Nestled in the vast expanse of the agricultural lands of Kalitheerthal Kuppam on the Pondicherry-Villupuram main road, Manakula Vinayagar Institute of Technology is the 10th and the most recent edifice that spells modernity and technological advance even as a classically architecture temple of the elephant-faced GOD welcomes the entrant with the deity bestowing intelligence and supernatural powers upon those who worship him with closed palms and an open heart. Manakula Vinayagar Institute of Technology, with its motto, Educate, Empower and Excel, has risen to meet the ever increasing need for consummate technologists who would usher in a better tomorrow that would free people from the clutches of old world ideas. MIT is a self-financing technical institute started in 2008 by Sri Manakula Vinayagar Educational Trust with the aim to make state-of-the-art technology to the rural society and to open up career opportunities for the underprivileged youth in and around the vicinity. The college is approved by AICTE and affiliated to Pondicherry University. It provides an ambience of uncompromised innovation, excellence and quality. Its library houses over 5000 books and 50 journals and magazines for the benefit of the students.
