Srimad Andavan Arts & Science College

HH decided that it is necessary to impart career based education to BC/OBC/MBC/SC/ST students from rural & semi urban areas & hence Srimad Andavan Arts & Science College was founded in Srirangam in 1996.

Srirangam is one of the oldest towns known to civilisation BUT till date, this is the only Arts & Science College. This was inaugurated by the then President Dr Shankar Dayal Sharma {a SishyA of HH Srimad Andavan}.

This has 200,000 Sq.Ft of infrastructure; classrooms, laboratories, library, staff rooms etc., with an outlay of over Rs. 15.00 Crores so far (from internal accruals & by voluntary donations of sishyas and admirers) till date. The college is affiliated to the Bharathidasan University. There are 1600+ students, 99 Faculty and 40 administrative staff. There are 13 Post Graduate Courses including MCA, 9 Under Graduate Courses in Bio Sciences, Management Sciences and IT & many Diploma/Certificate courses.

HH Srimad Andavan is developing this as an Institution of Excellence to become a “Deemed to be University” under the UGC Act & Rules by 2015/16. Admissions are open to all students without any sectarian consideration of caste and creed.

We have been accredited as an “A” Grade College {Institutional Score – 85-90%} by NAAC {National Assessment & Accreditation Council}, an autonomous body functioning under the aegis of the UGC {University Grants Commission}. This accreditation means an institutional score of 85-90% and is valid for a period of 5 years from 22-03-2007 till 21-03-2012.

The College – via its Parent Trust, Sri Ranganatha Paduka Vidyalaya Trust – is recognised as a SIRO or Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation. Formulation of Ayurvedic Drugs, கஷாயம் etc., are conducted for Industry – Academy collaboration.

HH has also purchased nearly 6 hectares of prime land near Samayapuram {15 kms from the existing College Premises} for future expansion of the College. The construction work is in progress for a College of Education in this site.
