The great city of Pune has a rich cultural heritage that goes back to the seventeenth century. It is considered as the source and inspirational centre for education from the very ancient times. Pune is now known as the Harvard, Stanford and Michigan of this part of the world. With its round- the- year salubrious climate, it has attracted many an industry including automobile, general engineering, chemicals and recently the IT. Pune boasts to be the city with scores of institutes imparting quality education to the young generation for providing the necessary manpower to these diversified enterprises.

The present need of the industry is challenging in that engineers must possess a combination of sound technical background and IT skills. At the Vishwakarma Institute of Information Technology, we strive to forge the young students first as competent engineers and then imbibe the present-day necessity of IT skills into them, whereby they are fully equipped to take up the challenges of the industry.

Our philosophy is to shape up good and useful engineers and not just graduates. Our students are made to face the industry head-on by way of numerous industrial projects which expose them to the state-of-the-art technology. We boast the highest on-campus recruitment and the vast majority of our graduates are accepted by reputed American universities for higher studies. We have tie-ups with various industries and educational institutions for transfer of technology. It is therefore not surprising that we get students from all parts of India. We never cease to cope up with the changing needs of the industry and have started postgraduate programs.

Our principal asset is the highly qualified faculty members, the majority of them with international exposure and our fully equipped laboratories. Students and guardians are encouraged to have continuous interaction with the faculty for a seamless understanding of the students progress. We give a keen emphasis on individual student counselling.

We are in the process of being one of the best engineering and IT institutions of India and are continuously putting efforts to be the very best to provide quality education and placement at amicable cost.
