Located on a sprawling 50 acre campus, Government Autonomous College, Rourkela maintains its reputation as a premier college under Sambalpur University. At the time of its inception in 1961, it was located in a small building at the sector area of the Steel Township and it was then named as Government Science College, Rourkela. The college has always identified itself with the values that our society upholds and in doing so it has solidly anchored itself as an institution that helps in building personality and character that play a vital role in the ultimate analysis. Our students are certainly equipped to encounter the varied experiences of the life with an active and contemplative mind. They are guided by a committed and determined group of faculty members and other college staffs. Students come to this citadel of learning from far-flung places.
