Silapathar Science College was established in 1996 in this geographically isolated Silapathar region under the 114 No. Assam Legislative Assembly Constituency of Dhemaji, the most flood-prone district of Assam by a group far-sighted individuals in particular and the local public in general so as to pave the way for the creation of scientific temperament among the people of this backward region and participate in the ever-expanding horizons of science education.
The Vision and Mission of this Institution is
Since then, it has been playing a vital role in the dissemination of science education to the students of the Northern bank of The Mighty Brahmaputra along with those from the neighboring state of Arunachal Pradesh.
The college had been established to act as a symbol of hope and change in this far flung tribal region of the District. This premier institution took up the cudgels to convey the aspirations of a deprived society, particularly in the field or science education.
The College has continuously ventured to negotiate the path of vertical and horizontal expansion, its supreme goal being the dissemination of knowledge and in doing so it has now even stepped into an increasingly digitized and competitive world in an effort to raise the standards and to keep pace with the changing times.
