From the CEO's Desk

“Together we can, together we will!’ At Vidyalankar Institute of Technology we continuously strive to make our curriculum world class by integrating the latest advances in engineering and technology as we are committed to providing quality education. The Institute encourages and guides its learners to look beyond the prescribed curriculum, and set their own targets for personal excellence. We nurture and polish young minds and guide them to face the challenges of the professional world by making them academically competent and industry-ready by focusing on strengthening their technical as well as soft skills. Highly dedicated efforts are made by the Placement Cell and the faculty to empower students in securing good jobs. Students who want to be entrepreneurs are also guided. Excellence is promoted in all spheres as we consider the holistic development of every student as important as one’s academic achievements and motivate them to become socially responsible global citizens. Healthy habits such as innovative thinking, reading, research orientation and decision-making are inculcated among our students so that they are well-equipped to add value to whichever organization they may choose to be a part of. I would like to conclude my message with the wise words of Swami Vivekananda – “We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one’s own feet”.
