aims towards capacity building and building scientific temper. We meet
the needs of todays' Indian women to meet aspiration of women of

expected that students have preparedness to keep pace with courses and
assessments. Internal assessment is continuous and integral to the system.
Large amount of practical component will provide adequate skill set and
consolidation of theoretical concepts. This makes teaching & learning process
in College enjoyable and everlasting.

culturally rooted and contemporary. The programmes are scientifically planned
which include education in textile technology, food processing, metabolism,
environment, sustainable technologies, media technologies, food safety, health
