About College

In recognition of the requirement of the needs of professional education in this rural part of the country and in order to share the burden of the government, the T.M.A.E.’ society has established Shri.Chandrashekhara Swamiji College of Pharmacy in the year 1979 with a D. Pharm. course with intake of 30 students. B.Pharm. course was started in the very next year i.e. in 1980, (This was the fourth oldest institution in the state of Karnataka) and subsequently M.Pharm. course in two specializations (Pharmacology and Pharm. Chemistry) was introduced in 1996 and were affiliated to Gulbarga University and later on to Rajiv Gandhi University of health sciences, Bangalore. It is note worthy to mention that this institution was established when there was no/scanty awareness about this course in the nation The institution is recognized by the Pharmacy council of India and All India Council for technical
education, New Delhi and more so the college has carved a niche of its own at the national and international level. In addition to this we can see that, students from nuke and corner of the country are studying here and a miniature India in this small rural place, i.e. a symbol of national integration. Because of this institution many stalwarts in the field of Pharmacy have visited and appreciated the efforts of the management and staff in uplifting and popularizing pharmacy education from this rural base.


S.C.S. College of Pharmacy was established with a mission i.e. -Catering the Pharmaceutical Education from a rural base to rural mass with a global perspective-. The college has progressed well in achieving the mission by not only admitting the selected students from the rural background but also in appointing many faculty member with rural background. Even the teaching methodology was adapted to the needs of the students from rural background. The research projects that are undertaken were also mostly from the rural, native and traditional remedies. In addition by introducing extracurricular activities the institution has contributed a lot not only in academic but also personality development of the student. To add feather to the cap of the institution, many ranks were secured earlier in the university exams. In the academic year 2003 - 04 also our institution has bagged gold medals both in B. Pharm. and M.Pharm. courses in university examinations conducted by RGUHS, Bangalore. Both the rank holders are students with rural background and competed with the students of metropolitan background. This is sufficient to prove that the institution is progressing in right path for achieving its mission.
