A. Veeriya Vandayar Memorial Sri Pushpam College(Autonomous), Poondi is a dreamfulfilment of Late Rao Bahadur Sri. A. Veeriya Vandayar.
Late Rao Bahadur Sri. A. Veeriya Vandayar after visiting European countries established the college with a vision of new ideas. The institution is named after the family deity Sri Pushpa Vaneswara. This college named after him is a fitting tribute paid to the beacon light to shatter the ignorance of the rural mass. The entire family members are serving the society in this area for the upliftment of economically backward people.
|Poondi Pushpam College is doing a good service to students in the rural areas in and around Thanjavur, a district headquarters town, which is 14 kilometers from this college.
In a semi-urban region like Poondi, the nearest urban conglomeration is Thanjavur, which is a big town and has booming tourist traffic as well. Tanjore is also home to the famous SASTRA Deemed University. Hence, to exploit the needs of tourists and provide trained manpower to handle the requirements of that town, Poondi Pushpam college conducts both certificate and diploma courses in Tourism: Planning, Promotion, and Development, at the Sri Pushpam Institute of Vocational Education at Technology, and this institute functions from Thanjavur itself. Hence, those who are interested, enroll in this course.
The other courses conducted at this Vocational Institute include the Certificate and Diploma Courses in Accounting Software, Developing Speaking Skills, Solar Energy, and Food Science and Quality Control.
The college also runs UGC-sponsored career-oriented courses in Diploma in Handicrafts/Thanjavur Arts and Painting. This course is particularly relevant, as those who are skilled in Thanjavur Painting, run their own export houses, and the paintings are also exported and sold online for huge profits. They fetch very good profits within the country as well, when one sees the response and reports in social media.
Air-conditioning and Refrigeration is another such course. The Multimedia and content publishing course is also highly career-oriented.
The Post-graduate Diploma courses include ones in Computer Applications (PGDCA), Agriculture, Biofertilizers, and Micro Processor & Computer Hardware and the unique thing is that they are run by college departments themselves, as special courses. For example, the Physics Department runs the Micro Processor and Computer Hardware course.
These courses obviously have a local feel and are particularly relevant for the rural environment of Poondi and the semi-urban conglomeration of Tanjore, that is the nerve center for hundreds of villages in and around it.
