MEC’s global pedigree, industry focus, unique pedagogical model, world-class faculty and outstanding facilities are designed to set the college’s engineering graduates apart from even the most reputed Indian engineering institutions.
Mahindra École Centrale (MEC) came into existence as the result of a joint partnership signed in late 2013 between Tech Mahindra, École Centrale of Paris, France (now known as CentraleSupélec) and JNTU- Hyderabad.
CentraleSupélec was officially established on January 1st, 2015, bringing together two leading engineering schools in France; École Centrale Paris (founded in 1829) and Supélec.
École Centrale Paris was among the most prestigious and selective grandes écoles, producing illustrious engineers like Gustave Eiffel (1855), designer of the Eiffel Tower and the internal structure of the Statue of Liberty; Georges Leclanché (1860), inventor of Leclanché cell; Émile Levassor and René Panhard (1864), founders of the first car manufacturing company, Panhard et Levassor; André Michelin (1877), founder of Michelin; Louis Blériot (1895), aviation pioneer, first pilot to cross the Channel; Armand Peugeot (1895), founder of automobile maker Peugeot (Peugeot PSA); Marcel Schlumberger (1907), co-founder of Schlumberger Limited, and many more.
This high level Indo-French partnership makes MEC stand out from rest of the renowned engineering colleges in the country. The MEC logo, a tribute to the flags of the two nations, is itself symbolic of this deep synergy between two nations, and industry-academia at the core.
The (then) Indian Ambassador to France, Shri Arun Kumar Singh had defined this significant collaboration as a ‘Shining Jewel of Indo-French collaboration in the higher engineering education’ , at the launch ceremony of MEC in Paris, March, 2014.
The “Privileged Partnership Agreement” with CentraleSupélec signed in 2013 was extended in February 2018 for an additional 5 years. Under this renewed agreement, students of MEC have a larger scope of opportunities and international exposure.
Mahindra École Centrale Engineering College uses an interdisciplinary model of education that creates three dimensional engineers; high level scientific and technical generalists, experts in initiating and piloting innovative projects, and well-rounded experts with a strong international culture. MEC’s ambition is to develop engineering graduates into leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators. MEC’s curriculum includes :
MEC is a high tech facility replete with most advanced scientific infrastructure. It is set in a breath-taking ambience providing a unique cultural immersion in a predominantly green campus with luxurious dorms and suites, sports, recreational and multi-cuisine facilities.
