It was in 1999 that Kodava Education Society (KES) was formed under the able leadership of Dr. M.M. Chengappa, and took the first step in establishing Coorg Institute of Technology (CIT) in Ponnampet, Coorg (Kodagu). In the ensuing years the engineering college has made steady progress, and is now recognized as one of the best centres of technical education in this region.
It is a matter of great pride for the members of KES and the management to see students graduating from CIT being placed in well-known companies, Defence Services and UPSC. With the training imparted during their stay in CIT, our alumni are proving their worth to the organizations they are employed in. They are not only carving bright careers for themselves but are also enhancing the image of their alma-mater.
Students who opt for their technical education in CIT get to enjoy the wonderful environment of Coorg which has emerged as one of the popular holiday destinations in the country. The sprawling campus is located amidst picturesque surroundings, and the serene atmosphere is most suitable for academic pursuit.
One of the objectives of starting CIT was to provide high quality technical education at affordable costs to students hailing from Coorg. The management is very happy that this aim has been fulfilled to a large extent. We now have nearly 50% of our students’ strength from Coorg.
I would like to take this opportunity to appeal to Kodavas all over the world to come forward and lend their support to KES so that we could bring about further improvements in the campus. One of our immediate requirements is construction of an auditorium. Kodavas can help, and be a part of this endeavour, by taking up any one of the following memberships in KES:
A) Regular Member ... Rs. 10,000=00
B) Patron Member ... Rs. 1,00,000=00
C) Donor Member ... Rs. 2,50,000=00
In the near future we have plans to add some more engineering courses, and also start post-graduation programmes. With the active participation of members, academic and non academic staff, students and alumni, we are confident that CIT will scale greater heights in the years to come.
I extend my warm greetings to all the visitors to this website.
