Providence College of Engineering is the realisation of the vision of the late Shri George Mathew (Monachan) of the Pazhavana family of Chengannur.
A successful NRI businessman, his vision was to build a legacy in his hometown that would make a meaningful contribution to the future of the state and nation.
Born in Chengannur on 9th April 1951, Monachan was the only son of the late Shri PV Mathew and the late Smt Rachel Mathew.
After a seven-year career in government service in Rajasthan, in 1977 he moved to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where he embarked on a 42-year career in the oil & gas engineering industry.
In 2012 he founded the MGM Society and poured his heart and soul into building an engineering college unmatched in infrastructure and facilities.
Providence College of Engineering was launched with fanfare in 2015 and under his visionary leadership, the institution rose to become the youngest and one of the most prominent engineering colleges in Kerala.
His indelible mark can be seen in every aspect of the institution.
After setting up the college and witnessing the graduation of its first batch of engineers, Monachan passed away on 9th September 2019, having paved the way for generations to follow.
