P.G.D.A.V. College - PGDAVC Dehli - PGDAVC
Pannalal Girdharlal Dayanand Anglo-Vedic (PGDAV) College is one of the oldest constituent colleges of the top ranking University of Delhi. It was founded in 1957 by a leading business house of Delhi M/s Pannalal Girdharlal (having Corporates such as Victor Cables Corporation Ltd, BKG Energy Ltd, Standard Wiring Systems Ltd, etc) and DAV College Managing Society and is situated at one of the most prime and easily accessible location in Nehru Nagar (Opposite Srinivaspuri) on Ashram Junction on Ring Road, New Delhi with a sprawling campus. It can be reached easily not only from all corners of Delhi but also from the neighboring towns of Faridabad, Ghaziabad and Noida. Lajpat Nagar and Moolchand metro stations are close to the college.
PGDAV College is a co-educational institution. It is well-known for excellence not only in academics but also in sports and other co-curricular activities. It has eleven teaching departments, offering undergraduate course of the University of Delhi in the board disciplines of Arts, Commerce, Computer Science and Mathematical Sciences. It also offers instructions in post graduate courses in four subjects, viz. Commerce, Hindi, Maths and Political Science. Over the years the College has emerged as a centre of excellence under the stewardship of its highly qualified and experienced faculty. Many faculty members are associated with post graduate teaching, where they are guiding students at post graduate, M. Phil. and doctoral levels. Some of our faculty members have achieved accolades shifting to careers in administration (IAS etc.) and politics as well.
There are a number of societies and academic associations in various subjects which organize activities both at inter class and inter-college levels. This provides ample opportunities to our students to express themselves creatively, learn useful skills, broaden their horizons, and indulge in a healthy spirit of competition. Through these societies, associations, and even independently, our students have participated in academic and co-curricular activities at various platforms and have brought honours for themselves and for the college. Altogether, the students are provided ample opportunities to hone their intellectual and cultural faculties.
The college placement cell looks after the professional interests of students. It has been arranging employment and internships for a large number of students since its incorporation. It emphasizes on improving the Personality and Group Discussion skills of students.
The philosophy of college education is translated into a mission of creating wholesum personality of human beings with a view to produce better employees with modern attitude, practical wisdom, knowledge and skill relevant to enable them to move forward confidently. With this notion in mind, I wish college placement cell of 2013-2014 every success in future endeavor to continue working for best of interests of the college students.
