Mr. Bashingam's dream was to serve society through education. Fuelled by this passion and with the support of his family members, he founded the Alpha Educational and Charitable Trust in 1992, with eminent persons from the field of education. His foray into the world of imparting education began with the setting up of the Alpha Matriculation Higher Secondary School. The Alpha Group soon grew to include a teacher training institute and a college of education.
Mr. Danathiyagou, Mr. V. Bashingam's son, continued in the footsteps of his father when he became the Director of Alpha Educational Institutions in the year 1999. Under his guidance,
the institution aimed to transform an individual into a complete personality with character and ability through academic excellence.
Mr. Danathiyagou's vision to give children a well-rounded education and an enriching experience led to the establishment of Alpha College of Engineering & Technology. Started in 2010, AceTech aims to provide the right environment, training and encouragement to students who can give wings to their potential and achieve success in the outside world.
