His Beatitude Moran Mor Cyril Baselios Catholicos

His Beatitude Moran Mor Cyril Baselios Catholicos, the first Major Archbishop of the Malankara Syrian Catholic Church established this Institution with a sublime objective namely, to provide quality technical education based on fundamental human values. To quote from the words of wisdom of the Late Major Archbishop His Beatitude Moran Mor Cyril Baselios Catholicos: “…. this Engineering College is meant to train and develop men and women of higher caliber equipped with the most modern scientific knowledge and technical skills destined not only to help our people in their march towards progress abut also to bring glory and honour to our people and our Country.

His Beatitude Moran Mor Baselios Cardinal Cleemis Catholicos

Patron (Major Archbishop of the Malankara Syrian Catholic Church)

The establishment and the astonishing progress of the College owe greatly to the vision and toil of His Beatitude Moran Mor Cyril Baselios Catholicos, the former Major Archbishop of Trivandrum. This College has been established with a sublime objective, namely to provide quality technical education based on fundamental human values. As the motto of the College ‘Duc In Altum’, very well depicts what we aim at is something more than the ordinary and the mediocre, without at the same time compromising on values. We wish to reach out to all sections of our society without the distinction of caste, creed, etc. In short, Mar Baselios College Of Engineering And Technology is envisaged to be a glowing example of the philosophy of education and the apostolate of human resource development which the Major Archdiocese of Trivandrum has been pursuing for the last Eight Decades. The Major Archdiocese has every reason to be proud of the quality and greatness of the service that this Institution is providing to the society and of its potential in radically transforming our society for a better tomorrow. We are sure, thousands of young men and women will come out of this Institution, fully equipped to contribute their valuable share in the great mission of Nation-building. My wish and prayer is that the College may live upto the great dreams of its Founders and be an agent of social transformation.

His Excellency Most Rev. Dr. Samuel Mar Irenios

Education is the investment in Human Resource Development. It is the art of training and equipping the youth to be the builders of future, enabling them to multiply wisely and judiciously the “God-given Talent”. The future of humanity will be bright only if intellectual, emotional and spiritual evolution is ensured through education. Let the decade-old endeavour of Mar Baselios College of Engineering and Technology in pursuit of knowledge be ever fruitful, contributing to the enhancement of human dignity.
