Loyola Institute of Technology and Science, Thovalai (LITES) is an engineering college which is situated in Thovalai, Tamil Nadu, India in the foothills of the Western Ghats. The southern districts namely Thirunelveli, Tuticorin and Kanyakumari (where "Loyola Institute of Technology and Science (LITES)" is established) was once referred as the Oxford of the South, since large number of meritorious graduates came out of this place and served our motherland with grace and dedication. The Society of Jesus (SJ-Jesuits) have established many schools and colleges (like St. Xavier's College, Palayamkottai, St. Joseph's College, Trichy, Loyola College, Chennai and so on) and gave quality education in Tamil Nadu. They run these educational establishments strictly on professional and ethical basis. Their services are highly regarded and appreciated. They have produced many eminent leaders to serve our great nation including our beloved former President, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. Now, they have promised to guide and counsel us. Hence a set of alumni and beneficiaries of Jesuit institutions have assembled together and registered the Loyola Educational Trust and establishing the Loyola Institute of Technology and Science with the AICTE approval in May 2008.

With the main vision of empowering the youth, LITES moves ahead on its mission of developing a world class Bio-Medical Technology Centre. The basic infrastructure is built to meet the requirements of youth development. LITES is very popular for sports and cultural activities. Many athletes are shaped, formed and developed in LITES who are performing very well in university as well as National Events.

Now LITES is merged with the Jesuits institutions to implement its ambitious plan of becoming one of the best institutes of the world.
