ACADEMICS & FACULTY:

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.

CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS:

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.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • 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.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • The definite plus point is the wide variety of courses that are offered and the flexibility that students have in choosing what courses they want to do. I had the opportunity to do several amazing courses while satisfying my electives requirement. I can\'t speak for other departments but mine had professors who had excellent knowledge in their subjects and could articulate it very well to us. What was disappointing was the testing. I felt like the exams didn\'t give a window for the student to actually learn and apply his subject. While there are a few courses which have a project component included with them, students usually have to rely on themselves and take the initiative to do projects through non-academic means.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY:
  • VIT follows a fully flexible credit system in which we can select our teachers and the subjects. We can either choose morning slot(8 AM ) or the evening slot (2 PM) according to our convenience. Other than this we have to make projects on every subject in every sem. 20% of our final marks are based on this project. These projects helps us a lot to increase our practical knowledge of the subjects. Teachers here are really good and cooperative. We get reguler assignments and have exams thrice every sem. 2 are the minors called CAT\'S (continuous assessment test) and finals are called FAT\'s (final assessment test). Other then this we have lab exams too.
