India has become a major tourist attraction for foreigners and the Travel and Tourism Sector is growing fast. To cater to the demands of tourists, a number of star hotels have come up in all major cities and towns as well as in reputed tourist centers. Considering the factors such as fast growth of the tourism sector in India, the great demand for professionals in the field of Hotel Management and catering services and the lack of institutions in South India offering AICTE approved 4-year degree courses in this field, the Technical Education Trust of the Diocese of Palai decided to establish such an institution. Accordingly, St. Joseph’s Institute of Hotel Management and Catering Technology, Palai was established in 2010.
The four year Bachelor Degree in Hotel Management (BHM) Degree course is being conducted in collaboration with leading hotels like Oberoi, Marriott International, The Taj, Zuri, CGH Earth, Ramada, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Club Mahindra, Radisson, K.L.R, Owakwood, The Paul, Avenue Regent, Olive Down Town, Leela, Ravis, Arte Central, Marriot, Lemontree, Trident, The PGS Vedanta, The Panoramic Getaway, etc.
The Institute provides an environment conducive to learning and achieving the academic and professional aspirations of the students. We aim to achieve 100 % results in examination and 100 % placement to all who acquire the minimum qualification stipulated by the Industry. Employment opportunities for graduates of these courses are available in Star Hotels, Cruise liners, Airlines, Railways, National and International Event Management, Multi-national Companies and Hospitals. Countries like Canada, Australia, Switzerland, Dubai, Kuwait, Qatar, etc., are places of tremendous opportunities for these students.
We are committed to preserving the eco-system and living in harmony with Nature. The institute maintains a green and absolutely clean campus. SJIHMCT follows a strategic planning approach to development insisting on continuous improvement at all levels. The admission will be conducted in May/June every year.
Initially the BHM programmes started with an approved intake of 60 which was enhanced as 90 from 2014.
