Dear Students, Parents and all our Stake holders,
I welcome you all to College of Home Science, Nirmala Niketan.
It is an honor for me to lead such a vibrant college that offers immense opportunities, being the only Home Science College affiliated to University of Mumbai ,it attracts young girls from different strata of society to pursue a career in Home Science ,and boys to our Post Graduate programs .The courses being skill based ,allow students to become successful entrepreneurs even after completing their graduation .Those pursuing higher studies are much sought for in the industry, research organizations, by GOs, NGOs, academic institutions. Employers across the globe have always highly rated our students for their ethical, disciplined, confident and methodical approach to work, the credit for which largely goes to the value based, holistic education imparted by a team of experienced and dedicated teachers.
The goals of the college to prepare students for Life, Community service and Career are met by an all-round education ,that encompasses not only curricular aspects ,but co-curricular, extracurricular which match the needs of the job market globally .We have several Certificate add on and Value added courses which a large number of students pursue simultaneously with their degree. This helps them to sharpen their professional acumen. In addition we have built up a very strong Industry academia linkage, and have signed MOUs with industry and academic institutions.
We have a very strong Research culture and encourage our students to participate in inter collegiate ,inter university competitions, winning laurels for themselves and the college .The enthusiasm shown by our under graduates has prompted us to have our very own intercollegiate research festival AARYA for the F.Y. and S.Y. students which has been successfully initiated in 2019,our extension and outreach community programs ensures that every student is sensitized to the needs of society ,and the theoretical knowledge so acquired is made useful to help the community.
We have a safe social and physical environment that helps students and parents feel secure in seeking admission, at most times the demand for our courses far exceeds the intake capacity ,that tempts us to seek permission from the University to open up additional divisions under the unaided section.
I am proud to be part of a legacy of sustained academic excellence of over 60 years .The futuristic ,holistic vision of our founder Principal Ms Colette Galby, a French sister who chose to make India ,in particular Bombay her home has been today visualized with the college having grown exponentially in all spheres ,accredited with an A by NAAC in the third cycle in 2014, being put in the bracket of top 150 - 200 by NIRF , and on the brink of going through the reaccreditation for the 4th cycle in September 2019.
The success story of College of Home Science that is growing every year is possible, as we are ably supported by our caring, proactively involved management, teaching and non-teaching faculty, Alumni, Parents and all our well wishers
Dear students, as we complete 50 glorious years of getting affiliation to University of Mumbai for our degree programs, I welcome you all to this Temple of learning to join us in the journey of excellence.
