Founder : His Beatitude Moran Mor Cyril Baselios Catholicos
(The late Major Archbishop of Trivandrum)
From the words of wisdom of the founder… “..Bethany Hills, one of the most beautiful hillocks in the city of Thiruvanathapuram with an extent of about 200 acres of land, houses a lot of educational and other institutions under the patronage of the Archdiocese of Thiruvanathapuram. We are proud of all of them, as they render yeomen service to our people. The prestigious Mar Ivanios College and other educational and religious institutions in the campus are to be specially mentioned of. The newly set up Mar Baselios College of Engineering and Technology is a glorious feather placed on the cap of this Educational complex. We cherish great hopes and exultant expectations in terms of its success as a professional institution. I am labouring the obvious, if I insist that this Engineering College is meant to train and develop men and women of higher caliber, equipped with the most modern scientific knowledge and technological skills destined not only to help our people in their march towards progress but also to bring glory and honour to our people and our country. True to its motto ‘DUC IN ALTUM’ - leading to the heights of excellence – the students of our college are to strive for excellence both in their search for knowledge and skills and in the pursuit of success in life, in terms of their commitment to bring happiness to our fellow beings and for the development of our Nation. We hope and pray that Mar Baselios College of Engineering and Technology may produce the best results in the field of professional education .…..."
Patron: His Beatitude Moran Mor Baselios Cleemis Catholicos
(Major Archbishop of Trivandrum)
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 very well depicts, namely, Duc in Altum, 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 glaring example of the philosophy of education and the apostolate of human resource development which the Major Archdiocese of Trivandrum has been pursuing since the last seven 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 or 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 up to the great dreams and ideals of its founders and be an agent of social transformation.
