About Us

In 1993, Vedavathi Govt First Grade college was started just with 17 students with BSc[PME] Course in a small building in Hiriyur. Today, we have more than 300 students with BSc, BCA & BBM Course spread across well pledge Diamond shape building. It is our unwavering commitment to the highest quality education that has speeded us on this journey. I would also like to thank the generations of parents who have entrusted us with the care and education of their children. It is their faith and belief in our College that has helped us come this far. I believe that education has the most critical role to play in the progress of a nation. We realize that our students represent the future of our society and we take our responsibility.

This college was established in 1993 – 94 with a vision to offer education to the rural , semi-urban , socially and economically backward students of the taluk in science stream. Because the students of the taluk who wanted to pursue B.Sc. had to commute more than 40 to 50 km. to Chitradurga. This has indeed been proved a boon especially for the female students who had to drop education as they were not sent to far off places for their education. The classes were started in a building belonging to the Department of Public Instruction till 2005 when a separate , spacious and magnificent building was constructed and handed over to the  Department of Collegiate Education. The college had PME as the only combination when it was started. Presently it  offers three programmes viz., B.Sc, BCA and BBM which cater to the needs of more than 220 learners now. When it was started in 1993 it only had B.Sc. to offer, but the growing demand and global trends of the time have made it possible for the college to offer the above said three distinctive programmes. From 2011-12 the college is fully affiliated  to young Davanagere University which came to existence in 2009-10.
