INTRODUCTION




The T.K.M. College of Arts & Science was established by the visionary philanthropist Janab Thangal Kunju Musaliar. The college was declared open by Prof. Samuel Mathai, Vice-Chancellor, University of Kerala, on 24th June 1965.
On its early days the student strength was hardly 500, with a faculty of 15 supported by 10 non-teaching Staff. The College now offers undergraduate course in Islamic History, English Language and Literature, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Commerce and PG course in Mathematics, Chemistry and Commerce. The student strength has shot up to more than 4,000 and the faculty number about 120 and the non-teaching staff more than 75.
The college has been included under the U.G.C.Scheme since 1986. The NCC and Adult Education Units of the college have won many accolades for their services. A hostel for girls was completed in 1996. Right from its inception, the T.K.M.College of Arts and Science has earned and zealously guarded an enviable reputation for discipline and academic excellence.
he T K M College of Arts & Science, Kollam, today is an acknowledged premier institution in the field, has been accredited as a B+ institution by the NAAC . The prestige it commands today in the academic community comes as no surprise when one traces its illustrious beginnings.
Thangal Kunju Musaliar, our Founder, was the rising star in the field of export business in post-independence India. He was a legend in his own lifetime, blessed with the twin gifts of business acumen and a pioneering spirit. Challenges were what he loved and lived for, and his conquests in the business field and his vast business empire (he had the distinction of being the single largest employer in the world at the time.) has given him immense satisfaction.
It was then, in the late 1950’s, that his attention turned to the field of education. With characteristic foresight and perspicacity, he saw that higher education was the key that opened doors of opportunity in the modern world, particularly for the educationally backward communities. 1956 saw the establishment of the TKM Educational Trust, beachhead in the battle to empower the student with knowledge. TKM College of Engineering, the first such aided college in the private sector, came into being in 1958 as a result of the Founder’s persistent labours. The TKMCAS opened its portals to the student community in 1965, the college being declared open on 24th June, 1965, by Prof. Samuel Mathai, the then Vice-Chancellor, University of Kerala. Unfortunately though the college was robbed of the loving patronage of the Founder on account of his sad demise, the TKMCAS, true to the vision of its founder, soon grew into an able sibling of an already famous Engineering college.

The 1970’s was an important decade for the College, with the college being upgraded and Degree courses introduced-Botany in 1977, Chemistry and Commerce in 1978 and 1979 respectively. In 1980 Mathematics, Physics and Islamic History departments were added. The 1980’s were the years when the college became a post-graduate institution, with the introduction of M.Com in 1981. The degree course in Zoology was also introduced in this year. By now the institution had grown by leaps and bounds and it was offering some very spirited competition to the established colleges in Kollam.

The college was a force to reckon with by the time she came to celebrate her Silver Jubilee in 1990. Student strength had shot up to more than 4,000 and staff numbered more. English Language and Literature was offered from 1992. English PG was introduced in - and Biochemistry in 2001. Today the college offers courses in virtually all faculties, having - degree and - PG courses. Our academic achievements had qualified the college to be included under the UGC scheme from 1986 onwards. Over the years the college has chalked up many Ranks and an enviable position in the honor rolls of the University of Kerala.
The able stewardship of Shri Shahal Hassan Musaliar, our Trust President, and the dedication of the TKM Trust have seen to it that the college lacked in nothing. The efforts taken to upgrade the infrastructural facilities and the meticulous attention brought to bear on academic matters paid off handsomely when the college accredited as a B+ institution by the NAAC in 2 - . This was a fitting accolade to an institution bearing the name of Shri Musaliar, a man who had settled for nothing less than excellence.
