The Hindustan Group of Institutions was founded in 1966 by our founder and Chairman, Late Dr.K.C.G.Verghese. In the Sixties, our Chairman had realized the need for an institution that offers non-formal technical education. The establishment of Hindustan Engineering Training Centre (HETC) helped in the evolution of Hindustan Institute of Engineering Technology (HIET) which met this need. This educationist, industrialist and pioneer of the concept of non-formal technical education in Chennai (Madras) headed several other institutions. These institutions aim at imparting quality education in the fields of engineering, aviation, architecture, law, applied sciences and management.
