“Chief aim of education is the harmonious development of all the God given power and capacities of a human being”
Soka Ikeda College of Arts and Science for Women College aims at academic excellence and character building of each and every student. ”Soka” in Japanese language means “Creating Values”. Education without discipline can not make a person a great personality. We are proud and privileged to have the great poet, philosopher and peace lover Dr.Daisaku Ikeda as our Honorary Founder and Mrs Kaneko Ikeda as our Honorary Principal.
The college with the “THE INSTITUTION OF EXCELLENECE AWARD” from the Indian Council of Gandhian Studies, New Delhi is catering to the students from rural areas in and around Ambattur, near the outskirts of Chennai. Economically backward students receive scholarships from our benevolent Chairman Dr.Sethu kumanan and philanthropists. Many first generation learners benefit from our services.
Affiliated to the University of Madras, the college offers 12 UG courses, 7 PG courses and M.Phil in Commerce. The College was started in 2000 with 70 students. In the fourteenth year of its inception it has a strength of 1600 students. The students take up the common examinations conducted by the University of Madras in two semesters every year. We encourage the students to participate in para-academic courses and extra curricular activities which will help them in their personality developments.
The Memorandum of Understanding with Soka University, Tokyo facilitates the Youth Exchange Programme whereby every year two of our students can go to Soka University and learn a few courses for five months there. Two students from Soka University come to our college and stay here for five months to do a few courses of their choice in our college.
The dedicated and qualified Assistant Professors impart knowledge to the students, guide and provide them counseling. The students pass out with flying colours and every year our students bag a few ranks in the University examinations. The college has well equipped laboratories, library and a sprawling sports ground. Our placement cell functions very efficiently and every year many third year students get placed in multinational companies and organizations of standing.
