DAV College, Jalandhar. This is my college

Guys, I have completed my graduation from this college. But still, I must say its not the best. even not a good college I would say. The campus is nice but in respect of studies, I would recommend you to please look after some other better colleges. Guys, I have completed my graduation from this college. But still, I must say its not the best. even not a good college I would say. The campus is nice but in respect of studies, I would recommend you to please look after some other better colleges. Attendance system is bad. Many students don’t come college regularly and still they get permission to sit in the final exams. And even, teachers also don’t bother about it. Some of you may think that this is really cool. Ya, you feel free in such an environment but in respect of your career, it would not be a good choice. Also, placements provided for graduates are also not good in reality.

The college is just an average college for doing a B.Com degree. There is no appropriate infrastructure with old benches. The crowd is not that decent with students coming to stroll around and just pass their time . Also there are not appropriate opportunities for extracurricular activities.

It's my second year in day college and I have learned about a couple of things which I would've definitely missed if I didn't get admission in this college.I am pursuing boom and the last year has been both the time of good and bad experiences. The faculty over here is very good,the teachers are cooperative and very inspiring.I did have a bad experience in making new friends,but I guess that's a part of good life.But till now I have learned how important are our ethics,our hard work and our urge to learn and do something new.This college actually did make me fearless and I will be forever thankful for it.

College life was good because of crowd, friends and faculty. Infrastructure needs to be improved in areas like fans, projectors, furniture etc. Experienced faculty is good but not fresh faculty. Computer subjects are not taught well so improvements are required there.

About College:

The DAV College owes its origin to the Arya Samaj movement, started by Swami Dayanand Saraswati. He established the Dayanand Anglo- Vedic (DAV) Schools System back in 1886, in Lahore. The first DAV College came up in Jalandhar, in the year 1918. The DAV College Managing Committee (DAVMC) looks after the administration here. It is one of the largest educational groups in the country, managing multiple outfits, across the spectrum. The college is affiliated to the Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU), based in Amritsar. This ensures the approval of the UGC (University Grants Commission). The total campus of the DAV College in Jalandhar spans over a sprawling area worth eighty- eight acres of land in the state of Punjab. 

The college has also been accredited by the NAAC (National Assessments and Accreditation Council), earning an A grade rating in it. A separate IQAC (Internal Quality Assurance Cell) has been created to this end, to ensure that all the terms of the NAAC are complied with. An AQAR (Annual Quality Assurance Report) gets generated to quantify the results. The Jalandhar- based DAV College has also always believed in providing benefits to the broader society. The students here have likewise been instilled with such value. And that is why the students of this college have been active participants in government schemes such as the NSS (National Service Scheme) and the NCC (National Cadet Corps). 

Courses are run here at the DAV College Jalandhar, at both the UG as well as PG levels, plus some diploma programmes. Courses abound from across the streams. At the under- grad level, commerce and arts students may opt for a B. Com or a BA respectively. The professional courses of a BBA or BCA may also be availed. In addition, there is the increasingly popular choice of BJMC (Bachelors of Journalism and Mass Communication). Some of these courses may be taken up under an honours mode, while others could be on general mode. The maximum options abound here, for the science students. 

A BSc. has the options for the areas of Computer Science, Bio Technology, Information Technology and in Economics. There is also the unique course in Food Science and Technology. Two more innovative BSc. programmes may be availed, in the so- named BSc. in Medical or in Non- Medical. The BSc. Medical is primarily made up of the PCB specialization involving the subjects of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, while in the BSc. Non- Medical, Mathematics replaced Biology to make it a PCM combo. At the master’s stage, science students may go for an MSc. These may be availed for the areas of- Physics, Chemistry, Zoology, Mathematics, Computer Science and in Information Technology. 

Likewise, commerce students may opt for an M. Com. Humanities students too have a multitude of offers. The MA options exist for Hindi, History, Economics, English, Punjabi, Sanskrit and in Political Science. Beyond all this, there exist some diploma programmes. These are primarily meant for working professionals, or those unable to dedicate, full hours to academics. These diplomas are available at across the levels. The areas covered include Computer Applications, Web Designing and in Financial Services. Research has throughout played a key role in the growth and development of the DAV College in Jalandhar. For this purpose, the college undertakes several consulting assignments for industry partners. 

A lot of the funding for such assignments comes from industry or government bodies. Some of these key agencies include the likes of- DST (Department of Science and Technology), FIST (Fund for Improvement of Science and Technology Infrastructure), UGC, DAE (Department of Atomic Energy), BARC (Bhabha Atomic Research Centre) and the DBT (Department of Bio Technology). Some such assignments have even been undertaken by the students themselves. Several faculty members have even been published on respected journals and other publications.
