Maitreyi College - MC
Maitreyi College, a constituent College of the University of Delhi, was founded in 1967 by Delhi Administration. The College community is proud to bear the name of Maitreyi, who was an eminent scholar of the Vedic period who was the wife of sage Yajnavalakya. Maitreyi chose knowledge over worldly possessions, when asked by her husband to make a choice between the two; the dialogue between Maitreyi and Yajnavalakya in Brihadaranyaka Upanishad shows her as an empowered woman, determined to attain self realization through knowledge. It has been our objective to weave these values into the fabric of our education system which is a blend of the best of tradition and modernity.
The College made a modest beginning at Netaji Nagar with a staff of seventeen teachers offering only B.A. (Pass) and B.Sc. (General) courses. It has since made rapid progress both in size and stature. Presently our campus in Chanakya Puri is spread over ten acres of land in lush green surroundings with extensive play grounds and open spaces. We have a distinguished faculty of 125 teachers and 93 members for administrative support.
Maitreyi College now offers postgraduate courses in Mathematics and Political Science including honours courses in Physical and Life Sciences, Commerce and Humanities. Last year our College started Post Graduate Diploma in Nanotechnology, the first such course in University of Delhi. The college has another first to its credit by focusing on e-learning methodology to create teaching material and evaluation quizzes. The College also offers short term certificate courses in Journalism and Web-designing.
For the all round personality development of our students, the College has initiated programmes of awareness in health & fitness, legal aid services, disaster management and self-defense. Apart from our excellence in academics, we have an established tradition of continuous achievements in the field of sports, NCC, NSS and Cultural activities.
The College had many ‘firsts’ to its credit – The first College in the University of Delhi to offer PG Diploma in Nanotechnology and the first to adopt E-Learning methodology to create teaching material and evaluating quizzes.
