Dr. RM. Alagappa Chettiar was a visionary who believed that education was an absolute necessity for a human being to become productive, wholesome and humane. Responding to the then Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru’s call to industrialists to set up educational institutions, he was quick to set up a cluster of educational institutions which today form the core of the Alagappa University in Karaikudi.

A host of eminent personalities from Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, to Presidents of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad and Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, to industrialists and royalty such as the Mysore Maharajah, have graced the inauguration of various Alagappa Institutions with their presence.

AIT, located in the heart of the Alagappa Schools campus in Chennai was officially inaugurated on 19th November, 1999 by the then Education Minister of Tamil Nadu Prof. Anbazhagan and has since emerged as a Centre of Excellence in education.


AIIT has been designed to provide an academic ambience, conducive for learning. The Institute in Chennai and Karaikudi has been equipped with state of the art hardware and software, which clearly distinguish it from the rest of such centers in the city. Our faculty members have been carefully selected based on their academic background and teaching ability. We have nurtured and developed the organization with a strong determination, character, integrity, work ethics and commitment.


During our relatively short history, the philosophy of concentrating on quality and commitment has resulted in an impressive record, culminating in success one after the other. The enrollment of students has increased consistently year by year for courses designed and developed by the Institute. Apart from this, we have been successful in imparting computer education to the students and staff of the Alagappa Schools in Chennai and Karaikudi.

Personal Contact Program (PCP) classes conducted on behalf of universities such as Alagappa University, Pondicherry University, Tamilnadu Open University, Anna University and Sikkim Manipal University have been a resounding success and as a result we have been awarded with further such affiliations with other universities.

We have been recognized as an examination center for Pondicherry University, Alagappa University, Madras University, Manipal University (Distance Education & Medical and Engineering Entrance exams), and Annamalai University and we have been conducting the respective university exams for the past 5 years.
