A Brief History

Mr. I. Krishna Pillai, Founder and Chairman of Cape Group of Institutions is the Promoter and Managing Director of Cape Infrastructure. A civil engineer with over 20 years of rich entrepreneurial experience in the wind energy and Infrastructure sector, Mr. Pillai felt the need to make quality education affordable to the larger masses, which led to him establishing the Sri Vinayaga Educational Trust, which runs both Cape Institute of Technology since 2001 and Cape Polytechnic since 2007 For more than two decades, Cape has demonstrated excellence in imparting quality education by catering to the long-felt need for a world-class education centre in the southern tip of the country. India is changing and so is the world and Cape provides an exciting tower to view these changes.

Our ethos is inspired by the ancient spirit of “Vidhya Dhanam” or the Sharing of Knowledge. Cape, with its proficient staff and infrastructure has been providing a high standard of technical education and nurturing an array of skills in its students with the objective of enhancing the employability of the student community. Our Institutions foster strong values and ethics, a positive attitude to life and learning and a committed approach to the development of professional skills among the youth that would enable them to seek the best of the jobs in the market and grow with them.”
