Annamacharya Group of Institutions
Centres for Excellence in Engaged Education
Annamacharya Educational Trust was founded in the year 1997 by C.Gangi Reddy that offers quality-driven education to the rural youth. The rural area is affluent in talent, but for the dearth of educational facilities. This talent has to be channelized for the prosperity for the society and growth of the country in large.
With this notion, The Founder and Honorary Secretary, Mr. Gangi Reddy established the first engineering college under the Trust, Annamacharya Institute of Technology and Sciences near Tallapaka, birth place of the renowned saint-poet Sri Annamacharya, to enable the rural students of the region to experience engineering education amidst state-of-the-art infrastructural facilities, enjoying the innovative teaching-learning process.
Subsequently, he established three engineering institutions at Hyderabad, Tirupati and Kadapa. These colleges help the engineering graduates reach sophisticated educational and professional level by developing their pertinent interpersonal skills, helping them to discover their individual niche, and connecting them with career assignments they are truly passionate about. The institutions named after the Pada Kavitha Pitamaha Sri Annamacharya, thoroughly acclaimed by the stakeholders for their unswerving determination to provide unparalleled quality education in their most advanced infrastructural facilities.
The engineering colleges founded by Annamacharya Educational Trust are on par with the premier institutions in the state in terms of ambience, placements, and regulating the budding talents of young minds. The Group also offers education in the streams of engineering, management, pharmacy and teacher education.

Founder & Secretary's Message
It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you to Annamacharya Group of Institutions!
For more than two decades, we have established educational platforms for young scholars across Telangana and Andhra Pradesh regions. We are a group of individuals working together to mould the lives of rural children with education. We believe that education liberates people from the shackles of societal and economic inequities.
With an aim to endow children from rural background to develop innovative technical skills and become enlightened professionals, we have inaugurated institutes to cater to the educational needs of the local regions. All the children do not have the exclusive opportunity to study in so called “elite colleges” in urban areas. Our institutions endeavour to remove these barriers and provide accessible education with a comprehensive curriculum to compete in the fast-growing world.
Initially, when we had taken the step to achieve this vision, we managed to set up institutions only in local areas. With continuous and strenuous efforts of the members of the group, we have achieved to fulfil the mission to improve the quality of education significantly across both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh states.
We would like to thank all the students, parents, administration and our faculty members who supported us constantly to turn my dream a reality. We promise you that you will have an enlightening educational experience and achieve success in your career. We continue to strive to promote the best education in the country.
