Department of Electronics and Computer Science firmly believes that Project-based learning is the key to effectively engage students in technical activities develop technical mindset and provide practical solutions to real-life problems. In its constant endeavour to carry out quality projects, the project team of the department has a very well-defined plan to integrate Project Based Learning (PBL) in all its courses.
Department of Electronics and Computer Science provides a pool of In-House Internships to Students in variety of domains, that can provide solutions to the real life problems. The problems are designed such that they help the students to improve programming skills as well as their hands-on experience. Students are guided to use the tools and techniques relevant to the current industry trends. Recent ideas that have been implemented by our students are based the use of on Arduino, Embedded Systems, IOT and many other development platforms. On an average 70-80 % of the students are involved in the internship activities. We also encourage internships at various industries. To name a few are TIFR, BARC, Mazagon Dock Ltd, BSNL, Doordarshan, BRIT, L&T, Indian railways, IIT Bombay, Bharat Petroleum, Mercedez Benz and many more.
Internships are thus a regular feature of the curriculum, where students spend their time constructively and from the feedbacks received, it is an enriching experience for them, which adds value to their engineering education.
Placement Cell in VIT plays a vital role in creating the eminent placement record for the institute. Placement drives are golden opportunities that every student eagerly waits for.
