Academics & Faculty:

It has fully flexible course system and the quality and the method of teaching is very good, the overall experience in the college is excellent.

The course fee was INR 1.1 lakhs per annum. Getting good ranks in VITEEE will help an average number of students to get the scholarship. The loans depend on the bank, and I don't have much idea about it.

Placements & Internships:

I got placed 2 times in Innotical solutions in Noida for 1 month each as a freelancer. I got hired on-campus in TCS, Wipro, Cognizant, Infosys and Honeywell as a Key Programmer. The highest package was INR 7.5 lakhs per annum in Honeywell. Alumni are not in touch. 


There is an entrance exam VITEEE and the admission is based on a merit and the cut offs varies every year.

Societies & Associations:
  • The overall college life is great at VIT University.
  • You have more than adequate access to clubs and societies, from all domains. The two major events are Gravitas (tech fest) and Riviera (cult fest). Since there are about 180 (were when I was there) clubs and societies it's not possible to name them here. To mention a few- Toastmasters, MAD, and ISOI.
College Infrastructure:
  • You have good hostels with strict regulations in VIT University. People may be fed up with the strictness but it is necessary to maintain the standards at which the college operates.
  • You have Wi-Fi access in most parts of the campus, which is huge by the way. The costs are set by the choice of rooms so they are variable, along with whatever amenities you avail.
Academics & Faculty:
  • You have good teachers in VIT University. The international exposure you get is unparalleled. It is impossible to follow up with everything that's going on in the college.
  • The daily routine schedule for each student is set by the student post 1st semester. So it varies on the number and type of subjects the student has taken up. You have a lot of extracurricular activities to choose from, ranging from college to international platforms.
Fees and Scholarship:
  • If you make it to the merit list then the course fee won't be high at VIT University. However, if your rank is on the higher (above 10k) side then it's a totally different thing.
  • You'll probably need a loan.
