G. Pulla Reddy Engineering College, the Pride of Kurnool town, was the brainchild of Sri. G. Pulla Reddy, the renowned philanthropist and a great humanist. His love for education, though he himself is poorly educated by modern standards, and care for his native district manifested themselves in the form of this college. The College was inaugurated by the world famous ophthalmologist Padma Bhushan Dr. P. Siva Reddy on 22nd February, 1985. This is approved by AICTE Delhi. G. Pulla Reddy Engineering College has made rapid progress and development, not only in terms of increase in staff strength and students intake, but also in updating the infrastructure in the campus to cater to the increasing and changing needs of a modern technical institute.
