A group of enlightened citizens of Malleshwaram felt a need to open a college in Malleshwaram particularly to provide facilities to girl students, who had to go as far as Maharanis College for their courses in higher learning. The founders Sri.G.A.Acharya, Prof.B.R. Subba Rao, Sri. M.Chinnaswamy, Sri M.R.Narasimha Iyengar, Prof.M.P.L.Sastry and Smt Vimala Rangachar responded to this need by starting an intermediate college in 15th Cross, Malleshwaram, and started the institution in 1956-57 with a student strength of 68.
In 1962 courses in Science started. In the course of its historical development MES College has acquired great prominence not only in Karnataka but also in the country.The growth is both quantitative and qualitative. The college is now a four-floor stone structure with an annex to accommodate the growing strength of students.
Learning indeed is a great ornament of a person and is his hidden and protected wealth.Learning is the teacher of teachers. Education is not merely the quantity of information that is put into one’s brain and stays there unused.It is the assimilation of ideas that empowers one in life skills and character building. True education not only helps an individual to earn a lively hood,but also helps in leading a meaningful and fruitful life,which in turn enables one to build a healthy and strong society. The wealth of knowledge is the most valued of all forms of wealth. Wealth that is knowledge grows and increases even when it is shared.
Friends, then everyone looks for the treasure place of wealth of knowledge,the place where such an education is imparted. I am sure the answer to the right path and the right place is available in the pages to continue.
With best wishes
