Word From Principal

At the outset I extend a warm welcome to you.

Value education is the foundation of modern education and is a unique feature of Somaiya Vidyavihar institutions. K. J. Somaiya College of Science and Commerce is one of the institutions of Somaiya Vidyavihar.

The College was formerly known as K. J. Somaiya College of Arts and Science. In 1972 it was bifurcated, one of them being, K. J. Somaiya college of Science. The Commerce Faculty was introduced in 1986 and the College was then rechristened as K. J. Somaiya College of Science and Commerce.

The College acquired a vibrant atmosphere due to co-curricular and extension activities. The Girls’ NCC Unit has brought laurels in the form of the Vice- Chancellor’s banner for three years. The NSS Unit has built a strong bond through community service in the areas of health, crises preparedness, gender sensitization, and building of life-skills, environmental enrichment and


Sharing of resources and innovative practices with the sister institutions has created a synergistic relationship and imparted impetus for further growth.

Globalisation demands a new dimension to our approach to education. We at our college have recognized the need for a globally relevant education.

During the year ,2010-2011,efforts were directed to earn Autonomous status for the college ; subsequently the University of Mumbai vide notification No. Aff/Recog.1/914 of 2012 dated 22 nd October 2012 Conferred Autonomous Status to the college in 2012.

Under autonomy, changes were made in the existing syllabi which are in tune with the changing business, industrial and social needs. Furthermore, the designed curricula are relevant to the local needs and demands. The learning methodologies such as project based learning, experiential learning, Flip class learning are used.

In the words of Swami Vivekananda “ We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellectual expanded and by which one can stand on one’s own feet.”

We believe that each and every student has a gift to share and we work hard to unlock their highest potential.We aim to create a safe, nurturing yet challenging environment that is built on values, culture and positive relationships which will lead to emotional, social and academic development of the student.

I wish you all wonderful years ahead.
