Maharaja's Technological Institute is a premier technical education center in Kerala targeting the rural people. Even though, the institution is located in the heart of Thrills town, it is surrounded by a number of villages which are backward. This institution serves as a Nodal Polytechnic for the Thrills District in which seven polytechnics are located. The college has hostel facilities for men, which attracts students from distant rural locations.
The college also has continuing education center catering to the need based skill requirements of industry and society. As most of the students hail from remote areas, additional training is given through NSS, NCC, ISTE activities so as to build up their self confidence, interpersonal skills and awareness. Special care is given to the requirements of ladies students especially those from the rural sections of the society through Women in development programmers.
As the institute nears its platinum jubilee steps are afoot to effect all round development by improving the infrastructure, including starting of out reach centers and bringing in more subjects to face the challenges of the new millennium.
Even though newer courses were added, technology and syllabus upgraded and intake increased, proportionate increase in civil infrastructure has not taken place. An Electronics and Computer block were built with the aid of World Bank during 1993. But even this is inadequate for the current requirements. Except for the Electronics Block, all other buildings are over 50 years old. Most buildings have asbestos roofing, which, as your good self are aware, is obsolete and unhealthy. Water leak in rainy season and excruciating heat in summer have to be borne by the students. These, along with asbestos dust, also cause damage to costly, modern equipment. As per the AICTE norms asbestosroofing is not allowed for educational buildings. The building often requires extensive maintenance, which is uneconomic in the long run.
M.T.I being the nodal polytechnic of Thrissur district, chance interviews of polytechnic admissions and other district-level departmental functions are held here. The students strength o the institution is 1200, but it still has only an auditorium with a capacity of 200. The shortage of space results in students and guardians crowding queues overflowing to the road, especially during admission procedure. Hence it is vital that an auditorium of capacity of at least 750 is essential. In view of the poor physical condition of the building and its inherent limitations, it is requested that the present building may be replaced by a better quality one, with higher capacity. In view of the paucity of space, it is also suggested that a multi-storied building may be constructed, with provisions to incorporate our class rooms of capacity 60 each, Laboratory for Civil Engineering, Two Drawing halls for 60 students each, Seminar Hall for 100 students, and an auditorium for at least 750 students. MTI, Thrissur is in Diamond Jubilee year. We are now living in an era in which educational institutions are changing, facing global competitions and challenges. In such a scenario, an august educational institution like MTI, in the government sector, having a reputation of its own, needs to be revamped and modernized to keep up with the current trends Considering the importance of this institution and gravity of the situation..
