P. A. College of Engineering (P.A.C.E.) is an engineering college located in Karnataka, India. It is situated at Konaje, 25 km from Mangalore. P.A.C.E. was founded in 1999 by the Kerala-based businessman Dr. P.A. Ibrahim. Approximately 1,450 engineering students graduate each year.
The main building on the 60-acre campus was designed by Upalker Sadekar architects of Mumbai. The college was established with a sanctioned intake of 240 students per academic year; 60 students in each of four disciplines: Electronics and Communication, Telecommunications, Computer Science, and Information Science. Since then, three additional disciplines have been added – Mechanical Engineering, Biotechnology, and Civil Engineering. With these additions, the student intake per academic year doubled to 480 students.
The Electronics and Communication, Biotechnology, Chemistry and Computer Science departments each have dedicated research centers.
The trust continued its venture of establishing and running successful educational institutions. A Pre-University College was opened in the academic year 2005-06 with Science & Commerce streams having a combined student strength of 350. One of the factors of establishing this college was to have a feeder institution to the already established institution.
The latest venture of the Trust is P.A. Polytechnic, which was established in 2006. P.A. Polytechnic offers Diploma education in Electronics & Communication, Electrical & Electronics, Civil Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering. In 2009 a Mechanical Engineering branch was added.
The trust also runs hostels to house students. Boys live in one hostel, while girls live in another. Approximately 1,200 students are fed each day.
The Trust has plans of continuing in the path of development turning the institutions into an autonomous and ultimately into a Deemed University.
