Salesians of Don Bosco came to Mampetta in the year 1989. They began the work for the youth of the locality by organizing a daily Youth Centre and giving tuition classes to the local children. Soon an Industrial Training Centre and a Computer Centre were begun offering various job oriented training programmes. The ITI got its approval from NCVT- Government of India in 1997. Plus two programme was started in 2005 imparting Higher Secondary Education to the aspiring and deserving students. Later on, to cater to more youth of the neighbourhood and to make them responsible citizens, the institution launched into the higher education sector. Don Bosco College received the official sanction from the Government of Kerala and approval from University of Calicut in 2013 and the first batch of students were enrolled in the same year itself.

Don Bosco College, Mampetta with its motto “Crescat et Floreat” (Grow and Glow) aims at imparting quality education to its beneficiaries. The College is part of the world wide Don Bosco Institutions and is affiliated to the University of Calicut, Kerala.
Education, especially Higher Education is not just for passing the University examinations, but for scoring high grades in life. It is a process of “Human Renaissance”, through which one is able to realize the depth of one’s innate being which will enable the individuals to become positive agents of social transformation. It is a sad fact that present scenario of education fails to achieve its real goal of personal and social transformation.
Don Bosco College, Mampetta spares no effort in imparting integrated education to the students keeping in mind this process of human renaissance through value education, personality development classes, self-discipline, social involvement and other such programmes. My wish and prayer is that all the students on the campus may realize the importance of this human renaissance and may respond positively to ensure a bright future for them and may contribute their share to build up a better society for all to live in peace and harmony.
