Established in 1964, MES, under the leadership of eminent neurologist, late Dr. PK Abdul Gafoor was well-supported by a group of intellectuals with the sole mission of up- lifting the community in all spheres of life. They helped the Ernad Educational Association to carry forward its mission by giving essential loans and technical advice. When this attempt to failed, MES took up the challenge of taking over the institution with all its liabilities. Then on, the institution has witnessed remarkable progress and the primary objectives of the college have now been fulfilled.
The college has completed its fifty two years of service for the cause of Higher Education. So far the college has moulded the minds of thousands of people. It has changed and re-drawn the educational map of Malabar, and especially of the Eranad region. With thirteen programmes at the undergraduate level, seven at the postgraduate level, 4 career oriented Add-on courses, number of certificate and diploma courses in computer education and one research department, it is the biggest Aided and Affiliated College in Malappuram District. It is also the first institution from the district reaccredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council with A grade (3.5). Government of Kerala has included this college among the 13 colleges recommended for autonomous status from the state recently. Many of our courses like B.Sc Food Technology, B.Com with co-operation, BCom with Computer Application, B.A English with Journalism and Public Relations, B.A Mass Communication, M.Sc Chemistry with Polymer Chemistry and M.Sc Zoology with Entomology as special subjects and M.Sc Food Science and Technology are highly career oriented.
The institution conducts remedial classes, especially in English, Chemistry, Physics, Statistics and Mathematics for students whose level of performance is not satisfied. A landmark in the history of the college was a year-long celebration of the fortieth Anniversary. The fortieth anniversary was inaugurated by the then acting chairman of the UGC, Prof. Dr. V.N. Rajasekharan Pillai. Academic Seminars, Workshops, Professional Development Programmes, Staff Recreation Programmes etc were part of the celebrations. MES Mampad College has one unique distinction as the only partner college from Kerala of the Delhi-based Foundation for Academic Excellence and Access, for their prestigious Pathways Programme. Altogether there are only 22 Associate Colleges in the country at present. Pathways Programme is meant for inclusivity in education and thereby empowering of the less-privileged people. The Pathways of our college provides systematic training in three areas, viz English Language Communication Skills, Personality Development and Computer Knowledge. These areas were chosen after a careful diagnosis of students’ needs. Another prestigious and exclusive institutional venture is the Total Improvement Programme (TIP) for students and faculty implemented in association with Centre for Information and Guidance India (CIGI). The scheme has included all students of the college for capacity building.
