                     Travancore Engineering College was established in 2002 by Travancore Education Society, Kallambalam. The society was registered in 2001 under Charitable Societies Act of Travancore-Cochin 1955, by a group of visionaries and educationists with the intention of educational uplift of weaker sections.

One of the objectives of the Society was fulfilled with the establishment of Travancore Engineering College at Roadvila near Oyoor. The College started functioning with the approval from All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi and Government of Kerala. The University of Kerala granted affiliation for B.Tech courses in Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering and Electrical & Electronics Engineering with an intake of 60 students in each branch of study. The College started functioning in its permanent building on 21st October, 2002 under the able leadership of Dr. N. Kesavan Nair as the Principal.

                      During the years 2005 & 2008, the AICTE, after assessing the progress of the Institution, granted permission to start two additional B.Tech courses in Mechanical & Civil Engineering with an intake of 60 students each and in 2011 the College got approval for Telecommunication Engineering (Dept. of ECE). Today, the College has well equipped laboratories and workshops, qualified and experienced faculty members, a well stocked library, a fleet of vehicles, hostels and all other necessary facilities.
