Central Polytechnic College is one of Kerala's premier technical institutions. The College is under the Directorate of Technical Education, Government of Kerala and is affiliated to the State Board of Technical Examinations. Since the day of its inception in 1958, this college has been disseminating quality technical education and moulding technicians with expertise, attitude and responsibility. The college was started on the premises of the school of Arts (College of Fine arts, Palayam, Trivandrum). But today, it sprawls over 30 acres of land at Vattiyoorkavu, the place famous owing to the 1938 Vattiyoorkavu conference. At present, the college proudly offers Diploma courses and certificate courses in technical subjects. Our mission is to impart quality technical education to enable young Technicians to meet global challenges and to mould them into responsible citizens in the service of humanity. The College has six Departments such as Civil, Computer, Electrical, Electronics, Textile Technology and Mechanical.
The word meaning of association is mental connection or relation between thoughts, feelings, ideas, or sensations. The relation, the bond and the unity has always been there, long before the idea of having a mechanical engineering association was born. But the mechanical engineering association has a lot more to do other than bonding them together. The unity and the energy have to be positively directed towards improving the technical compatibility and social commitment. Mechanical engineering aims to play a pivotal role in the development of students as engineers by various out-of-curriculum and extracurricular activities. MEA aims to inculcate among its members an awareness and appreciation of the various disciplines of not just Mechanical Engineering but also other relevant fields. Our mission is to prepare students for careers in mechanical and related engineering disciplines for professional development, life-long learning, and contributions to society. Mechanical Engineering Association aims to maintain the high level of interaction existing between the students and the faculty members. Apart from this, it organises technical sessions, workshops and contests through a close tie-up with the industry. It also assists in managing the resources and labs of the department.
