About the Faculty of Home Science/ Community Science
The College of Home Science was established in the year 1973 and is the only full-fledged Home Science College catering to the needs of the entire North East Region. The five major disciplines of the Home Science are Food Science and Nutrition, Textile and Apparel Designing, Family Resource Management, Human
Development and Family Studies and Extension Communication Management. Presently the Home Science College has been renamed as Faculty of Community Science as per the recommendation of 5th Deans Committee with effect from the academic session 2016-17. Adorned with highly qualified staff, the faculty forms an intra intellectual community with diversified areas of interest with the main mandates of teaching, research and extension. The faculty offers both Undergraduate programme (four years) and Post Graduate Programmes in M.Sc. (2 years) and PhD (3 years). The faculty provides state of the art facilities for R & D for commercial exploitation and applications encompassing the different areas of food science, nutrition science, design ergonomics, textile chemistry and apparel designing, cognitive and behavioural assessment and communication management. The present curriculum is expected to contribute towards making the home science education socially relevant to enhance its impact on the community and also to enhance its professionalism.
