I am a proud alumnus of VIT Vellore campus. I Completed my postgraduate course "M.E - Computer Science and Engineering" in the year 2001.
VIT is a place where we can derive a lot of insights into understanding who we are? what are we? and a place where we can set our targets achievable.
As the logo says, "Uzhaipae Uyarvutharum" and it is the place where we have "a Place to learn and a chance to grow".
Department of Computer Science and Engineering,
I graduated from VIT in 2002, with a BE degree in Computer Science Engineering. It was our first time away from home but the college ended up being a home away from home. VIT not only provided us with strong theoretical and practical fundamentals via its extensive curriculum - it also provided us with fantastic placement support which eventually helped me crack my first job with Accenture. And there has been no looking back since then. Armed with a VIT degree and Accenture experience under my belt, I was able to further secure an admission in the prestigious Indian School of Business, Hyderabad. I eventually moved into the startup space and graduated to being CEO of an early stage fund. I currently am founder of a company which advises startups - helping them go from idea to execution to fundraise. VIT has been instrumental in setting my career trajectory and it's no surprise seeing my alma mater being part of the top colleges of India. It's a proud feeling to see the college doing so well and to see it adding continuous value to all the batches after us as well. Happy to be a small part of this story.
I cannot describe VIT in few words or lines as it is way beyond that. VIT is not only just educating people but it is making the world a better place to be on. Those who study at VIT not only have exposure to most advanced technology and learning.... but also gain a deeper sense of human responsibility. Apart from making its Alumni successful in career it also makes them wonderful human beings who are assets to the society, country and the human race. I am just a happy, satisfied and successful droplet of the ocean which VIT has produced. I can just say Thank you VIT for making me what I am today.
Thanks & Regards,

VIT has always remained very close to my heart for various reasons. VIT was very successful in bringing out our talents and potentials much before we stepped into the real world. Its unbelievable that right after we left VIT, most of us clearly knew what our strengths and weaknesses were. To this date, I am perplexed in how true our projections and learnings were. The vision set by our loving GV sir stands firm and sets a great example on how vision needs to be set and executed. VIT has and will always remain a place that provides a rich platform for students to groom themselves. The management, unlike many other regional institutions, never intruded into the privacy of the students and has let the students decide their lives, careers and futures. That is a great example of leadership.
Our learnings and experiences from VIT days reflect greatly in our daily lives. A few days ago I was congratulated for having pulled off a major event management activity. The company was very surprised how I was able to pull off such an event in India, considering I had never worked in India before. The reason is, I had pulled off such events at VIT 20 years ago!
It is remarkable that VIT reaches out to Alumni so often. Even in the US, VIT leadership was very active in socializing with students and alumni. During my days as the Secretary of the VIT alumni association, we were constantly challenged to bring out our best. GV sir's personal interest to learn about every student's life is astonishing. Few weeks ago, we met GV sir at an airport. He spent lot of time patiently listening our professional and personal lives.
It gives great pleasure in seeing VIT students succeed in professional and academic areas globally. VIT students in my organization are performing exceptionally well!
Best wishes to VIT and its management for the years to come.
My name is Deepa, a writer by profession and a Computer Science engineer from Vellore Engineering College (1998-2002) by qualification.I would attribute my strength to deal with the many facets of life today to the four years of education in VIT.
Vellore Institute of Technology has grown so much in fame and name today! The institution lives up to the standards it has always strived to set, ever since its formative years. It is a place for people with the best intent, to learn from the best resources (teachers, infrastructure, and processes) in the best standards set at par with the world's well-known educational institutes.
It has been 16 years since my graduation and I have visited VIT many times with the professional hat on. Every visit, I see that the University regards the feedback from alumni very sincerely and is on the constant search for improvements. The Faculty, the Management and the Non-teaching Administrative staff along with the researchers work like no other educational group, to make VIT good at what it is: A place to learn, a Chance to grow!
I look forward to my next visit to the institute as I write this note on the University!
