It was a red letter day in the history of XIME when the foundation stone for the new campus of XIME was laid at Kinfra Park, Kochi on November 12, 2011. The Chief Minister unveiled the foundation stone along with a number of Ministers and distinguished guests. Many eminent persons from the industry and academia made the occasion memorable.
