Loyola – ICAM College of Engineering And Technology - LICET Chennai - LICET
The college aims at training young men and women of quality to be leaders in all walks of life and serve their fellowmen with justice, truth and love. It is expected that this training would play a vital role in bringing about the desired change for the betterment of the people of our country, more particularly the poorer and marginalized sections of the society and Dalits. Further it will foster an atmosphere of intellectual vigour and moral rectitude in which the young men and women of our country may find their fulfillment and achieve greatness as eminent men and women for others.The vision of the college is "To form responsible engineers, who would engineer a just society."The motto of Loyola institutions is: Let your light shine. And the dynamic spirit would be: Ever to excel – to do ever more and to do ever better. The students of LICET would become men and women who would engineer a just society in the world and LICET would also transform itself into the epicentre of social and cultural change, leading to equitable growth. Further, ‘the Society of Jesus has carried flame for nearly five hundred years through innumerable social and cultural circumstances that have challenged it intensely to keep that flame alive and burning’ (GC 35 D2/1). The Jesuit institutions of higher learning serve as major channels of social advancement for the poor and the marginalized so that each one of them becomes ‘a fire that kindles other fires’ of equality, human dignity, and social justice.
The expectation of the parents is placement as the culmination of engineering studies. LICET management considers placement training as leadership formation to ‘engineer a just society’. The Placement Cell takes all efforts to place LICET students well but the cooperation of the students and parents are essential in achieving the common goal.
