Science Association

Ever since B.Sc course was introduced in the college, the Science Association has been functioning wherein students from B.Sc and the Faculty get involved in the works of Physics Forum, Chemistry Forum and Mathematics Forum come under one umbrella in order to conduct competitions, industrial visits, seminars & talks  in order for the students to improve their communication skills, soft skills and subject knowledge.

The association is also responsible for formation and training of participation groups among students that take part in various inter-collegiate, university, state and national level competitions.

The association also involves students and conducts various outreach and education programs carried out by our students for the students of various schools and junior colleges nearby.

Following are the examples of events that are regularly conducted for and by the students:
