The institute has been accredited at “A” Grade by KCG (GoG), and twice (2007 & 2014) by NAAC. It has a unique building and located in the heart of the city with greenery all around. It offers regular undergraduate (only science institute in the state to offer ten subjects), and Master’s degree programs conducted with well qualified and competent faculty, supportive administrative staff, excellent facilities and adequate infrastructurefor curricular and extra-curricular activities.The institute gets developmental and research grants from UGC, DBT, SAC-ISRO, GMDC, GSBTM, GUJCOST, GSA, etc.

To enhance the skills for career opportunitiesit also runs vocational course in Biotechnology(B.Sc. level); and UGC sponsored courses viz, Bio-informatics, Chem-informatics and Geo-informatics under the UGC-Career Oriented Program (COP).This makes it an obvious choice of most science students every year. Every year most of the students pursue higher education in India or abroad. Many are recruited through the Placement cell of the college in various organizations/companies.

The institute also encourages the students to participate inextra-curricular activities such as: N.C.C., N. S. S., Sports and CWDC.
