societies of the region took an initiative for establishing an engineering educational institution. For this, a trust was formed and duly registered. The Trust comprises of leading duly

senior bureaucrats, management experts, peoples' representatives, and notable social workers. Day-to-day activities of the Institute are controlled and monitored by a board of trustees.
