The college at Bodinayakanur in Theni district would commence operations from this academic year and admit 300 students across various streams of engineering, an official release here said.
Jayalalithaa has issued the administrative sanction in this regard, it said.
Funds would be utilised to develop the infrastructure facility of the college including setting up of laboratories, hostels and purchase of computers, among others, it added.
After unveiling the Vision Tamil Nadu 2023 document yesterday, Jayalalithaa had said one of the single most important resources for the success of achieving `Vision 2023`, was the availability of skilled manpower in the state.
