In the history of Karnataka, the name of late Sri Bhusanayana Mukundadas Sreenivasaiah (BMS) occupies a prominent place in the field of philanthropy. The Maharaja of Mysore honored him with the title of Raja Karya Prasaktha in 1946, when he opened the college. He had foreseen the urgent need for high quality technical education in India even before its independence. The ideals for which Sri B.M. Sreenivasaiah stood continue to inspire the inheritors of his legacy
After the death of Sri Sreenivasaiah, his son Sri B.S. Narayan took over the reigns of the college. Under his guidance the institution grew. He was also instrumental in initiating International Collaborative programmes such as cross-cultural programmes with the Melton Foundation and training foreign students under International Co-operation Division (ICD).

After the death of Sri B. S. Narayan in 1995, the government of Karnataka entrusted the reigns of B.M.S. Educational Trust to a new managing body consisting of a Chairman, Member Secretary and three trustees of repute in the fields of Judiciary (Chairman), Administration (Member Secretary, IAS cadre) and Education (Former Vice Chancellor, Director of Technical Education etc..
