The South Indian Vaaniar Educational Trust owes its birth to the far-sighted vision and vigorous initiative of late Hon’ble Justice Thiru.S.A.Ayyasami Chettiar, M.A., B.L., who raised donations from the generous-hearted and public-spirited members of the Vaaniar Community. He created the above charitable organization in 1960. The First Finance Minister of Independent India, Hon’ble Thiru.R.K.Shanmugham Chettiar was the Secretary of the SIVE Trust. The primary aim of the Trust has always been to promote education, an investment for national development through the available human resources. To this end, the Trust initially extended its financial assistance to the meritorious but needy students in the form of scholarships. This induced many of the youngsters of the Vaaniar Community to pursue higher studies in college. The message of the Trust becoming loud and clear more and more donors of the community came forward to offer their contributions to augment the resources of the Trust. The then Government of Tamil Nadu assigned to the Trust a site of 28 acres at a nominal cost. S.I.V.E.T. College came into being at Gowrivakkam in July 1966 in a modestly constructed but adequately equipped building.
The College gaining its strength and popularity paved way for the Trust to venture in getting the institution upgraded into a Degree College. University of Madras, within whose jurisdiction the College comes, granted affiliation to B.A. (History) and B.Sc (Mathematics) courses, in 1971 and thus a created landmark in the history of the College. There has been no looking back and the institution further registered significant progress in receiving affiliations from the University of Madras for more major courses at the under-graduate level viz., Economics, Commerce, Physics, Chemistry, Zoology and Corporate Secretary ship.
At present, the S.I.V.E.T. College has more than 3000 students on its rolls. The infrastructural facilities are being augmented on a phased basis. During the academic year 92-93, the college started the Evening College wing with B.Sc. Computer Science Course and now it has got expanded with a huge intake of students.
