The curriculum at Munnar Catering College is designed to give students a chance to express themselves; to help them understand social and moral values by promoting co-education and to promote practical not just theoretical education through Industry Visits and Internships. Our teaching sessions are not confined to the four walls of a classroom. With classes on the banks of the lake or in the shade of the mountains, the close association with nature makes Munnar Catering College truly unique.
Munnar, the most genteel of Kerala hill stations carries the foot prints of early British settlers who discovered and tamed the hostile terrain till then untrodden by man. It is not difficult to understand why the British chose this unspoilt, clean, green hill station with its cool climate as their summer capital. Calm and quiet, it is far away from the bustle of the city. Rolling tea plantations, misty mountains, crystalline springs, low flying clouds and silky grasslands make Munnar an ideal location for a professional residential educational institution. Munnar Catering College is established by Thachankary Foundation, a trust registered in the state of Kerala with a vision of giving a new dimension to Hospitality education, that no one has ever experienced before. The Management is determined in maintaining an excellent academic ambience, discipline and environment, in a campus ideal for an educational institution of excellence.

By installing an ATM/POS machine in the college premises, individual Smart Card is provided for each student for all their payments in the campus to avoid unnecessary spending.

College campus is a place to find valuable friendship and to cherish unforgettable moments. We, here at MCC strongly condemn any kind of ragging practices. Our students welcome the fresher's with flowers and advices and they do not believe in violence or unhealthy practices. Our faculty members impart good values with education and that is what set MCC apart.
Parental encouragement and support in the academic and personal success of students is very important during the period of campus life as it is a transition stage with more independence and freedom. The role of the parent or the guardian as a caretaker and a coach may change but their opinion matters much to their child though they may be miles away from their home. Their opinion matters to us as well and we greatly encourage and value their relationship with the college.
We always expect the advices and encouragement of the parents to their wards in achieving excellence in education by strictly following the guidelines, systems and practices being followed in the campus.
