Dear All, I feel pleased to take this opportunity to welcome you to Amrit Science Campus. Amrit Campus, also known as Amrit Science Campus (ASCOL) and previously familiar as public science campus (PUSCOL) is a government science campus, under Institute of Science and Technology, Tribhuvan University. Located in the heart of Kathmandu metropolis, with its noteworthy presence at Lainchaur and Thamel, this central college has already transcended sixty years of its enduring journey. Initially, established for intermediate levels in sciences, this college started graduate programs in 1968 and postgraduate programs in 1991. Till date, plenty postgraduate alumni have their alma mater in physics, chemistry, botany, zoology and mathematics, received from this institution. A master plan has been designed to expand and sustain the overall domain of the campus. Even with limitations on funding, the campus has expanded its instructional program into morning, the late afternoon and even winter vacation to address this unmet need.

The overall journey of this campus, since inception, has been enticing. Despite various ups and downs in its sexagenarian drive, the campus needs to be refurbished to accommodate distinguished faculties and produce qualified resources to build a prosperous country. I wish all the best to all students and faculties and wish for the continuous progress of this institution.

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
