LICET is born out of global vision of Loyola College Society (LCS) and ICAM group. The core philosophy of ICAM and LCS is to facilitate conducive atmosphere in which men and women form themselves into COMPETENT, CREATIVE, COMMITTED, COMPASSIONATE and SOCIALY RESPONSIBLE professionals. These four C’s form the commonness of our partnership. Loyola College and ICAM, both guided by the Jesuit methodology of education, have linked a joint venture of founding an engineering college which would be a unique model not only in forming engineers with social responsibility but also serving as a melting pot of Indian and French cultures preparing Indian students to serve in European industries. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Loyola College Society (LCS) and the ICAM group in Lille, France in April 2009.


Mechanical Department was started in the year 2010 with a mere students strength of 60 and 8 years past the current strength stands at 550, along with highly qualified , experienced and dedicated teaching and non-teaching faculties, some of whom have more than 30 years of experience. The students go beyond the Anna University syllabus and do System discovery, System analysis (Innovative Programme) in the I year and II year respectively. To make our students Industry ready in multidisciplinary technology, we have the students chapter of Professional Societies like ASHRAE (American Society for Heating, Refrigerating, Airconditioning Engineers), ISHRAE (Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating, Air conditioning Engineers), SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers), ISTE (Indian Society for Technical Education. Students from 4th semester visit France (ICAM-UNIVERSITY) and participate in Summer Programmes. Students after 6th semester visit Comillas University, Spain during vacation and work on various inter-disciplinary research projects. 


Department of Mechanical Engineering, LICET is organising its eighth National Level Technical Symposium (TORQ 2018) common for all the departments on 18th August, 2018. The Technical Symposium gives knowledge on the current trends in Engineering. The objective of the symposium is to help the students to exhibit their technical skills and to enlighten their technical knowledge. This symposium will pave the way for our budding engineers to transform their dreams in to reality and to build a strong INDIA.
