About the College

Govt. Zirtiri Residential Science College, Aizawal possesses the unique position of being the first and only science college in the State of Mizoram, NE India. It was established by an act of the State Assembly in 2000 with the primary vision of providing science education. Since then, the defined goal of the college is to ensure quality education for empowering the native people – who are educationally backward in science education – by enhancing the status of science and technology. Since then, the college is now proudly marching towards its second

decade of existence.

The College is affiliated to Mizoram University and offers 10 UG course, besides 1 certificate course as a value-added course. It is registered under 2(f) & 12-B of UGC Act under the nomenclature ‘Govt. Zirtiri Women’s College’ in 1989, which was later re-named to its present form in 2000. Home Science, Biochemistry and Electronics are courses available in the college which are not offered anywhere else in the State. It is also the first college in Mizoram to start BCA programme.

The college is currently located in the heart of Aizawl, the capital city on temporary buildings with inadequate space for Classrooms, Computer laboratories, Auditorium, Science laboratories and Library. After much cajoling and frequent submission of pleas, the State Government has allocated land for its permanent campus where construction works have
commenced for hostel facilities in the new campus.

The College was accredited with Grade B by NAAC in 2009. Re-collecting and reflecting on our quality status during these past years, and endeavouring to live true to the motto, ‘Lighted to Lighten’ the College has now volunteered for a second accreditation cycle. In spite of the seemingly difficult situations and working conditions, we choose to persevere. All efforts within our capacity are taken into perspective to involve the stakeholders – students, faculty members, alumni, parents, and the Government to ensure quality sustenance and enhancement.
