B. S. Abdur Rahman Crescent Institute of Science and Technology was founded by Tamil businessman and philanthropist B. S. Abdur Rahman in 1984 as Crescent Engineering College, a Muslim minority institution approved by the All India Council of Technical Education and affiliated to Madras University. The college was affiliated to Madras University until the year 2001.From 2002, many engineering colleges in the city of Chennai changed affiliations to Anna University. University of Madras became an umbrella university, exclusively for non-professional, Art & Sciences colleges that offer BSc & BCom degrees. Many colleges chose not to affiliate with any university and became deemed universities in their own right. Crescent Engineering College was affiliated to Anna University until 2008. It was elevated to deemed to be university status as B. S. Abdur Rahman Crescent University in December 2008. In 2017 it was renamed as B.S. Abdur Rahman Crescent Institute of Science and Technology following the UGC request to drop the “University” from the name.
