Media Release

Mangaluru, Feb 26: St Joseph Engineering College (SJEC), Mangaluru, has been awarded the prestigious A+ grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) for five years. With a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 3.39 on a 4-point scale, SJEC has joined the elite list of colleges to be accredited with an A+ grade by NAAC in its very first cycle.

The NAAC peer team had visited the college on February 15 to 16 and rigorously assessed the college on multiple parameters. During the visit, the peer team appreciated the infrastructure, management, faculty, student contributions, teaching-learning process, institutional values and best practices adopted in the college. The fact that only 5 per cent of the higher education institutions in India have bagged A+ or higher grades by NAAC, adds to the credibility of the college that has been on a constant upswing.

The college is committed to offering quality education to all its students and the accreditation by NAAC reassures this fact. True to its motto of 'Service and Excellence', the hard work put in by the college has resulted in getting this recognition which has endorsed the academic framework and policies that the college has been practising since its inception. The college has been leveraging a flexible choice-based academic model that gives students the freedom to undergo learning in respective disciplines along with a transparent and continuous evaluation process that helps in their holistic development.

As far as the accreditation process is concerned, the fact that 70 per cent of the assessment is based on the data submitted by the institution that is assessed by a third party, makes the process even more stringent.

Owing to the Outcome-Based Education (OBE) practised at the college, SJEC has already been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) for four of its BE programs for three consecutive cycles, with the current cycle of accreditation being valid up to June 2022.

The college is completing 19 years of its existence and currently has more than 2,500 students on campus. This clean, green and smart campus has become the destination of choice for engineering seat aspirants in the coastal region. The candidates are attracted to the good infrastructure, academic ambience, discipline on campus, excellent placements, incubation facilities, support for entrepreneurship and innovation, competent faculty, and encouragement given to technical, cultural and sports activities.

Dr Rio D’Souza, principal of SJEC addressed the press meet in the presence of the director, Fr Wilfred Prakash D’Souza, assistant directors, Fr Rohith D’Costa and Fr Alwyn Richard D’Souza, Rakesh Lobo, HR manager, Dr Shreeranga Bhat, IQAC coordinator and Pavan Kumar B, NAAC coordinator.

    I heartily congratulate the Director, Principal, teaching and non-teaching faculties, students, scholars and alumni for this tremendous feat. Absolutely it was a team effort that succeeded nothing like before. It is a great occasion to be complacent or not yet setting clear objectives to achieve much higher grade next time so that SJEC gets international recognition must be the ambition of Director, Rev. Fr. Wilfred in the near future. Great !
