The last five decades have been witnessing a remarkable and glorious transformation in the educational upbringing of the Muslims in Kerala, traditionally the most backward community in education. The driving force behind this envious achievement has been the committed and tiring toil of THE MUSLIM EDUCATIONAL SOCIETY (MES).
The movement started under the great leadership of late Dr. P.K.Abdul Gafoor in 1964 at Calicut, wholeheartedly supported by a large number of professionals and businessmen and in a short span of time this great movement had its branches spread to all districts in Kerala. As on today, it is the largest Educational organization in our nation with a strength of more than 20,000 active members, 85,000 students and staff members numbering 15000. It not only has Units in each and every District of Kerala, but also has stretched to neighbouring states as well to the Middle East countries.

IN THE FIELD OF PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION
In 1994, it was the setting up of the MES College of Engineering at Kuttippuram in Malappuram District, the first self-financing college in the private sector in Kerala, that kick started an historic revolution that was to follow in the state to promote education to the deprived class and MES has a real right and reason to be proud of this committed initiative to fulfill its mission. How aggressive and consistent was the growth that followed in the educational scenario of the state since then is part of history now . And in 2003, there emerged the MES flagship institution – the MES Academy of Medical Sciences, which now is comprising a Super specialty Post graduate Medical College, Dental College, College of Nursing, School of Nursing and institute of Para-medical sciences. The latest additions to the MES panel of professional institutions are the MES Institute of Technology and Management, Chathannur, Kollam, MES College of Engineering and Technology, Kunnukara, Ernakulam and MES College of Architecture, Kakkodi, Kozhikode.
Our Aided Post Graduate Colleges are accredited by the NAAC. All our colleges, including unaided self-financing colleges have consistently been achieving high percentage of results in the university examinations with many a student securing meritorious ranks.
