  • The classes used to be held on the choice of your subjects and teachers because there is flexible timing.

  • Some faculties are very good in all perspective and other have to work hard to reach the reference point.

  • The overall experience was cool and enjoyable .

  • Life is cool but for guys it\'s difficult to handle the pressure so most of us are isolated to use but there is a lot of facilities available in the college clubs and so many student societies are there for entertainment purpose.

The teaching staff is good in Vit. Engineering is BTW a self-interest. It\'s up to a student but the teaching staff from every branch is good.


Students societies are more clichéd. But it\'s nice. Robotics and car making clubs do a lot well. Festivals are common here. Both South and North Indian holidays are availed to students. Overall stay is pretty good.

  • In VIT they follow a vey scientific method of teching.The teachers out here are very hardworking and never miss a class and literally.Everything out here is digitalised that is all your submissions have to be submitted online and they have this software that sets a deadline upto which you can submit the assignment. If you dont submit it within that period of time the link will be blocked.As VIT as many affiliations with foreign universities their method of teaching is comparable to the universities abroad. If not every but most subjects have a project component that carries 100 marks and it helps you to apply the concepts learnt in the class to solve real life problems.
