Our faculty is exceptional, ensuring that students of the highest calibre are churned out and our laboratories with state-of-the-art facilities are maintained extremely well. The faculty is brilliant, well qualified, with good international exposure and publications. They surpass in multifarious activities that promote an outlook of free inquiry and critical thinking in the classrooms. They stimulate a thought process, robust enough to resist the onslaught of antiquated tenets and conformist beliefs that stand in the way of a strong growth mindset in our students.
Hosting International and National Seminars, Workshops, Extension activities,and Collaborative courses are prioritized not only to hone the organizing abilities of our students, but also to facilitate international exposure and interaction with academicians and practitioners.

Pedagogical exercises that incorporate the latest methodologies in teaching are interwoven to make the classroom experience gratifying and the teacher mentoring is done effectively by engaging students in a constant dialogue that exposes them to real life activities and healthy human relationships.
It is not just academics that keep our students engaged, but a host of sports and sporting events that provide a truly invigorating environment. The college offers a robust ambience that supports the holistic development of each student. The NSS unit of our college is a spirited lot, contributing real support and social assistance to communities in rural as well as underprivileged areas.
Our library is our pride. Located in a prime spot in the campus, it houses around one lakh books, besides providing online access to international databases with a wider collection of reputed journals and titles. Our Non-teaching Staff are the finest – committed and full of enthusiasm, who spare no efforts to keep the office and campus running smoothly. Scholarships and financial support are granted to commendable students and students in need. Students who seek admission undergo a selection procedure based on an offline entrance exam conducted by the JKBOPEE.
Our impetus to excel is unabated and with collaborations and hands-on support from our staff members and students we are on the way to achieving global excellence. It is a matter of pride that we have been consistently ranked with an A grade by NAAC. Mediocrity is not for us, and bettering ourselves is our touchstone.
William Butler Yeats once defined education as “not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” At GCOE we start a bonfire!
