VIT University sets record in Limca Book of Records

VIT University earned a place in the Limca Book of Records for the fourth year in succession for placing the maximum number of students in a single slot through its campus placement drive for the 2015 graduating batch, the selection for which was held between September 1 and 11, 2014.

According to VIT chancellor G Viswanathan the University also set three other records that earned a place in the Limca Book of Records this year. The first is that four IT companies recruited more than 1,000 students each from the 2015 graduating batch of VIT. The second record is that Cognizant has recruited 1,911 students from the 2015 graduating batch, and this is the largest recruitment from a single institution. Both VIT and Cognizant have surpassed their earlier records of 1,820 students from the 2012 VIT graduating batch.

VIT also set the record for the maximum number of students registered for the computer-based common entrance test for admission to the BTech programmes in 2015. A total of 2,02,406 aspirants registered for the VIT Engineering Entrance Examination which was held between April 8 to 19, 2015.

“These records show that we can set records and achieve it whenever we dream of it. We plan to enter the Guinness Book of Records. There is no stopping VIT,” the chancellor said.
