In 2002, as part of jubilee project, ‘Women Empowerment and Training’, the college decided to set up Women’s Study Center to offer job-oriented courses and life skill development for women.
Two courses were initiated:-
- P. G. Diploma in Fashion Designing and Apparel Merchandising
- Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Nutrition And Dietetics
In 2006, Certificate Programme in Jewellery Designing was started.
In 2007 the courses offered by the department were affiliated to Continuing Education Centre, Govt. of Kerala.
In 2008, due to high demand for a degree programme in Fashion Designing, Bachelor of Fashion Technology was started under the off-campus centre of Mahatma Gandhi University.
In 2011, the faculty members of the department prepared a proposal with syllabus for an Under Graduate course and submitted the same to UGC under the Innovative Scheme. In 2012, the UGC sanctioned the proposal and the department initiated the new degree programme – B.Sc Apparel and Fashion Design.
In 2016, the department initiated two Post Graduate programmes
