During the 90s, there was severe shortage in the State for higher education opportunities in professional programs.  To meet this need, Government of Kerala had established in 1999 the Co-operative Academy of Professional Education (CAPE) as an apex body that would organise and run new self-financing professional institutions in Engineering, Medicine and various allied disciplines, incorporating the state-of-the-art concepts and technology in these rapidly changing areas. 

CAPE is an autonomous Society registered under the Travancore-Cochin Literary, Scientific and Charitable Societies Act, 1955. The Hon'ble Chief Minister of Kerala, Shri.Oommen Chandy is the Ex-officio Chairman of the Society.  The Hon'ble Minister for Co-operation , Shri. C.N.Balakrishnan is the Ex-officio Vice Chairman of the Society and the Chairman of its Board of Governors.  The membership of the Society includes, amongst others, the Secretary to Government (Co-operation), Director of Technical Education, Director of Medical Education, Registrar of Co-operative Societies, Presidents of Kerala State and District Co-operative Banks, eminent experts in Technical and Medical Education and Industrialists.  The governance of the CAPE is vested with a seven member Executive Committee headed by the Hon'ble Minister for Co-operation & Devaswoms.
