On behalf of Agra College, Agra, I welcome you to the College website. Agra College, Agra is one the oldest institutions of Northern India, established in 1823; it has the privilege of producing stalwarts in almost all disciplines and all walks of life. In its glorious 190 years the college has delivered to the society and to the world of knowledge many scholars who have reached the pinnacle in their profession and in the society.
In the modern world, education means much more than merely acquiring bookish knowledge, rather it is acquisition of all round knowledge and skills, building character and improving employability of our young talent who are the torch bearers of the future. The strong values and traditions of Agra College enable our students to inherit a strong foundation to march ahead and contribute for a stronger and brighter India. Character development and leadership are just as important to us as academic results. Over the past academic years the College has developed and grown with an amazing pace in every conceivable area. New and innovative courses in Bio technology, Commerce and Journalism have been started. Also the introduction of Civil and Electrical branches at the under graduate level and the M. Tech course in the Faculty of Engineering and Technology indicate the commitment of the college to an expensive vision. It is no small achievement that the FET has become today the first choice of all aspirants for the B. Tech programme in the region. Catering to the need of the hour, the College has moved beyond its traditional mould by harnessing itself to the boons of the technological and digital revolution. The college has been wi-fi enabled, CCTV cameras and smart class rooms have been installed and laboratories have been upgraded with state of the art technology. Well equipped computer labs, the Central Instrumentation Laboratory, digitalized library are some of the high tech infrastructural facilities being provided. These create a conducive climate wherein students and faculty can collectively engage in the process of teaching, learning and personality development.
Empowerment of students for their all round development through education is Agra College’s cherished motto. In a world of unequal and unjust society, Agra College prepares students as catalysts of social change in order to uplift the marginalized sections of society. It boasts of possessing a progressive and innovative outlook with traditional roots. Challenges and Opportunities are two sides of the same coin. Modern education, curriculum development and teaching methodologies have to keep pace with the demands of the modern society. We all have to ensure that there is no stone left unturned to equip the student of today to face the challenges of life. The faculty at the College and the non teaching staff have been providing unstinted support to fulfil this vision.
I feel privileged of being the Principal of such an illustrious institution dedicated to the economic, social and political upliftment of India. I wish you all the best for achieving greater success and scaling newer heights in your education and life ahead.
