ICIT Buildings


‘Mahaganitham’  is   a  sculpture commemorating the  huge Mahagony tree that stood in front of the Cutcherry Malika. This huge tree,  like other trees on the campus, played a vital role in the making of  the  unique heritage of U.C.College.

The tree was struck by lightning in 2002. The remnants of this great tree stand as ‘Mahaganitham’ near its original position.

‘Mahaganitham’ represents the historic Mahagony tree and ‘Ganitham’, Mathematics, the queen of all sciences.  Aesthetic concepts like Golden ratio, Fibonacci series etc. are used in the design. More than a thousand mathematical entities and geometrical shapes are engraved in the sculpture. The five Platonic bodies - tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron -  are present in it. Moreover, an attempt has been  made to impart  certain ethical messages through different mathematical models. An old iron bell, used during the early period of the college, is a part of the sculpture. It reminds us to make the best use of precious opportunities available on the campus. The copper and brass frame strengthens the structure (our relationships too!).

The work was crafted by the artist Mr. PV. Ramachandran and the mathematical part was conceived by Dr. Sunny Kuriakose, Department of Mathematics.

The building took its shape as an extension of the new Psychology Block built in 1994. Prof. C. P. Mathew, one of the founders of the college, was the bursar when the construction of the New Hostel was started in 1926. The hostel started functioning in 1928 with 46 students. Mr. Gopalan Achari was instrumental in planning most of our old building including the College chapel, and Biology Block and even Skinner Hostel.‘Each piece of wood being carved  with  deep faith in God’, as Gopalan Achari believes. This block is now a full fledged wing of the College including the department of Psychology, Zoology, Womens’ Cell, Computer Centre and other facilities.
