About The College:

The Government of Maharashtra and the University of Mumbai granted permission to the Gokhale Education Society, Nashik to start a single faculty Science College at Bordi from the academic year 1994-95. The College started with one division of F.Y. B.Sc. and developed into a full-fledged degree college of Science in subsequent years. The College has created facilities for the urban as well as rural and adivasi students for higher education in Science and has tried to make them self-sufficient and employable in the industrial sectors. Late Shriman Nagarjibhai Bhagawanjibhai Mehta, from Valwada, served in the G.E.Society’s S.P.H. High School, Bordi from 1944 to 1969. He rendered his services with utmost integrity and sincerity. He was a disciple of Acharya Bhise and a follower of Mahatma Gandhi. He came forth with a munificent donation and his son Nitinbhai Mehta in accordance with his wishes constructed the college building. The college is named after Shriman Nagarjibhai Mehta. The College is committed to cater to the needs of the area and the residents of Bordi, Gholwad, Borigaon, Dahanu, Jawhar, Mokhada, Talasari and Wada Tahasils. The College has its own beautiful campus of two acres, close to the seashore and it functions in its own buildings situated at a distance of about 2 kms. from the Gholwad Railway Station (W.Rly.)


Scientific and technological advancement has influenced every facet of society. The rapid development in electronics, computing and communications has led to the creation of Information Technology (IT). With a view to keep pace with the changing times and to equip ourselves to meet the challenges posed before us in the present competitive era, we undertook to develop a computer training centre which has gradually developed as a centre for Graduate and Post Graduate courses in IT and Computer Science. In the year 2000, Late Mr Jaykumar Pathare, a well-known industrialist from Kalyan, came forward to help the Society with a generous donation for the proposed computer academy. This enabled us to construct a well-equipped separate multi storied building for the Institute of Information Technology so that we could cater to the need of advanced education in the field of Information Technology at Bordi Centre.
