My Ambition is to create an Engineering Institute of Eminence and of Excellence wherein aspiring students from rural and backward regions could have the best of Engineering Education at affordable costs. It was the ardent wish of the great visionary and philanthropist Smt.P.Valliammai, W/o.Late S.Ps.S.Pichappa of Devakottai to establish in memory of her son P.Shanmuganathan an Institution of Eminence and of Excellence wherein aspiring students from rural and backward regions could have the best of Engineering Education at affordable costs.



Her son Dr.P.Manikandan as the Correspondent devotes himself with a total commitment and dedication to shape this institution into a model of excellence. His ultimate aim is to develop SEC into the largest institution which delivers the best engineers from the rural parts of tamilnadu who are made equally competent enough with the students from the major cities. His noble vision of providing the world class educational facilities to the rural students and thereby equipping them with the latest technical knowhow has made the “dream come true” for the poor and downtrodden in Tamilnadu. This great revolution is being brought in the form of “free technical education”, to the hands of the students who belong to the economically backward group of the society. For this great human cause, the International Tamil University, USA has crowned him with “honorary doctorate” in the year 2012.  



 The biggest source of inspiration for all the major milestones of SEC is the secretary of this institution Mr.M.Viswanathan. He is an industrialist who had the indepth interest of making the young generation into powerful, knowledgeable and ethically organized at all angles. He gives his best guidance to mould the students of this institution into the best products which the current industrial arena requires. He innovates and motivates all the social programmes that the college undertakes towards the enlightment of the rural students by the way of providing quality education with creativity and social thoughts. He brings new insights into the minds of young engineers.
