Inspiring excellence, nurturing talent

KLE Technological University (KLE Tech) has its roots in one of the premier engineering institutions of Karnataka, B. V. Bhoomaraddi College of Engineering and Technology (BVB), a prestigious engineering college in Hubballi. The founding organization KLE Society, Belgaum, established BVB College in 1947 to create an institution that would lay the foundation of modern engineering education in the northern region of Karnataka.

Over time, it gained tremendous credibility with the industries and employers and emerged as a brand to reckon with. The Alumni of the Institute have done exceedingly well in all spheres of life at both national and international levels and brought name and fame to themselves and their alma mater.

To maintain and enhance its relevance in meeting global economies’ ever-changing demands, the BVB college, under the leadership of Dr. Prabhakar Kore, undertook a strategic initiative to transform itself into a University of National Distinction.





The rich heritage of BVB College as one of the best engineering colleges in India, combined with the brand equity of the KLE Society, are the starting points for KLE Technological University to hold a unique position of pride in the technical education system of India.
