Message from Principal
I am proud to state that University College of Science, Tumkur is the first college in Tumkur District to be accredited with “A” Grade by National Assessment and Accreditation Council, Bangalore. The pioneering college has the historical reputation of spreading science education in the region for the last seventy years. I am pleased to state that the college has been able to create a conducive atmosphere for learning by constantly engaging with students, parents and other stakeholders.
The role of teachers in catering to the educational requirements of the students is highly commendable. On the other hand, constant monitoring of progress of the students by mentors creates a sense of community in the college. Well-equipped laboratories and the library fulfills the curricular requirements of the student. Co-curricular activities like sports, N.S.S., N.C.C. Red cross, scouts and Guides attempt to bring out the latent talent, nourish and promote the personality development of the students. It is a matter of pride that teachers are highly qualified, proficient and each teacher is constantly engaged in research activities like undertaking projects, organizing and participation in workshops, seminars and conferences at national and international levels that inspire and encourage the students to engage in research. This has contributed to the reputed institution in becoming a centre for promoting science education.
I hope that the student –community shall take advantage of the benefits and encourage us to serve for the cause of Higher Education.
