Acharya Narendra Dev College, New Delhi was established in the year 1991, Acharya Narendra Dev College, New Delhi is affiliated to University of Delhi
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 this session 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, three Add-on courses also enrich 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. In August 1992, the college moved to its current premises in Govindpuri, Kalkaji, which had just been vacated by Shaheed Bhagat Singh College and started with B.Sc (Hons) Electronics and B.Sc General Computer Science. Later we added B.Sc (Hons) in Physics and Chemistry in 1993, Botany, Zoology and Mathematics in 1994, B.Sc General 'B' group and B.Sc General Sericulture in 1995 and PGDCA in 1996.
Just before the end of the decade B.Sc Hons Computer Science and B.C.A were started (1997) which soon metamorphed into two very popular courses ( despite being 4-year courses) - Bachelors in Information Technology and B. Information Science in 1998. Due to a UGC directive these courses had to be scrapped across the University and B. Sc (Hons) Computer Science was reintroduced in 2001. In 1999, the college started a radically different course - B.Sc Biomedical Sciences in which admission was through an entrance examination. The Foreign Language Centre was established in 2003 with certificate courses in French, Spanish, German and Russian. Two years later the higher module of Diploma in foreign languages was also established. Students could register for M.Sc Mathematics and M.Sc Chemistry from 1997 and 2000, respectively.
The year 2005 saw a major overhaul in the the erstwhile B.Sc General courses - these were renamed B. Sc Programmes with radical changes in the curriculum as well as syllabi making them 'much in demand'. The 4 streams were B,Sc Programme in Life Sciences, Applied Life Sciences, Physical Sciences and Applied Physical sciences.
The new session starting July 2010 will see another landmark change in the University of Delhi. With all the undergraduate courses under the Faculties of Science as well as Applied Science being shifted under the Semester Scheme and with new syllabi, Acharya Narendra Dev College, being primarily a Science college will see major overhaul in its systems. We are gearing up for this radical change with a lot of hard work and some anxiety. At present we have 1263 students, not counting the language courses, and this number is increasing every year!! We have also about 200 students registered for the foreign language courses.
