Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam Technological University (Initially Kerala Technological University) is a university established by Government of Kerala. The broad objective of the University is to coordinate, supervise, regulate, guide and provide leadership in all aspects of technological and engineering education and research in Kerala State.
The University has its headquarters in Thiruvananthapuram and its jurisdictional authority extends to the whole of Kerala State. The University has been established both as a teaching and affiliation university. Engineering colleges may be affiliated as a regular college, a constituent college, an autonomous college, or as a college with academic autonomy.Kerala  Technological  University  is formulated   to   unify   the   technical education  system  in  the  State  and  cater  to the  aspirations  of every  Malayalee to have world class education.  Unlike the traditional  Universities, KTU will be on an e-platform with maximum possible use of e-governance for administration, affiliation, conduct of examination etc. which  will provide transparency and good governance.
Kera la cannot boast of any institution  of .its own which  is  having a ranking within  50 in the country.  KTU has to provide an ecosystem where the best educated youth of the  state can reach  his/her maximum  potential.   I   stress the  necessity  to develop  increasingly  refined  skills  which  is  the  need  of the  hour.  By  smoothly integrating   the   technological   and    creative   skills   of   students   to   solve   the contemporary problems, the KTU can kick-start a new culture, which contributes to increased knowledge, wealth and employment.The scheme  and syllabus  put forth  by the KTU is giving a ray of hope for the new  generation.  We  need  to  empower  the  youth  with  skill  and  knowledge  that promote meaningful  employment.  I  urge you to grow as a responsible citizen giving something to the society and nation. I  welcome all the students joining in the colleges

affiliated to KTU and wish a bright academic future
