Pondicherry University Community College (PUCC) is the first conceptualized Community College in India. It came into existence on 16th October, 1995 with the University Grants Commission's recognition through Ministry of Education, Government of India. Since its inception it has been rendering the best possible service to community of underprivileged youth of Puducherry Union Territory, Tamil Nadu and PAN India. PUCC offers Vocational courses which are cotemporary for the youth in line with the New National Education Policy of the Ministry of Education, Government of India.
Synchronizing with the expectation of the stakeholders, PUCC offers education in skill based vocational and regular stream of courses. The imparting of knowledge and skill in PUCC involves salient features like in situ demonstrative and theory classes, field trips combined with internship / in plant training programs simultaneously. It assures a platform for enhancement of skills through empowerment leading to employment, vertical mobility to higher studies and state of employability. Besides a special emphasis is given for building human values and leadership skills among the students.
Appreciations have pour in to the College for the novelties and innovations imparted through on-line mode of education, conduct of examinations and functioning of PUCC during the time of acute pandemic due to Covid-19. I whole heartedly dedicate the achievements of PUCC to the Faculty, Staff & Students as their relentless efforts are instrumental to attain the same.
I warmly welcome the new students to enjoy the aroma of vocational education with practical exposure and the beauty of employability with a blend of achievements by selecting and studying a course of their choice in PUCC and assure our best services to the student community at all times.
