With the humble beginning from the year 1993, National school of Sciences (NSS), has reached the current stage passing 17 glorious years of its academic operation. We virtually commenced our journey with few dozens of students offering Science education to the SEE graduates under the affiliation of NEB. The Institute added its Faculty of Management in the year 1997, Bachelor level programmes BBS, BSc in Microbiology, Biochemistry, B. Tech (Food), B. Pharma and even Master’s degree in Microbiology, NSS in this way took a colossal dimension in the academic world and was converted later into the NSS education Network, At present the Network has been imparting quality education to around 2,000 students in plus two; 350 students in Bachelor’s level and 60 students in Master’s Degree. It has been a really challenging task for us to reach this stage. With zero level infrastructure in the beginning, we are equipped at present with our own building complexes at lainchour & Gongabu.&n
