Internal Quality Assurance:

Assessment and Accreditation:
The accreditation status indicates that the particular institute meets the standards of quality set by the accreditation agency in terms of its performance related to the educational process and outcomes.

Along-with NBA accreditation, VIIT also obtained NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council – an autonomous body established by UGC) accreditation with “A” grade for five years with effect from September 2016.
