I am very happy to welcome you to the portal of Sahyadri Science College (Autonomous).
Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but may also be autodidactic. Education is not only the requirement of an individual but also of the institution, for setting goals and achieving excellence. To get educated, the institution should acquire skills and attitudes favorable for the education. It has to question itself, which is said to be the Socratic idea of education. To achieve the optimum results of its set goals the institution has to examine its ‘beliefs’, because knowledge begins and improves with a question mark.
Sahyadri Science College is one of the premier educational institutes in the Malnad area of South Karnataka and prestigious one too. The College was established in the year 1940 as an intermediate College by the erstwhile Mysore Government during the rule of His highness King Jayachamarajendra Wadeyar of Mysore. The College was upgraded to the First grade College level in the year 1956 and named as Government First Grade College. Influenced by the scenic landscape couched in the Sahyadri Hills, Dr. K.V. Puttappa (Kuvempu) the first recipient of Jnana Peeta award and then Vice Chancellor of Mysore University urged the Government to rename the College as Sahyadri College. Ever since its establishment, the College has seen a steady growth in strength as well as quality.
The students of this institute have reached great positions in the country and abroad. Some of the luminary students of the college include Prof. C.N.R Rao, Bharat Ratna and Padmabhushan awardee, Eminent Scientist & Former Director, IISc; Prof. U.R.

Sahyadri Science College (Autonomous) has completed six years after the first reaccreditation; it has been trying to establish its identity in this area as a premier institute of science education. In recent years, the college has shown tremendous development in imparting quality higher education and is committed to play the role of a center of excellence in teaching and promoting research in basic and applied sciences
With this background I feel that the students who joins this College will find it as a great opportunity to ignite their natural talent and to shape their career ambitions.
