Marian Engineering College always focuses its activities to solve unemployment problem that exist in the society. We identify all possible ways by which our students can achieve a successful career. Even though a good number of students are recruited by companies through campus recruitment, we also help to mould themselves as job providers, not as job seekers.
Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (IEDC) focus its activities keeping this as its prime motto. Students are encouraged to think out of the syllabus to identify problems, which can’t be solved, and to develop a product as outcome of solution. They are given end to end support through which they can file a patent and market the product. Lots of successful startups are functioning in the campus and incubated in the Marian Technology Incubation Centre. Students attend lot of technology seminars and hands on trainings, through which they can improve their technical skill and sharpen their thought process. The IEDC is affiliated to Kerala Startup Mission at Technopark, Thiruvananthapuram.
