In 1984, the founder chairman of the institute, Kalvivallal Sri. T. Kalasalingam, started the institute as an engineering college with the name of Arulmigu Kalasalingam College of Engineering through the Kalasalingam Anandam Ammal Charity trust. His philanthropic vision to promote the dry-tract of the Virudunagar district through education gradually materialized. The institute obtained Deemed to be University status in the year 2006 and named as Kalasalingam Academy of Research and Education (KARE). KARE is near the Thirumangalam-Kollam highway (NH 744) at a distance of 65 km from Madurai and 12 km from Srivilliputtur.

KARE spreads over 163 acres in the foothill of western-ghat with a built-up area of 21,59,274 square foot in a pleasant green eco-friendly campus with 30% greenery of its total area in the foothills of the Western Ghats. KARE offers 33 undergraduate, 31 postgraduate and 17 Ph.D. programs in all arts, science, management and technology domains. KARE is the first institution in India to offer B. Tech. for the Speech & Hearing Impaired Students (SHIP). A special B.Ed. (Hearing Impaired) program approved by the Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI) is offered. KARE also offers B.Voc. programs in 5 domains.

KARE was re-accredited by NAAC in 2015 with ‘A’ grade and CGPA of 3.11 out of 4. Six of undergraduate engineering programs namely Biotechnology, Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering were accredited by NBA under Tier–I category. KARE has participated in the NIRF ranking process from the beginning and ranked 96th in engineering category in the country recently. KARE has been ranked 25th among world universities in a rural set-up, 6th among Indian Universities in UI Green-Metric Ranking 2017. KARE established an International Research Center encompassing an Advanced Instrumentation Center to cater to the needs of researchers in the field of material science with high-end instruments worth more than Rs. 2 Crore with a research focus on composite materials, crystallography, solid state ionics including nanomaterials for energy and biological applications. Sponsored projects worth more than Rs. 3 Crore are ongoing in this center. KARE has impressive placement records with more than 138 companies visiting every year. About 47% of the faculty members are Ph.D. holders, and many of them are having doctoral or post-doctoral experiences abroad.


Kalasalingam Global Conference aims to bring together leading academicians, scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Sustainable Development. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Sustainable Development. The Conference will seek to provide intellectual guidance and scientific evidences to the challenges of sustainable development goals, promoting research and education to build a fair global community and more sustainable society.


Kalasalingam Global Conference KGC-2019 invites original articles from Scholars, Industralists, Faculty Members and Students for the International Conference on Sustainable Development, which will be held during 18-20 December 2019 at University Campus.
