Rev. Fr. Hans Roever, a German Missionary, Civil Engineer by Profession, dedicated himself to spread the gospel message. He came to India during World War II, landed at Perambalur on 1st Feb 1947 to preach the teachings of Jesus Christ. He instituted a small orphanage of 50 Children drawn from different villages. Then the strength of orphan children grew up to 300. Many of his illustrious students are achieving/obtaining very high positions today. This explains what a great man he was!

After his demise in 1969, his followers formed the trust under the able Chairmanship of Dr K. VARADHARAAJEN, B.A., B.L., at the very outset, the Trust ventured into starting of High School in the year 1981. A number of educational and social welfare institutions camp up to meet the genuine needs of the society.


Chairman's Message

For over 50 years, St.John Sangam Trust has been deeply involved in social development and empowerment through education and social welfare activities in Perambalur district in Tamil Nadu, South India. In memory of our Reverend Fr. Hans Roever, and his vision, the trust is engaged in uplifting the economically backward district of Perambalur through affordable education for poor students and through social welfare and development activities for poor families under the auspices of Roever Educational and Social Developmental Institutions. Roever is now synonymous with quality education and sustainable social empowerment.

 While our belief in universal education is slowly empowering rural communities throughout many generations, I would like to highlight the immediate needs of the socially and developmentally challenged rural poor, who have no community or government support.

Roever Social Development unit focuses on the young and the old, physically and mentally challenged, women and children, healthy and sick people in and around Perambalur. Its main goal is to provide for and empower those who are not able to take care of themselves. 

Dr K.Varadharaajen, B.A., B.L.,
Chairman & Managing Trustee,
St.John Sangam Trust, Perambalur
Our staff provides a whole range of services such as home for orphans, physically and visually challenged, short – stay home for women and girls, old age home, a rehabilitation centre for alcohol and drug addicts and disability rehabilitation centre.

Principal message

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to take an initial peek into the heart that beats behind the appealing façade of Roever College of Engineering & Technology. I thank you for your interest in this exceptional institution which has recorded 10 years of constant development, in the course of which it has accomplished much, making it one of the colleges recognized for its excellence and therefore, much sought after by the fresh applicants. The Roever College of Engineering & Technology tradition happily brings together sound academic achievement with an extensive, vibrant co-curricular programme that includes sports, and leadership training programmes. Our mission is to inculcate the love of knowledge in our students and, for this; we aim to develop the skills and demeanour of lifelong ‘learning,’ essential for making responsible global citizens. This will make them immensely capable of facing the future with resilience and optimism. On the deeper level, we try to instil the values of respect and trust in relationships that are the foundation of real success.

At RCET then, we believe that ‘education’ is a wholesome, holistic exercise and as such we strive to give a whole new meaning to the word. Coupling this basic premise with the idea of a sense of belonging to one family—the Roevers family—we look at ourselves as ‘care-givers.’ We care for the mind—ours is a sterling academic institution; we care for the person—the accent is on the all-round development of personality. I wish you the best in the process of seeking to become a part of this family
