K.L.E. Society’s Raja Lakhamagouda Science Institute was established in 1935 that signified the renaissance of the mind to the seekers of knowledge, in the pre-independent North Karnataka. Initially, the Science course was introduced in Lingraj Arts College. It was progressing by leaps and bounds; and subsequently in 1941, it was named as Raja Lakhamagouda Science Institute after the name of the munificent Sardar Raja Lakhamagouda Basavaprabhu Sardesai of Wantmuri, who had generously helped the institute. Sir C. V. Raman, the Nobel Laureate inaugurated the degree course in science in 1944. Further, in 1958 the science wing was bifurcated from Lingraj College as a full-fledged science institute.
