A group of alumni had this brainwave and foresight to strengthen the bond between alumni, not just in Chennai, but also among those spread over the country and overseas. The Alumni Club was thus born in 1993 with just a few chairs and tables. In just over a decade, it has grown into a sprawling facility with restaurants, sports complex, auditoriums, library and guest rooms. To a casual visitor it might seem to be brick and mortar... but beneath it lies the truth... the camaraderie and unity among the alumni of the four prestigious constituent colleges of Anna University.
The College of Engineering, Guindy, the oldest technical institutions of India, came up on May 17, 1794 as a Survey school with just eight boys in a building near Fort St. George during the British regime. The East India Company established this Survey School to train military personnel and surveyors. This grew to a Civil Engineering School in 1858 and later on to a Civil Engineering College in 1859. In 1862, the Civil Engineering College was elevated to the status of an Engineering College. This was followed by Alagappa Chettiar College of Technology (1944), Madras Institute of Technology (1949) and Architecture & Planning (1957). In 1978 it was established as Anna University, as a unitary type of university, integrating the four technical institutions.
The cross section of members represents diversity - across years and disciplines; educators and past pupils. The Members are from the University, service and industry; academicians, professionals and entrepreneurs.
The Club brings together the alumni of the prestigious constituent colleges of Anna University - the College of Engineering (Guindy), AC College of Technology, Madras Institute of Technology and School of Architecture & Planning.
