“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”
-Nelson Mandela

Heartiest welcome to academic year 2023-2024 As you know, our college has been gaining new heights, while still being firmly grounded to its origin. Just like the culture, our college has also evolved through the time. Since, higher education is experiencing significant changes; we have been proactive in picking these signals to ensure that, our endeavours make an impact in developing our learners. Our college has many firsts to its credit especially; to start new programmes at under-graduate, post-graduate and research levels. Along with innovation towards bringing out new academic programmes, we have taken a serious look to excel in curricular, co-curricular, extra-curricular, and extension activities such as cultural, sports, NCC, NSS and Avishkar Research activities which are the integral facets of experiential learning and process of overall development of learners.

Our vision is, ‘Aiming for the best through amalgamation of attitude and acumen’. To achieve this, our philosophy has been to focus on knowledge dissemination, application and opportunity to excel by utilizing and directing the potential of our learners. Our vision, mission, objectives and core values lie in the heart of our stakeholders, who are always working for development of the college.

Our ability to think differently and create new paths instead of taking the routine route has paid rich dividends. The journey, we completed in the line has not gone unnoticed. NAAC conferred on us a prestigious ‘A+’ grade in Reaccreditation (Third Cycle-CGPA 3.61), University Grants Commission awarded us, a ‘College with Potential for Excellence’ status twice and University of Mumbai adjudged us a ‘Best College Award’. Recently, University Grants Commission has granted the Graded Autonomous Status to our college along with ₹ 5 Crore grant under RUSA by the Central Government of India. Under autonomy, we have designed the curricula as per the needs of industry. We have also planned to set up an Incubation Centre. This will help the students to contribute in consultancy and entrepreurship to enhance employability skills of the students. As per the need of National Education Policy-2020, we have made whole campus WiFi enabled. We have digitalizes the system right from admission to the declaration of results. All these glorious achievements are possible only because of our hard working learners, dedicated faculty, sincere administrative and non-teaching staff, strong and supportive management and large reservoir of goodwill of our college in the society.

Implementation of credit, grading and semester system challenges the ability of learners to participate in learning process continuously and demands corresponding efforts from faculty and staff which we have imbibed in our working systems. In this brochure, we have highlighted some of the significant achievements, new initiatives undertaken, glimpses of our programmes and other aspects of teaching, learning and evaluation process of our college.
