Innovative Methods in Teaching
The Starting of the Bapatla College Of Arts & Sciences in 1963 Was in fulfillment of the long cherished desire of the people of Bapatla area to have a centre of higher Education, Sponsored by the Bapatla Education Society, it has had a humble beginning with 181 students on rolls in PUC.
Affiliation for B.A. Class was given in 1964 and for B.Sc. and B.Com. Classes in the year following. The total strength of Students now stands around 2,300, a goodly percentage of them being girls.The college has been, over the years, known for its tireless striving towards academic excellence and cordial relations among all concerned.
The blessings and good wishes Dr.A.L.Narayana,the then Vice-Chancellor and Honourable Minister of that time, Sri Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy, Sri Kasu Brahmananda Reddy and Sri Alapati Venkatramaih helped to establish the College as planned, not withstanding the heavy odds the Society had to contend with.
Thanks to the strenuous efforts of the College Committee and the liberal UGC Grants, a nice campus with 28 Acres, well equipped hostels, library, laboratories, spacious class rooms and play-fields has taken shape over a period of years.
The munificence of the trustees of Sri Annavarapu Pundarikakshudu Scholorship Fund Trust and magnanimity of the Eastern Choultry who made handsome donations of Rs. 55,000/- and Rs.50,000/- respectively to the college provided the financial nucleus of the institution. The College also owes its existance not a little to the Bapatla Municipal Council and the generous and philanthropic spirit of a host of other donors and devoted men of action of Bapatla and the villages nearby.
A significant step towards the fulfilment of the laudable objectives with which the Education Society was started, was taken in 1981 with the establishment of the Bapatla Engineering College, a gift to this area of Late Sri Kona Prabhakara Rao, Founder Secretary, Bapatla Education Society and former Governor, Maharashtra. With the starting of the Bapatla Public School in 1987 and later the opening of M.Sc.(Maths), M.Sc.(Electronics). The Bapatla College of Pharmacy and The Bapatla Law College in 1995-96 the Society's unending quest for expansion acquired another memorable dimension, viz, that of having courses ranging from K.G to P.G under same management.
It is accepted on all hands that the crying need of the hour is to have job oriented courses. In recognition of this, prestigious courses like B.Sc. with Computer Science/Electronics as one of the electives, B.Sc. Microbiology, B.C.A, B.Sc.(Computer Science & Electronics) and B.Com. (Computer Application) Courses were started in the College. M.Sc.(IS) was started during the year 2001-2002. M.Sc.(Microbiology) Course is started during the academic year 2003-04.
That all the Inistitutions sponsored by the Society will progress from strength to strength and fullness of time shape into leading inistitutions of their kind in this part of the country is our fervent hope.
