Animal House

In the year 2010, an animal house was set up to give students learning in specialized areas. The institution has obtained ethical clearance (Reg.No. 1416/PO/Re/S/11/CPCSEA) from the Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying, Govt. of India for the handling of small animals for research for education purpose. It is the first among institutions to obtain this feature in Periyar University, Salem.

"Bettering health care. With knowledge and skills."

Industry Institution Interaction Cell (IIIC)

The current situation demands interaction between educational institutes and industry. The curriculum and the exposure of students to the industry environment will be greatly influenced by Industry Institute Interaction. A close contact between academics and industry is required during all stages of technological development, from conceptualization to commercialization. The Muthayammal College of Arts and Science's Industry Institute Interaction Cell was founded with the following goals in mind:

  • To develop close ties with industry
  • To encourage staff members and students to engage in a variety of industrial activities
  • To strengthen connections and support consulting and research that is appropriate for industry needs
  • To provide ongoing education to industry workers so they can advance their technical expertise and/or obtain higher degrees.

Campus Company:

As a major initiative, we have signed MOU with Molecular Connections Pvt. Ltd, Bangalore in July-2022 to set up the facility in our campus. Currently, the company is running in temporary facility with seating capacity of 35 seats within the college premises.

Co-ordinator: Dr.R.Vijayakumar, Asst. Professor, Dept. of Physics

Green Campus

Since the year 2019, MCAS has maintained a green campus. Medicinal gardens, Azolla cultivation, and compost making are done regularly. There are 97 varieties of medicinal plants, 3 Azolla cultivation bags and 3 pits for compost making using tree waste and vegetables are maintained throughout the year. The prepared compost are used as manure for medicinal plants and other trees in the campus.
