About Us

St. Joseph’s College is a legacy of the 19th century, handed down to us by the venerable fathers of the society of the Foreign Mission of Paris.  Its nucleus was the St. Joseph’s High School which was started in 1868 A.D. This School was elevated into a college in 1884 A.D. through the efforts of Father Tarbes and was affiliated to the University of Madras. The District-Gazetteer, South Arcot District, has recorded that the prime educational institution and the only college in the District in the 19th century was St. Joseph’s College.  It once again became a high school in 1909 due to financial and other constraints. Since then, there had been several attempts to revitalize the college. The dream became a reality when the college was reborn as St. Joseph’s College of Arts and Science in 1991. The college was inaugurated on 11th October 1991, at a stately function presided over by His Excellency Bhishma Narain Singh, the then Governor of Tamil Nadu through the efforts of Rev. Fr. R. Ratchagar, the then Secretary of the College. The college obtained Permanent Affiliation on 08.02.2008, the Autonomous status on 09.06.2008, and the reaccreditation status ‘A’ Grade on 16.09.2011 by the NAAC. Under the leadership of the present Secretary of the College Rev. Fr. G. Peter Rajendiram our institution is marching towards excellence in this Jubilee Year.

History of Placement Cell:

            Placement Cell is an integral part of our institution. Training activities are organized throughout the year in an effort towards preparing the prospective students for the campus selection programs. It was established in the year 1998 and was re-structured during 2003-04 to empower the student’s community in terms of providing training and securing part-time, full-time jobs. The objective of the placement cell is to encourage number of internships and create awareness among the students about the professional requirements of the employers and through the internships the students learn by experiencing the working culture of the companies and have a more mature understanding of the needs of the employers.

           The Placement cell of the institute is largely responsible and committed to the identification and catering to the need of training the students so that they are able to develop a good personality; and assist them to find right job and help them place in right companies before they pass out. We realize that in order to convert a raw student in to employable graduate, several behavioral attributes need to be addressed in addition to the development of technical skills. Some of the behavioral attributes are good communication skills, developing positive attitude towards work, understanding of moral and ethical values; to ensuring that students are aware of local and global economic scenario, to industrial and R&D trends, prediction of future technologies etc. A blend of such interpersonal skills, awareness and the essential technical training they get in their course of study makes them an ideal candidate suitable for employment and service to the nation.
