Vidyalankar is a great blend of management concepts applied to the professional domain. Vidyalankar is a crucible in which world class engineers drop several immensely bright, tough nuts.

Vidyalankar has been quite instrumental in shaping me as the person I am today. It has definitely left its mark on me, from the more realistic thinking, to having a broader outlook at things, meeting people from various walks of life, learning new concepts and conventions to name a few things. The Institute has given me plenty of opportunities to learn and develop as an individual, not just academically but also in terms of live projects, competitions and host of other activities. The institute is constantly lively and active with plenty of student committees and clubs working throughout the year setting new benchmarks. I never imagined that I would be spending the best 4 years of my life at Vidyalankar, meeting awesome people, achieving quite a few remarkable feats, doing all sorts of random crazy things…and looking back…I am going to miss and cherish these memories for years to come!!
Vidyalankar is definitely headed for an amazingly bright future!!
