946 when the University of Madras accorded sanction to His Grace for starting a second grade college.The college began functioning on 16th of July, 1946, in the old St.Albertís High School building, situated in front of the present college campus with 150 students in the first year intermediate class.Years have gone by. Long strides have been taken by the college in its development.
