With great elation, I would like to highlight the accomplishments of our institution at present! Our college has secured A Grade with 3.35 scale in the IV cycle by the NAAC. Started in 1965 with a very few students, our college has grown with more than 3000 students with excellent infrastructure. Day after day, we have been working on the needs of the learners and we have inaugurated a new Chemistry lab, Incubation Centre. With great delight, I would like to inform you that our college has been nurturing Startups. HCIIC in collaboration with MHRD has initiated and some of our staff and students have incubated Startups inside our campus. Our students have participated and won in various competitions nationally and globally! Recently, our students from the Department of Physics have participated in Smart India Hackathon 2022 – Hardware Edition held in Ongole, Andhra Pradesh from 25th to 29th August, 2022.
