PACE Education group was founded in the year 1999 by Dr P.A. Ibrahim Haji by forming a trust, namely, P.A. Educational Trust. The first venture was P.A.College of Engineering (PACE) in Mangalore with 4 branches of engineering having strength of 240 students. Today, the campus has 2.61 million sq. ft. land and we have 6 branches of engineering, 4 branches in M.Tech, 5 branches in research programs and 5 branches in diploma engineering. We also offer 5 branches in undergraduate business degrees along with 2 post graduate degrees. P.A College of engineering is affiliated to the Visvesraya Technological University (VTU), Belgaum and is approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi, recognised by the Government of Karnataka, accredited by the National board of accreditation (NBA) and certified to ISO 9001-2008. The institution also has 2 Post Graduate Courses in Business Management apart from Undergraduate courses. Engineering Polytechnic is also a big attraction of this institution. The total campus strength is about 3500 students.
Our education group is dedicated to promote an effective learning environment that encourages excellence and diversity in thoughts and endeavour. In 2001, the group opened India International School in Kuwait with CBSE Indian Curriculum (KG to 12th) and has strength of 2500 students today.
Our venture into UAE started in Sharjah, namely, Gulf Asian English School from KG to 12th having 5400 students on the roll. The schools reputation for academics and co-curricular activities has established the image of PACE education in U.A.E. The latest CBSE School is at Muweilah, Sharjah,which commenced in 2011 and today boasts of over a 6200 student population with state of the art infrastructure.
Further, we have established RIMS International School at Kannur, Kerala, India with an investment of about US$ 5 Million, the group holding majority stake. Work is in progress for a Girls Residential School, namely, PACE GIRLS ACADEMY, at Manjeri, Kerala, India.
We propose to have many more modern educational institutions in view of the high demand from parents and the respect and reputation our institutions gained over the years. Though we deliver high standards of education, we have nominal fee structures which benefit the medium and lower income group.
Firmly founded on the British curriculum but inclusive of the best an international education has to offer, Pace Education aim is to help equip our young people with the tools to function and excel in our increasingly globalised word at university and beyond. Tools to investigate, learn, cooperate and communicate skills and ideas to others. The need to develop pupils as knowledgeable, globally aware, compassionate and effective individuals is greater than ever and our focus is therefore to ensure that the pupil experience at Pace Education is geared towards providing such opportunities in all contexts.
We have 1,200 teaching staff; we have above 500 non teaching staff and over 20,000 students from 25 nationalities. We assure to build institutions that would enhance the prestige of education around the world.
