The Thirunilam Educational Trust was registered in 2011. The Managing Trustee of the Thirunilam Educational Trust, the promoter of Toms College of Engineering for Startups, is the Director of Visveswaraya Institute of Engineering Technology (VIET), the No.1 Engineering Technology Institution in the country. Ever since its establishment in 1988, the Institution, a proprietary concern, was following the vision “Make your future bright as a Chartered Engineer” and was in the pursuit of bringing Engineering Technology to the doorstep of average students, who otherwise did not have the chance of pursuing a Graduation in the University education system. This enabled many a students to discover their full potential and equip themselves to be globally effective engineers. It is the first Institution in India, that computerized the Engineering Technology Education System, and is an ISO 9001: 2008 certified Institution. Higher employability of the students is the goal of Visveswaraya Institute and to its satisfaction it is worthwhile to note that most of the alumni have excelled in their chosen field. To name one or two: Mr. Bobby George was bestowed with the best Young faculty award by IIT Madras in 2013. Mr. James Wilson is a member in Mullaperiyar Cell of Govt. of Kerala.

Many other Post Graduates and Doctorate holders, who are the Alumni of this Institute, are in commanding positions of many organizations in India and abroad. VIET actually create a positive mentality in the mindset of students to acquire maximum knowledge and excel in the engineering field. Hence after the completion of AMIE through VIET, most of them go for higher studies with a good GATE score to still rise in their chosen profession.
