About Mohamed Sathak Trust

Mohamed Sathak Trust, a charitable and educational organization, was established on 26 October 1973 at Kilakarai, by the Philanthropic Mohamed Sathak Family of Kilakarai, Ramanathapuram District, Tamil Nadu, with the sole purpose of helping deprived people from rural and financially challenged backgrounds to obtain quality education.

The first self-financing engineering college in the country was established by the Trust in 1984 at Kilakarai, and from that day onwards the Trust has been contributing to providing quality education with academic excellence to meet the requirements of industries at national and international levels.

The trust has an impeccable track record of running quality educational institutions from the higher secondary level to the undergraduate and post-graduate levels in various disciplines such as Engineering Technology, Arts and Science, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Nursing, and Medical Sciences; It has 18 educational institutions at present in Kilakarai, Ramanathapuram and Chennai.

We believe that “God will not change the condition of a people until they try to change themselves”. We focus on doing the right things without any bias and with a charitable mind would strive to build an institution of academic excellence and help in building the nation.
