Defence Authority Degree College started functioning in the then SKBZ High School building in September 1988, with the aim of providing excellent facilities to the students in a healthy academic environment.
The College was shifted to its present campus on 3rd September 1990. In a short period of time the college made a name for itself as one of the best colleges in Karachi. Ideally located on Khayaban-e-Rahat, in Phase-VI of DHA, the stately campus, provides a quiet and peaceful atmosphere for all academic and co-curricular activities.
The college, with great ideals and achievements is still growing fast and moving from strength to strength, establishing excellent standards and new records.
Like other educational institutions of Defence Housing Authority, this College is also running under the DHA Administrator, who is a serving Brigadier from Pakistan Army. Commander 5 Corps Karachi is the President of the Executive Board of the Authority and all the educational institutions of DHA function under his guidance.
At Defence Authority Degree College, our endeavor is to focus on the academic development as well as personal growth so as to groom your child into knowledgeable and responsible individuals. Our college is registered with the Department of Literacy, Government of Sindh; we are an affiliate of the University of Karachi for Degree Courses and Board of Intermediate Education Karachi for our Intermediate Programs.
A college course provides an opportunity to make a fresh start, to discover new interests, to develop knowledge and skills and to make new friends. Over the past twenty years, we have helped to educate boys and girls who have gone on to take positions of responsibility, and so helped to shape the world in which we live. Their success is a testament to the value of this College and its place in the society. With a well trained faculty, staff and over 35 classrooms and standard range of laboratories, community spaces at our disposal, our priorities are very clear.
