The IEDC (Innovation & Entrepreneurship Development Cell) came into existence in Trinity College of Engineering in 2011. The IEDC Mission is to expand our institution's perspective to infuse and foster the growth of innovation and entrepreneurship amongst the faculty and students. It also brings about the recognition of ideas and innovations from the study and faculty side and supporting them to make their ideas & dreams a reality. IEDC aims to develop products (either software/hardware) which have market value, prepare business plan and to form a company. It helps to make the students learn the value of product, pricing of the product, marketing strategy, funding and the process of registration of company.
Trinity College's Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Center is guided by the Startup mission of Kerala(formerly known as 'Technopark Technology Business Incubator'). Trinity-IEDC can incubate more than 5 companies and now currently 3 companies are incubated. A dedicated high speed Internet connection and workstations are provided for the startup companies.
The unique strength of the college is that it encourages faculty entrepreneurship as well. The presence of these companies and faculty entrepreneurs provides the best encouragement for student entrepreneurship. Such techno-entrepreneurs on campus are the invaluable asset for mentoring the startups.
Various Add on courses, Hands on Workshops and seminars are regularly conducting under Trinity IEDC.
