People‘s Education Trust®, Mandya, Karnataka State was established in the year 1962 by Sri.K.V.Shankaragowda, former Education Minister of Karnataka state government, an educationist, Politician, Artist, Entrepreneur and Social worker.
In the early 60‘s literary rate in and around Mandya District was at its lowest ebb and the facility for continuing education for both boys and girls was a distant dream. The Krishna Raja Sagar Dam built by the visionary King Nalvadi Krishna Raja Wodeyar and Sir M.Vishweshwaraiah had just provided the people of rural Mandya a chance to dream. The economic condition improved with the dam but the avenues towards education still remained stagnant. In such a scenario the Vision of the Founder was to provide quality education to the rural and backward community youth of Mandya and other neighboring Districts. Thus was born people‘s Education Trust. From a modest beginning the trust has expanded its activities in the Academic arena.
At present Dr.H.D.Chowdaiah, former M.L.A, M.L.C. and an eminent Educationist is the chairman of the Trust. P.E.S.College of Science, Arts and Commerce, a First Grade College was established in the year 1966, affiliated to the University of Mysore. According to the norms stipulated by the UGC, the first grade college established its independent identity in the year 2001.
