This is also evidenced by the students securing university ranks consistently over the years.
The infrastructure offered by the college for all-round learning is amongst the best. Apart from the well-equipped laboratories, ICT enabled classrooms, library and state-of-the-art computer centre, the college has career guidance, placement and counselling centre.

Over the years the college has received several grants such as Centres of Innovative Science & Engineering Education (CISEE), Karnataka Fund for Improvement of Science and Technology Infrastructure (K-FIST) from VGST, Department of IT, BT, S & T, Government of Karnataka. Several UG and PG Science students have received grants to pursue innovative science projects under Science Projects in College Education (SPiCE) scheme from VGST, GoK.

A large number of students and faculty have presented papers at both National and International Conferences and many have published their work in research journals of repute. Recognizing the vibrant research culture, DST, GoI is supporting the college under its FIST program.
The college strongly believes in holistic development of students and hence co-curricular activities are given due importance. I welcome all prospective young minds to join this enthusiastic family of Oxfordites in your pursuit of self-actualization.
I wish a very bright future and success in all your endeavours.

The idea of forming an association of past Oxford-ites stemmed from the pull of an emotional bond with the college where students spend crucial years of their lives. The Oxford has produced more than 25,000 graduates who have contributed immensely to the industry both in India and abroad. Our alumni meets annually on the third Saturday of January to retrospect the role the institution has played to perfection in shaping the future of these young minds.
