10 Mar


Thiuvalluvar Arts and Science College was established by Shri Jayaganapathy Educational Trust in the year 1996. The Trust sought Perrmission from the Government of TamilNAdu tostart a self financing college in the name of great sage Thiruvalluvar at Kurinjipadi, one of the most backward areas in Cuddalore District.

Twenty Two years ago many people of this area scorned the idea of starting a college socially and educationally backward area like kurinjipadi. Many people thought that there was a little scope for academic growth and prosperity. The able and efficient management obtained permission from the Government of the TamilNadu, vide G.O M.S no 549, and subsequently got affiliation to the University of Madras in the academic year 1997-98. Since 2003 onwards, the college has been affiliated to Thiruvalluvar University, Vellore. The College in the year 1997 started functioning with the following courses: B.Sc Computer Science, B.Sc Bio-Chemistry, B.Sc Microbiology, BBA and B.Com.

Now in 2021, the College has grown with academic students numbering 1500 and 74 teaching and 36 non-teaching staff members. In the academic year 2000-2001 affiliation has been granted by university of Madras to start  two additional courses: i) BCA ii)B.Sc Electronics.

And in the following year 2001-2002, this Institution has been upgraded as a PG Institution by obtaining affiliation to the following courses: i) M.Sc Information Technology ii) M.Com  iii)M.Sc Applied Microbiology(2002-2003)  iv) M.A English (2010-2011) v)M.Sc Mathematics(2016-2017).
