It has always been the tradition of the Diocese of Palai to open up new avenues for higher education for the people of the diocese and for others. The Technical Education Trust of the Diocese of Palai has entered into the field of professional education in 2002 by establishing an engineering college named ‘St Joseph’s College of Engineering and Technology, Palai. India becomes a major tourist attraction for foreigners and Travel and Tourism Sector is growing fast.
