A Brief History

Recognizing its academic contributions, the University of Madras conferred the autonomous status on the postgraduate courses of MSW (Social Work) and M.Sc. (Mathematics) from the academic year 1987-88. Subsequently, in the year 1988-89, autonomous status was conferred on the postgraduate course of M.A. (Economics) and on all the undergraduate courses. Meanwhile the Evening College affiliated to Thiruvalluvar University, Vellore, was functioning in the non-autonomous mode. The College received the approval from AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) to commence MCA programme on self-financing basis from the academic year 1998-99. In the same year, the College was accredited for the first time by NAAC with Four Stars. In 2000, the College initiated evening study centres for the poor students in different villages around Tirupattur. The economically poor students were chosen to teach in these study centres and they were given work-scholarships. The golden jubilee of the College was celebrated in 2001 and a memorial building was opened to accommodate additional departments which were started. In 2003, the Madras University was bifurcated and Sacred Heart College came under the Thiruvalluvar University. In the same year, Amalgam hostel was started to accommodate the post graduate girl students in the campus. In 2006, NAAC reaccredited the College with ‘A’ Grade. ‘Guezou Hostel’ for men was inaugurated to accommodate the increasing number of men students. In 2007 Autonomous Status was conferred on to the entire College and the College opened itself to admit girl students in UG programmes. In the very next year we introduced Choice Based Credit System (CBCS). Besides many Undergraduate and postgraduate programmes from the Thiruvalluvar University, the AICTE approved MBA programme. In 2012, the College focused itself on research and a research centre was created and it was named as Abraham Panampara Research Centre (APRC). In 2013, the College was once again accredited by NAAC (3rd Cycle) with ‘A’ Grade. From the year 2015, digitalization of administration began and it is very successful mainly due to the in-house development of softwares. The year 2016 saw a new entrance and a well furnished new building (Bicentenary Building) to accommodate more number of departments. In the same year restructuring of all the courses were done after a long process of consultation and academic audit of all departments. In 2017, the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India has ranked our College as 95th College in India. Over these years the College included additional degree courses and diploma courses to provide quality education to more young people. As we see the College undertook a forward march and never turned back. We continue to march together with our staff and students towards excellence.
