Anna University Chennai – Regional Office, Tiruchirappalli was formerly known as Anna University of Technology, Tiruchirappalli which is previously known as the School of Engineering and Technology of the Bharathidasan University, and later the Bharathidasan Institute of Technology (BIT). In December 2007, it was converted into an affiliating university, with almost all engineering colleges in the south district under its fold and absorbed all the government engineering colleges in Tamil Nadu as its constituent colleges. This includes five constituent engineering colleges, 64 Self-Financing Colleges, 10 MBA colleges, three MCA colleges and three colleges offering architecture.

On September 14, 2011 a bill was passed to merge back the universities.[4] However, as of February 2012, the separate universities are still operating.[5]
