The NMKRV College for Women established in 1973 and managed by the prestigious, Rashtreeya Shikshana Samiti Trust was granted autonomy by the UGC and approved by the Government of Karnataka on 1st September 2005. However, the college became autonomous from the academic year 2006.
The purpose of autonomy is to provide freedom for the institution, to design its own curriculum and evaluation system and to produce high quality graduates suitable to meet the current challenges of the industry and society. The syllabi are restructured and improved involving senior faculty of the institute, experts in various fields of specialisation and practicing professionals from industry. The revision is based on the feedback from the industry, employers, faculty, students and the stake holders of education.
A substantial qualitative development in the students' attitude, basic improvement in discipline, better student-staff interaction and higher employability of the graduates are some of the key aspects that the college has achieved.
