Acharya Narendra Dev College, though a young college, has already made a name for itself as a Centre of excellence in education, research and professional development. This is borne out by the fact that last year we were listed among the top ten 'Science' colleges in Delhi, by the India Today Survey.
Acharya Narendra Dev College was established in 1991 as a constituent college of University of Delhi and is fully funded by Government of NCT, Delhi. The college is named after the great educationist and reformist of modern India, Acharya Narendra Deva. Over the years, the college has acquired repute for the quality of education imparted to the students, the discipline and dedication of the students and the faculty, the exposure and opportunities available for overall development of both faculty and students and the sense of social responsibility within its walls. Extra curricular activities like sports, theatre, debates, music, eco-club, NSS etc engage students when they are not in class.
On offer are Bachelor of Science programmes for pure and applied science streams such as Biomedical Sciences, Physics, Chemistry, Electronics, Computer Science, Botany and Zoology and B.Sc. in Physical Sciences and Life Sciences. It is the first college of the University to introduce the B.Sc. Honours Biomedical Sciences and the only one to run B.Sc. General in Sericulture (later B.Sc. Programme in Applied Life Science - the course has been discontinued from 2010 onwards). In addition to the science courses, the college offers Honours in Mathematics and Commerce. Students can also enroll for the Postgraduate Degree of University of Delhi in Chemistry and Mathematics. It also offers Post Graduate Diploma Course in Computer Application (PGDCA) of the University of Delhi and part-time certificate and diploma courses in foreign languages - French, German, Spanish and Russian. Besides, the Add-on course ECPDT also enriches the students' personality and provide them learning opportunities.
Students rush to this college because of the reputation we have built about the quality of our teaching, the laboratories and other facilities that are state-of-the-art and amongst the best in the University. The library is extensive and serves as good support for the teaching-learning process. The college is also known for being a pioneer within the University in 'FOSS and OER' - paradigms that provide great learning and sharing opportunities and promote collaboration with people anywhere and everywhere in the world (through www).
Besides catering to students in Delhi, and South Delhi in particular, we have a large number of students who come from diverse parts of the country. The college has a prime location on the new 'Central Secretariat-Badarpur' metro route. For students in Faridabad Acharya Narendra Dev College is an obvious choice.
