Late. P.K.Das
Whenever we hear the name Nehru College immediately the name of our Chairman late P.K.Das comes to our mind. Our Chairman’s name is synonymous with Nehru Colleges, which stand as Hall Mark of Quality in the field of Higher Education. Starting from scratch in 1968, this great leader spent each ounce of his energy and sweat to establish 20 prestigious institutions in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Through his hard toil, sweat, firm determination and strict self discipline, he established Nehru College of Aeronautics and Applied Sciences at Kuniamuthur, Coimbatore in 1968. Besides this college, he established four engineering colleges, one Arts & Science college, one Pharmacy College, one Aviation Institute and one Super Speciality Hospital and four Management Colleges in Tamil Nadu and Kerala. He was hardly 29 years of age in 1968, when he started his career as Academician at Coimbatore.
