The V.L.B Janakiammal College of Engineering & Technology is a self-financing
engineering collegein located at Coimbatore, India.
The College was established by the V.L.B. Trust in the year 1985, a charitable organization founded by the great philanthropist and industrialist, the late Shri.V.L.BalaKrishna Naidu. Since its inception, it has been relentlessly serving the society by promoting engineering education to the common man and the rural masses.

It is a
private schoolaffiliated with Anna University. It offers both undergraduate & postgraduate education. It was awarded its accreditation status by the NBA (National Board of Accreditation) in 2004 for Mechanical, Electronics and Communication engineeringand Civil Engineering. Eventually Computer Science department withdrew from the application.
Undergraduate Engineering courses offered includes
Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical, Electronics and Communication engineering, Mechanical Engineering& Information Technology. In addition to this, the institution offers Post Graduate degrees such as Master of Computer Applications, Master of Business Administrationand Master of Engineering in Computer Science.
It is located in
Kovaipudur, within the Coimbatore border, about 30 km from Palakkad. Due to its proximity to Kerala and the relative lack of engineering colleges in Kerala, a considerable number of Malayalees study here. It is in tune with the number of Malayalee students in other Coimbatore colleges.
"To produce quality engineers and managers, infused with positive values and a spirit of continuous learning, by an education whose quality is assured by systematic monitoring and up-gradation of all aspects of teaching-learning process, continuous up-gradation of the human resources at all levels and regular updating of the infrastructural facilities".
