"Established in 1951, The New College is sponsored by the Muslim Educational Association of Southern India, a premier institution which has been endeavouring, since 1902, to lift the members of the community out of their educational backwardness and give them the benefit of higher education.
The New College has progressively developed into one of the leading institutions of higher education offering instruction in 23 courses in Humanities, Science and Commerce at the Under graduate level and 15 courses at the Postgraduate level.
The College has on its rolls about 2200 students in the Day College and about 2800 students in the Evening College .Though primarily established for providing higher education to Muslim students,its doors are open to deserving students from other communities.Deeniyat classes are conducted during college hours for muslim students and moral instruction classes for others with a view to inculcate moral and cultural values in them.
The college celebrated its silver jubilee in March 1978. The centenary celebrations of the MEASI and the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the College were held in January 2002 and the latter concluded in March 2002.
To mark the successful completion of 50 years in the field of Education and Community Development, the parent body MESAI has constructed a multi crore complex to accommodate all Post Graduate courses in Computer Science and Information Technology.This new building is provided with the latest electronic equipment and the relevant infrastructure.
