G.Pulla Reddy Engineering College - GPREC
G.Pulla Reddy Engineering College is the brainchild of Late Sri G.Pulla Reddy, (popularly known as Sweets Pulla Reddy in A.P.) the renowned philanthropist and a great humanist. Established in 1984-85, it is one of the earliest private engineering colleges in Andhra Pradesh state. GPREC has been functioning as an autonomous institution since 2006.
The college is being managed by G. Pulla Reddy Charities trust, Hyderabad. The trust was instituted by late Sri G.Pulla Reddy Garu in 1975 with the motto of rendering service to the society. The trust has established many educational institutions, hospitals, orphanages, respite homes and other social welfare organisations in various parts of Andhra Pradesh State. G.Narayanamma Institute of Technology & Science (GNITS) - Hyderabad, G.Pulla Reddy College of Pharmacy - Hyderabad, G.Pulla Reddy Dental College - Kurnool are some of the other institutions being managed by this trust.
G.Pulla Reddy Engineering College (Autonomous), the pride of Kurnool town is the brainchild of late Sri G. Pulla Reddy (10-01-1921 to 09-05-2007), the renowned philanthropist and humanist. His love for education and care for his native district manifested themselves in the form of this college.
The college was inaugurated by the world-famous ophthalmologist, Padma Bhushan, Dr.P. Siva Reddy on 22nd February 1985. Though started after the capitation fee era, the college had no teething troubles. With the munificent grants and pragmatic guidance of Sri. G.Pulla Reddy, the college has made a steady progress and has become a premier institute of technical education. Though the college is second to none in physical infrastructure and human resources, it is primarily known for its discipline and value system. Sri G.Pulla Reddy belonged to the school of thought and practice that believes that “virtue is its own reward” and this idea formed the basis for all activities on the campus. If his uncompromising insistence on quality in his pure ghee sweets business has made him the Sweets Legend and quality consultant to TTD in making the world famous Tirupati Laddu, his insistence on quality in education made GPREC the benchmark for technical education.
Though Sri. G.Pulla Reddy subsequently established several educational institutions of repute, GPREC has remained his “first love” and is the flagship organisation of all of them.
