IEEE Student Chapter[edit]

CEM has one of the most active IEEE student branches in the state.

India's First High Altitude Research Centre[edit]

India’s first High Altitude Research Centre for weather study is located inside the campus. This is a joint venture of Directorate of Environment and Climate Change, IIT Madras and Centre for Continuing Education Kerala on behalf of College of Engineering Munnar. The agreement signed by the trio will surely bring revolutionary change in the field of climate change. The location of the college is best suited for the establishment of Research Centre.

Pollution and the associated climate change are major concerns of the current millennium. These factors will both significantly and negatively impact our quality of life if left unattended. The study of these two areas is therefore absolutely relevant and necessary.

To this end, Professor Sachin S Gunthe and his team wish to establish a pollution monitoring lab in Munnar. Munnar is very strategically located, being far from roads and urban areas; the data obtained is to be compared with that obtained from urban areas to estimate the impact of increasing pollution on the regional climate of South India. Studies have already been performed on the campus of the College of Engineering, Munnar and so far three papers have been published in top quality peer reviewed journals.
