During close association with the people and working with them in various program of community welfare and social service, it was being felt, since a long time by the members that there should be a standard life oriented centre of learning (LOCL) in all levels of educational streams for the students of present and coming generations and this centre should impart quality education and socially useful training at reasonable cost, in general academic plus various technical and professional courses; so that being passed out from the centre they may play their effective role as worthy citizen in the nation building process after being absorbed in the employments in various fields of the Government and private sectors at one hand and may live better life on the other.
This feeling and motivational idea inspired the members to establish an educational society titled “Mata Vaishno Devi Educational Society”. It was registered under the provision of “Socities Registration Act 1860 (Act No. 21 of yr 1860)” in the year 2003, with the object to open centre of learning of excellence in various educational streams.
By the name of Vaishno Group of Colleges (VGC), two colleges have been established viz.
1. Vaishno College of Education, and
2. Vaishno College of Engineering.
Vaishno College of Education was started in 2005 with B.Ed. course approved by NCTE & HP Government and Affiliated to HP University, Shimla. After a remarkable all round performance it was accorded permission to start M.Ed. course in the year 2008.
Vaishno College of Engineering was started in the year 2010 after getting approval from AICTE & HP Government and Affiliation from H.P.T.U for B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering and Electrical Engineering. The management of VGC worked aggressively to increase and upgrade the infrastructure due to which the sanctioned intake in the B.Tech courses increased with every passing year and in the year 2012, approval and affiliation for diploma and M.Tech courses was granted.
Both the colleges are having adequate infra- structure, material resources, fund and well qualified and experienced faculty. In the future, the objective is to open a series of institutions in other technical, professional and vocational courses.
