The main objective is to foster quality technical and higher education, research and training for students of rural areas and inculcate a sense of discipline and dedication amongst the youth and mould them into talented and skilled engineers. Thus it enables them to delve deep into the aspects of modern technology.

No account of the history can be complete without remembering the pioneering work of our FOUNDER CHAIRMAN Dr.A.SHANMUGASUNDARAM. It is the philanthropy of our Founder Chairman that has made this College - a seat of Social Reform movements, Cultural Renaissance and Intellectual Awakening for the young men and women in this part of the country.
