Principal’s Desk| TKMCE

TKM PrincipalHigher Education in our country has been undergoing tremendous changes for the last two decades. In addition to the domain knowledge, what will drive today’s children to success is an innate understanding of the inter-connectedness and inter-dependencies that form the underpinnings of the global village. Keeping abreast with these changes and adapting them in our institution pose great challenges before us, since it demands us to redefine our infrastructure, etiquettes, mindset and attitude.

In TKM, excellence is a habit, especially when it comes to the teaching learning process which was built by our great teachers in the past. The management has been illustrious in following the footprints of our great founder Janab A. Thangal Kunju Musaliar and guiding us with unstinting vision and magnanimity. The alumni spread our glory and reputation across the globe and keep an emotional bondage with their alma mater.

Our basic objective shall be to transform TKM into a ‘centre of excellence’ in teaching and research. We need a concerted effort to further enhance the quality of our teaching learning process and infrastructural facilities in consonance with the best practices and facilities in globally reputed institutions. Let us together make TKM a place to produce world-class professionals who are committed to serve the humanity and transform the society through their innovative knowledge and skills.

Privileged to be a part of this great institute for more than 25 years, I have absolute faith in its capacity to deliver and I believe, together we can make it happen…

Let ‘together towards excellence’ be our motto….
