I pleasantly welcome you to Vishwakarma Institute of Information Technology (VIIT). VIIT attained the prestigious autonomous status from the year 2017-18. VIIT offers undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes in Faculty of Engineering. VIIT has adopted the choice-based credit system. VIIT regularly modernizes curricula with a higher standard to attain all the graduate attributes such as teamwork, communication, ethics, financial and managerial skills etc. along with technical competence. The institute also has the freedom to evolve methods of assessment of students’ performance, the conduct of examinations and notification of results.

VIIT has adopted the philosophy of outcome-based education. At VIIT, we strive to forge the young students first as competent engineers and then imbibe the present-day necessity of technical and life skills into them, whereby they are fully equipped to take up the challenges of the industry. Our philosophy is to shape good and competent engineers. VIIT students are now being placed not only in industries of repute within the country but also globally with consistently high pay packages. As a result of the institute establishing a strong foothold in engineering education, VIIT is accredited with grade ‘A’ by NAAC and all undergraduate programs have been granted NBA accreditation. VIIT has also obtained ISO certification.

At VIIT, ample opportunities, for internships in industry/research institute, industry-sponsored projects and collaborative projects with research institutes like TIFR, IISER, IUCAA, etc. are available. As a result of exposure to research experience, many of the students go abroad for higher studies. The interaction with industry and research institutes has helped to inculcate analytical abilities among the students. The academic and research culture at VIIT helps the students to excel in University examinations and placements. Several students from various programs of the institute have topped the rankers list of SPPU every year.

Our principal asset is the highly qualified faculty, the majority of them with international exposure. The faculty has put in efforts in pursuing research & development and consultancy activities which have helped them to keep abreast with the latest developments in their respective fields of interest. VIIT always had a clear vision that education must be experiential i.e. student’s curiosity should lead to exploration and implementation of ideas. Several technical activities like Perception, ROBOCON, SAE-SUPRA, BAJA, Science and Technology Exhibition (SciTech) etc. have grown consistently over the years. Students have won several accolades in sports, technical and cultural events.

As COVID-19 continues spreading in many countries of the world, VIIT has decided to implement an online education to over 3500 students from their homes, strong academic system, facilitated by qualified faculty, supported by ICT and state-of-the-art infrastructure, make the education process an enjoyable journey for students.

Welcome to VIIT!
