In its existence of 25 years, Indian Academy Degree College- Autonomous has grown from strength to strength consistently and has turned out to be an autonomous institution from 2016. In spite of the challenging and changing educational environment, our college has withstood the test of time in offering nine undergraduate programmes in science, in addition to Commerce, Computer-Science, Management and Humanities.
The college has created a research culture among the students and staff by nurturing scientific temperament among the student and creating opportunities for innovation and creativity especially in the field of Life Sciences. It has created its own institutional research policy by offering seed grant money to faculty members to carry out pilot studies & minor research projects. The science departments now regularly apply for KSCST student’s projects and carry out successfully. The Star College Programme Sponsored by the Department of Biotechnology, New Delhi, has created greater enthusiasm especially among the Undergraduate students who are involved in practical and curriculum related projects beyond classroom learning.
Funding from VGST, Government of Karnataka has enkindled the Spirit of innovation and inquisitive nature, creating an excellent ambience in the departments of Science. The incentives provided for publishing research articles in nationally and internationally reputed peer-reviewed journals, as well as UGC, recognised journals are a great impetus to the teaching fraternity.
