Welcome to an Institution dedicated to create tomorrow’s leaders and today’s pioneers. It is my pleasure to inform the prospective students about the facilities offered in the institution, this institution has excellent infrastructure and is equipped with the state of art machinery/equipment, computers etc. Highly qualified and dedicated faculties are handpicked/appointed who teach and mentor each student to make them leaders of tomorrow. The Institution is affiliated to VTU, Belagavi, recognized by AICTE, New Delhi, and approved by the Government of Karnataka. Coorg Institute of Technology is just 4 kms away from Ponnampet. It is well connected by road from Mysuru, Bengaluru, Mangaluru, Kannur, Thallessery etc. The institute has a vision to distinguish itself from several institutes in multiple ways from day one of its inception. The idea is to encourage and motivate students to come out with innovative ideas and guide them to develop on their own. The faculty team comprises of a good blend of corporate and academia. The institute would also like to encourage students to get best skills that would make them more suitable after their graduate programs by acquiring both soft skills and technical skills in different branches of Engineering.
