Coimbatore has perhaps the highest concentration of colleges in the country. From those specialising in Arts and Sciences, to Engineering and Business administration, the choice of learning avenues for a student is plenty. Several colleges and business administration institutions have entered into strategic partnerships with universities from around the world and offer exchange study programmes. One of the reasons that several IT companies are looking at setting up shop in the city is because of the large talent pool that emerges from the colleges.
The industrial strength of the city has also given rise to the emergence of many polytechnic colleges. These institutions serve as a ready resource to meet the growing need for technical talent.
The city is home to 3 state owned universities: The TNAU (Tamilnadu Agricultural University), the Bharathiar University and the Anna University and 4 private deemed universities. Coimbatore has 2 medical colleges, more than 30 engineering colleges and a host of institutions that offer comprehensive paramedical learning programmes. Leading hospitals in the city run government certified nursing courses and the talent that graduates from these centres finds employment in premier health care centres around the world.
The TNAU (Tamilnadu Agricultural University) is located at Coimbatore and is a premier learning institution in India. The university has a large research centre and over 400 acres of farmland to help it innovate agricultural practices. The Coimbatore Forest College stands like a green belt amidst the growing heights of concrete within the city. The inception of the college here was a strategic move by the British during their reign and still serves as an ideal learning destination for forest officials.
