National Cadet Corps is a Tri-Services Organization comprising of the Army, the Navy and the Air Force, engaged in grooming the youth ‘The Leaders of Tomorrow’ – into disciplined and patriotic citizens. In 1954, MCC committed to the cause of women empowerment and became the first all women’s college in Karnataka to start an NCC unit.
It provides an opportunity to develop qualities of character, courage, comradeship, discipline, leadership, secular outlook, the spirit of adventure and sportsmanship among the student cadets. It instills the idea of selfless service among the youth to mold them into better citizens. A Commissioned Lady Officer from the faculty commands the unit in college.
First-year degree students are eligible for enrollment based on eligibility norms of NCC. 85% attendance in parades is mandatory. This will enable the cadets to appear for B&C certificate exams. Annual camp attendance is compulsory. To encourage students to enroll in NCC, credits are awarded.
