About us

The IHRD established in the year 1987 had today grown to the stature of a grand body of 90 institutions including Colleges of Engineering, Model Polytechnics, Colleges of Applied Science, Technical Higher Secondary Schools and Regional Centers. The IHRD had forayed itself into most of the modern areas of education and training especially in the field of Computer and Electronics. Our College of Applied Science Thodupuzha is one among the 45 Colleges of Applied Science managed by IHRD. From the time of its establishment, the college has played a vital role in the higher education sector of Thodupuzha.

Considering the priorities set forth by the Government policy on Higher and Technical Education, sanction was accorded to establish new Colleges of Applied Science in the areas having little facilities for technical higher education. Institute of Human Resource Development (IHRD) being the pioneer educational agency providing high standards of technical education was entrusted with the job of establishing College of Applied Science at Thodupuzha.  The vision of the Government on strengthening the people of rural areas educationally thereby achieving their social and economic upliftment came true in this locality by the establishment of the College of Applied Science Thodupuzha in 2000.Sri. P J Joseph, Honourable Minister of  Education inaugurated the functioning of this college .

The college started functioning in a rental building of Pulimoottil complex, Mariyil Kalungu, which later in 2018 shifted to its own  building in the  land  allotted by the  Government of Kerala. It has ample strength of faculty and out-standing infrastructure. This is the leading college of Idukki District with UG (BSc Computer Science,BCom) & PG courses( MSc Computer Science, MCom). All departments have distinguished faculty, excellent lab & computational facilities. The college is committed to produce talented, tolerant and disciplined youth for emerging New India of the 21st century . Thus the goal of this college is to enhance its reputation by imparting knowledge in all walks of life to the students and make them creative in their endeavour to life.
