Welcome to our college

Mandapeta is a small, semi-rural town of East Godavari District, the rice bowl of Andhra Pradesh. More than 80% of the populations are farmers, both big and small and agricultural workers. The place is surrounded by lush green rice fields and luxuriant vegetation. It is also a bustling commercial centre for clusters of surrounding villages. It is developing into a bio-industrial hub with a number of animal husbandry, poultry and agri-based units coming up around it.

Realizing the need for better educational facilities and opportunities for its rural youth, the people of Mandapeta founded Mandapeta Educational Society (MES) in 1989.The MES started its efforts for establishing a Degree College at Mandapeta. It acquired a fertile land of 8.29 acres at Maredubaka, a small village on the outskirts of Mandapeta. An amount of ten lakhs was deposited as corpus fund. As a result of relentless efforts of the members of the society along with concerted support of the people the Government of Andhra Pradesh issued G.O. starting the Degree College in 1989 (G.O. Ms.No: 253, Edn, dated 3-8-1989 )

The founders envisioned the college to grow into an institution of excellence imparting quality instruction and shape responsible future citizens with global competencies catering to the needs of National development.

Thus Government Degree College, Mandapeta started functioning in the academic year 1989-90 with B.Sc., B.Com and B.A Courses. It is affiliated to Andhra University, Visakhapatnam. It had the unique distinction of being the first college in the state which offered B.Sc Computer Science Course from its very inception.

Initially the college functioned in the premises of Government Junior College, Mandapeta. Later in the year 1999-2000 it shifted to its own campus at Maredubaka with one administrative block and nine class rooms.
