T.K.M. Institute of Technology - TKMIT Kollam - TKMIT
T.K.M. Institute of Technology is the latest institute to be established by the T.K.M. College Trust and is located on a verdant 25-acre campus known as Musaliar Hills at Karuvelil, alongside the TKM Institute of Management. The campus is about 23 km from Kollam City and about 3 km from Cheerankavu junction on NH 208, the Kollam - Madurai National Highway. The T.K.M. Institute of Technology started functioning in the year 2002 and has the approval of the AICTE. It is affiliated to the Cochin University of Science and Technology. The Institute now offers B-Tech courses in six disciplines with an intake of 60 students in each discipline. The branches of study offered now are Electronics & Communication Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Information Technology, Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering, Electronics & Biomedical Engineering and Food Technology. The idyllic surroundings, away from the hum and bustle of the city, provide the right ambience for learning. The buildings have been designed on the concept that each department will have a separate two-storied building to house its own classrooms, staff rooms and laboratories- a concept much appreciated by many experts in education. The Institute has state-of-the-art facilities, modern well equipped laboratories, computer centers with internet connectivity, a large, well stocked and automated library, extensive playgrounds and student amenities, convenient hostels and transportation facilities from Kollam and Kottarakkara. Other facilities that are provided include all weather bituminous roads, perennial protected water supply, captive electricity generation to meet the needs of the entire campus and Edusat connectivity that give students the opportunity to participate in interactive programmes conducted by experts related to their field of specialization. Programmes directed towards soft skills and personality developments are a regular feature of the training schedule.
