About Thangal Kunju Musaliar College of Engineering, [TKMCE] Kollam

In 1956 the TKM College Trust was founded by Late Janab Thangal Kunju Musaliar, which marked an epoch-making event in the educational history of Kerala in general and the Travancore area in particular. Mr Thangal Kunju Musaliar was a great visionary, educationist and philanthropist who walked ahead of his time. He was very much concerned about the various sections of the society who were educationally and culturally backward in general and particularly the members of the Muslim community who were backward in education and without proper and adequate facilities for education. Though he had only primary education he was convinced of the fact that education is an essential input for any development and no progress can be achieved without proper and quality education. The long-cherished dream was fulfilled by the establishment of the TKM College of Engineering in the year 1958.

The aim and objectives of the TKM College Trust are to establish educational institutions to serve the community and enhance the quality of life. These institutions will endeavour to rise to the level of generator and disseminator of quality knowledge and to prepare the future generations to face the warp and the weft of the challenges in life. TKM College of Engineering Admission can be proceded from registration on the official website of the college or by offline mode registration forms can be received from the counter.
