Prof. K.R. Sundararajan, one of the eminent educationists of South India, established Indian Institute of Engineering Technology (IIET) in the year 1947 when there were only a few Engineering colleges in the state and young aspirants could not find opportunities to become engineers. Prof. KRS guided them to fulfill their dreams to become full-fledged engineers through the AMIE program. In his last years, Prof. KRS had a dream of starting a full-blown Engineering college to give quality education in various branches of the engineering. His dream became a reality when Meenakshi Sundararajan Engineering College started functioning in July 2001. Presently MSEC offers six under-graduates programme in Mechanical, Civil, Computer Science, Information Technology, Electronics and Communication and Electrical and Electronics Engineering and a Post-graduate programme in Construction Engineering and Managements. The college is consistently among the top ten and twice has been ranked as the top institution among the various affiliated colleges of the Anna University.
