This eminent college has witnessed me as a Student, a Professor and a Head of the Department in the past. Now as Principal of this great college, I take great pride and delight in welcoming you and sharing certain thoughts with you all.
Established primarily to educate the sons and daughters of the English officials and students of aristocratic families, Presidency College today caters to the educational needs of the downtrodden and the underprivileged sections of the society as per the noble Education Policy of the Government of Tamilnadu, while constantly adapting itself to face the challenges in the field of collegiate education.
With 26 academic departments as well as a General Library and Physical Education Department, our college takes on the great responsibility of moulding the minds of students and leading them in the right direction in order to make them the future architects of India. To extend educational oppurtunities for the hearing impaired, the College offers two degree courses(Viz. B.C.A., B.Com.) with specially trained teachers.
I would like to bring to your kind notice that we are taking every step to raise the standard of our students’ knowledge to the international level by taking inspiration from our former students, Nobel Laureates like Sir C.V.Raman and Prof. S.Chandrasekhar as well as Abel Laureate Prof. S.R.S.Varadhan. I am certain that with the help and services of highly knowledgeable, committed and sincere teaching faculty of this college, we would definitely reach our goals and fulfil our dreams.
