It is a NAAC “A” accredited college which provides  Undergraduate and Postgraduate in various disciplines along with PhD in Home Science. 

Initially started by a registered Co-operative society way back in 1961, the college completed it’s 50 years of existence recently in the year 2011. During its yesteryears, the college only provided a 2-year Diploma Course in Home Science which was further followed by a 1-year Teacher Training Course in Home Science. During it’s developing years, the college changed hands from the Co-operative society to a Trust “Home Economics Education Society” with Mrs Rameshwari Nehru as the President and Dr(Mrs) S. Malhan as the founder Director of the college. 

IHE, New Delhi became a constituent college of the University of Delhi in the year 1969 and within a few years two more new programmes were introduced, i.e 1-year Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics & Public Health & Nutrition and 3-year B.Sc (Hons) in  Home Science.
