K L University, officially Koneru Lakshmaiah Education Foundation, formerly Koneru Lakshmaiah College of Engineering is a Deemed university located in the Guntur District of Andhra Pradesh, India. K L University consists of 11 academic departments, and six schools of excellence, with a strong emphasis on scientific and technological research.

Established in 1980, the college is located in a 50 Acre site abutting Buckingham Canal, about 8 km from Vijayawada in Guntur District. The college is recognized by All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi and accredited by the National Board of Accreditation. The college is certified by ISO 9001 - 2000.


The college was established in 1980 by the late Sri Koneru Lakshmaiah and Sri K.Satyanarayana at Vaddeswaram. The late Sri K.Lakshmaiah (graduate of BMS College of Engineering, Bangalore), realizing the scarcity of local engineers, came up with the idea of establishing an engineering college. The Secretary and Correspondent Sri K. Satyanarayana (also a graduate from BMS College of Engineering, Bangalore) has since taken over the reins as Chairman. One of the main objectives of establishing the Institute was to develop facilities for studies in a variety of specialized engineering and technological sciences. The need for establishing adequate facilities for postgraduate studies and research was kept uppermost in mind in the founding years. The college got 75% placements during 2003-2009.Once affiliated to Acharya Nagarjuna University, Guntur, the college was granted autonomy in 2006. It became a Deemed University in 2009, and is now known as Koneru Lakshmaiah Education Foundation.


The college started with four conventional disciplines in 1980. It now offers nine programmes in the undergraduate courses and five programmes in post-graduate courses {M.Sc Computer Science, MCA and M Tech}. KLU is the first engineering college in Andhra Pradesh to start an Industrial and Production Engineering branch in undergraduate courses and having NBA accreditation for Biotechnology. It has a plinth area of 38045 m². The college has three computer centers catering to the computing needs of the students and staff.


K L University's 50 acres (20 ha) campus is located 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) from Vijayawada, on the banks of Buckingham Canal of Krishna river. The built area is around 800,000 square feet (74,000 m2).
