The prominence of technology and industry in the region naturally led to the inception of technical institutions in the city. Many of these technical institutions are today recognised the world over.
By the turn of the 20~ century, several land owned families began founding schools to impart education to the children of their employees. The inception of colleges and industrial training institutions was a natural progression.
Today, Coimbatore has one of the highest number of educational institutions and draws a large number of expatriates, foreigners and students from other states to its institutions of learning.
With the arrival of the IT industry, several MNCs have chosen Coimbatore to become their internal learning centres as it offers the institutions a ready repository of talent.
