Built on a strong tradition of imparting knowledge, the Malankara Catholic Church has been carrying forward the mission of educating the younger generations for the past Eight Decades. The Church believes in the wholesome formation of the youth in academic, moral and spiritual dimensions to mould them as the makers of history.
Having established hundreds of Primary, Secondary and Higher Secondary Schools, Industrial Training Institutes, Teacher Training Colleges, a few first grade Arts and Science Colleges, a Medical College and the Medicity, the Malankara Catholic Church’s long cherished dream of starting an Engineering College was realized in 2002 with the establishment of the MAR BASELIOS COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY (MBCET). The College is administered by the Malankara Catholic Educational Society of the Major Archdiocese of Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.
Situated amidst 17 Educational Institutions in the Mar Ivanios Vidyanagar, just 5 kms from the heart of the city of Thiruvananthapuram, MBCET stands tall as a symbol of the quest for Professional and Technological Studies set against the backdrop of the serene and panoramic Mar Ivanios Vidyanagar away from the hustle and bustle of the city life. The campus provides the ideal milieu for academic pursuits.

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.

Patron: His Beatitude Moran Mor Baselios Cardinal Cleemis Catholicos (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.
