Technical Education and Research Institute was established as an appendage of Post-Graduate College, Ghazipur which has an illustrious history of nearly five decades. The college has been the linchpin of higher education in eastern Uttar Pradesh a region hitherto plagued by economic backwardness for several unfortunate reasons. All the adversities notwithstanding, the college has served as an academic womb for countless dignitaries who has embellished the intellectual environment in Indian and abroad. The college has been catering to the disparate academic needs of the society by offering a wide range of disciplines art, science, education, agricultural, science, music, environmental sciences, physical education etc at both graduate and post-graduate levels.
Establishment of TERI exemplifies constant urge of the Degree College Association to enrich its repertoire with the ever-changing demands of time. In1994, TERI was the first and only institute to offers MCA degree programme from Veer Bahadur Singh Purvanchal University, Jaunpur, and TERI also earned the unique distinction of being the first institute in Uttar Pradesh to offer MCA course apart from state-funded engineering colleges which were the only institutions allowed to run such programmes until 1994.
The Institute took a step ahead in 1998 by introducing the MBA Degree Programme also from Veer Bahadur Singh Purvanchal University, Jaunpur. After the enactment of the Uttar Pradesh Technical University, Lucknow act 2000, all technical courses running in various institutes of U.P. were affiliated to Uttar Pradesh Technical University located at I.E.T. Campus, Sitapur Road, Lucknow which is now known as Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam Technical University, Uttar Pradesh, Lucknow.
A further step towards backward integration of its course-max was taken in 2005 when graduate level degree courses of BBA and BCA were introduced. These courses are affiliated to Veer Bahadur Singh Purvanchal University, Jaunpur.
