Karnatak Arts, Science and Commerce College, Bidar is the biggest learning hub of Bidar district, which is located in the Northern tip of Karnataka State.  Although a number of colleges have come up late in different parts of the district, yet this institution has been drawing the students from every corner because it offers a spectrum of courses which are not available in newly established colleges. It attracts the students irrespective of gender, geographical location, social & economic strata. Every year more than 2000 students are being enrolled in various disciplines exhibiting a typical example of the multi-disciplinary co-educational institute with four UG and six PG courses.

Off course, we have been part of the backward area; however, we have an association with repute Indian institutes such as Spoken Tutorial Project of IIT Mumbai, NSDC and using MIT and NPTL study materials to deliver quality education. Our Endeavour is to take Higher Education out of traditional contours and make it more job and market-oriented, accessible to all segments of society, ensuring gender equity and increasing the rate of employability by establishing academia-industry linkage in line with the market demand. Our efforts for expansion and modernization of existing infrastructure for UG & PG courses are going on in respect of up-gradation of laboratories, library, and smart-class rooms.
