Annai College of Arts & Science was established in the year 2001, by the K.K.O.Mohamed Ibrahim Educational and Charitable Trust, with student strength of mere 150 in 2001 and within a short span of 14 years, we are now 3600 students strong and a Leader among the colleges in the neighbourhood of Kumbakonam, Thanjavur District, TamilNadu. The college is situated in a village called Kovilacheri, 10 kms away from the main town, Kumbakonam, on the Kumbakonam-Chennai Highway.
The College not only focuses on the quality of education but also concentrates on the Moral Intelligence of the students. As a result of the parental approach by the faculty members towards the students, we could achieve both academic excellence and Value-driven student population, both in and out of the campus. Since it is a Muslim Minority Institution, they are also keen on educating the minority community to mainstream and strengthen the quality of our poly-cultural polity in the process. Our College is recognized by the Director of Collegiate Education, Government of TamiNadu and affiliated to Bharathidasan University, Tiruchirapalli. The College has already obtained approval under Section 2 (f) of the UGC Act and has applied for 12 (B) to the UGC.

The college was accorded Minority Status on 1st July 2009. Since majority of students are first graduate students and hail from rural background, many efforts have been taken to bring in external educational Trusts who support education for the economically challengedcommunity. The Trust focuses on the educational mission to empower countless people through education, especially the economically challenged sections of population and the Muslim Community in the process.
