Born as an offshoot in 1974, with a sense of social obligation of West Coast Paper Mills Ltd., Dandeli one of the largest paper industry in India.

The college has the privilege of having a healthy, harmonious ambience and rich values which have played pivotal role in shaping the future of innumerable students. Our mission is to transform students into rational thinkers, competent workers, law abiding citizens and spiritually enlightened individuals. This is my firm belief that the rich values and traditions imbibed here would carry you to greater heights.

Dear students, in this era of cut throat competition, it is of paramount importance to be equipped with appropriate knowledge, habits, attitudes and values leading to holistic development. Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities organised by various clubs and societies facilitate the process of creative and critical thinking. They not only inculcate social and moral values, compassion for nature, pride for Indian culture and tradition and awareness for one’s rights and duties but also make students good human beings and confident leaders. I intently believe that you would develop versatile personality during your stay in this temple of learning.

Along with usual UG courses B.A., B.Com. B,Sc. and PG courses M.Sc. (General chemistry), M.Com.,the college runs a unique four years degree course of Bachelor of Applied Science B.A.Sc. with specialization in Pulp and Paper technology since 1978 and a four semester PG course MSc Tech (Pulp and Paper) of KUD with a tripartite MOU between KUD, WCPM and College since 1998. Our success story of Industry Academia relation a living example of building skill India thought off by committed educationists and industrialists 40 years ago which has resulted in 100% placement till today. So far over 600 graduates and post graduates of this course have already made their mark in the paper industries around the globe.

To be successful in life, have ambitions and define your goals clearly. Discipline and hard work is the key to success. Be regular in your classes and focus on your goals. Your concerted efforts with the able guidance of your teachers would definitely provide you a blissful and successful life.
