Dr. K. M. Venkataramana founded Sri Raghavendra Educational Institutions Society in 1992. A visionary, humanist, above all an educationist, Dr. K. M. Venkataramana is dedicated to the cause of education with a vision of excellence through renowned educational institutions, infrastructure and faculty. He led this institution to become very strong in technical education and research. Sri Krishna Institute of Technology is a nurturing ground for evolving minds. SKIT has a holistic approach and up-to-date teaching aids to ensure that education empowers young minds to excel in their chosen field.
Mrs. Sumitra Venkataramana is the inspiration behind Sri Krishna Institute of Technology. Her passion for entrepreneurship is matched by her belief that ordinary people are capable of doing extraordinary things, when organized into highly charged teams. She takes a deep interest in the education field, she understood the need for a world-class destination for learning in the Chimney Hills area. Thus, she set up SKIT as a solid foundation for young minds to develop and grow.
In today's changing times, education is ideal and very challenging for the students. I feel that under the tutelage of a group of talented as well as dedicated teachers who are constantly innovating, SKIT will work towards empowering its students to achieve high standards in both the prescribed core curriculum and in many Co-curricular activities. We hope that their involvement and enjoyment of both academia and activity will help them to become inventive young people ready to carve their niche in the years ahead. My best wishes to all the SKITians.
