The HKBK Group of Institutions began with the aim of providing educational opportunities to the deserving and under-privileged. Its first step towards the goal of imparting quality education was HKBK College of Engineering. The Karnataka State Muslim Federation (KSMF) helped establish this Engineering College in 1997 under the leadership of C.M. Ibrahim, former Union Minister.
KSMF is a prominent state-level organization which addresses the concerns and issues of the minorities in the state. With an active presence in all districts of Karnataka, KSMF recognized the need to provide opportunities for technical education to the under-privileged. Thus HKBK College of Engineering was born.
Following this, KSMF expanded its foray in the educational sphere by establishing HKBK Business Academy and HKBK Degree College for undergraduate courses. Under the banner of HKBK, these colleges seek to provide students with a strong foundation of education and life skills.
The HKBK Group of Institutions is named after the 12 th Century Chishti Saint, Hazrat Khwaja Khuthubuddin Bakhtiar Kaki. Chishtiya, an order of Sufism, celebrates the principles of tolerance and services to mankind among others. Reflecting these principles, the HKBK Group of Institutions aims to educate young minds and deserving people in the hope of a better tomorrow for themselves and humanity at large.
