History of the House:
The Mission of Don Bosco at Thirukazhukundram was initiated by Fr.Augustine Nathan who began his ministry in the area as the first parish priest of the new parish bifurcated from the Oragadam parish on June 29th 2001. In 2002, he began a boarding with 20 boys who were residing with the parish priest which evolved
into an established boarding home with 45 students (in 2006), 65 (in 2007), 75 (2008). The boys were initially attending the Government Higher Secondary School as they hailed from economically very poor background and were mostly either orphans or semi-orphans who lacked proper opportunity for study. Just after
the tsunami disaster, through a JDW project, Non-formal Technical Institute was established in 2006 as a response to the need for trained technical man power raised by the industries that dot the area. Thus trades such as Computer,
Carpentry, Two Wheeler Mechanics in 2006; Handicrafts, Computer, Electrician,Nursing in 2007; Welding, Electrician, A/C Mechanics and Refrigeration & tailoring in 2008 were added to the portfolio besides imparting communication skills to them. About 250 students were trained in these years.

It was on 31st December 2008, that a formal application was submitted to the AICTE for approval of a Polytechnic College. It was approved on 24th August 2009 and on 31st August 2009, the college began functioning by offering Diploma programmes in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical & Electronics Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering & Computer Science Engineering.
