Dhanalakshmi College of Engineering (DCE), an offshoot of the prestigious Dhanalakshmi Education Trust was set up near Tambaram at Chennai in the year 2001-2002. DCE is the brainchild of the eminent and dedicated academician and former professor of Anna University Dr. V. P Ramamurthi. The college is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and affiliated to Anna University, Chennai. DCE is a sister institute of the Indian Institute of Professional Education(IIPE), an institute offering coaching for professional courses entrance examinations, also founded byDr. V. P. Ramamurthi in the year 1993.
Dhanalakshmi College of Engineering has now grown into a ‘distinguished centre for engineering and technological studies’, providing a serene environment and congenial atmosphere for learning. The institution not only provides quality engineering education to mould the students into technologically sound, efficient, effective, and creative engineers but also moulds them as responsible human beings.
The college offers six under graduate programmes in engineering and three post graduate programmes. The undergraduate programmes are:
1. Electrical and Electronics Engineering
2. Electronics and Communication Engineering
3. Computer Science Engineering
4. Information Technology
5. Mechanical Engineering
6. Civil Engineering
The post graduate programmes offered are:
1. Embedded Systems
2. Computer Science Engineering
3. Master of Business Administration
The four UG programmes EEE, ECE, CSE, and IT are accredited by NBA, New Delhi and the institution is ISO 9001:2008 certified.
Today, DCE has grown in leaps and bounds and it is no wonder that DCE has become cynosure of the eyes of many, hankering for the distinguished centre of technological learning.
Discipline, Character, and Education are the three tenets for which DCE stands, and is certainly the haven where values blend seamlessly to churn out engineers for future.
To provide competent technical manpower capable of meeting the global requirements of the industry.
To contribute to the promotion of Academic Excellence in pursuit of Technical Education at different levels.
To train the student to sell his brawn and brain to the highest bidder but never put a price tag on heart and soul.

To pursue MBA at DCE students must satisfy following eligibility criteria.
The minimum qualification to apply for admission to the MBA Program is a Bachelor's Degree (10+2+3 years of education) in any discipline which is recognized by the Association of Indian Universities, or any degree equivalent to the Bachelor's Degree, with a minimum of 50% aggregate marks in the Secondary / Higher Secondary / Pre-degree Examinations (or equivalent) conducted by a Board / University.
Those appearing for the final year of the Bachelor's degree examinations may also apply subject to completing their examinations or viva-voce, if any, before June 30. Such candidates will however have to fulfil the above eligibility requirements in respect of minimum academic qualifications for admission and furnish evidence to that effect latest by October 31. At the time of interview and/or admissions, they will be required to produce a letter from their College Principal / Head of Institution stating the exam dates.
Candidates with appropriate industry experience will be given preference for admissions. Their work experience will be given due weightage in terms of the organization, position held and duration.
Selected candidates will be called to attend Group Discussions and Personal Interviews. Multiple Group Discussion & Personal Interview lists will be released in phases, both before and after the Application Deadline. The intimation for interview & group discussion is done through registered post and e-mail. In the case of some programs, Group Discussion may not be conducted, in favor of a rigorous interview process.
The selection criteria for calling candidates for admissions is based on multiple factors as follows:
- Past academic performance
- Quality & content of the answers in the application form
- Work experience, if any , in terms of job content & organization
- Group Discussion & Interview performance (applicable for final admissions only)
- Extra curricular activities, other interests & accomplishments
- Competitive Test score (CAT, MAT, XAT, CMAT)
A combination of all the above factors are used to determine the eligibility of candidates to be offered final admission. Test scores are NOT the only criteria for selection.
A high test score does not guarantee a call for Group Discussion/Interview. The selection criteria are based on multiple factors as mentioned above.
