Our Founder

Late Haji E M Abdul Salam [1942 -2008] was born at Veykkal, Kollam district in an agrarian family. He started his humble beginning as an Arabic teacher in lower primary school in govt service and pursued his studies and completed his university education in securing second rank in MA Arabic in the year 1974 from Kerala University. His vision to provide university education to the minorities and socially backward classes in his home town was materialised in the year 2003 by starting PMSA Pookoya Thangal Memorial Arts and Science College at Kadakkal under the banner of Villoor Educational and Charitable Trust.

He christened the institution to commemorate Pookoya Thangal, the great orator and eminent scholar who dedicated his entire life to augment marginised masses of Malabar. He believed that the name is most appropriate for this institution which is also established with the vision to uplift the poor and down trodden masses with quality education.

Late Mr. Haseen A Salam [1973-2017] was born as elder son to Haji E.M Abdul Salam and Haja Nazeera Beevi at Kadakkal. He started his schooling in NSS public school, TVM and completed his degree from BR SHETTY college of Engineering. He was pursuing his career as software programmer in ARAMCO, KSA; due to the sad demise of our founder Chairman he was responsible in the day to day activities of the college with vision of fulfilling his father’s dreams. During his tenure he uplifted the college to a new dimension and enhancement in overall infrastructure development.





I am honored to lead the PMSA College as it’s Principal. The College is the dream project of Late Haji. E.M. Abdul Salam which has come into a reality with the formation of the College on 23rd Sep 2003 with a motto “Excellence in Action”.

Service to the society, I believe, is through empowering the student community of the PMSA College, which is around 450 in all modes of education.

The students of the PMSA College are provided with all amenities for carrying out their activities more efficiently. Focus will be on Self Help Group and Entrepreneurship Program so as to make the education meaningful and purposeful for the students’ community hailing from Kollam and Thiruvananthapuam Districts.

The Faculty Members of the PMSA College are given training on Soft Skill Programes by the Skill Development Centre and training on Spoken English through the Dept. of English. The trained teachers will act as anchors and multipliers in their respective Departments.

Access to Information Communication Technology by students will be enhanced which will result on high level of employment. All these efforts are made to enhance the quality of academic ambience and to improve the Gross Enrollment Ratio in these two districts. This will provide affordable and equitable opportunities to the unprivileged and the first generation learners.

As the Principal of the PMSA College, I assure a transparent administration which will support the academic, research, consultancy and extension activities of the College. The synergistic and orchestrated efforts will benefit all stakeholders viz. the students, the teachers, the administrative staff and the society. All these efforts, I am confident, will result in the PMSA College gaining the status of “College with Potential for Excellence” in a short span of time.

Best wishes.
