    GITAM is one of the best private universities in the state of Andhra Pradesh. This institute initially started as an engineering college in Visakhapatnam of Andhra Pradesh. The main person involved in starting this institute is an industrialist who was an MP from the same district. The institute hired the service of many eminent retired faculty of Andhra University and got a very good name and established well in the state. Later the college started other courses also and went to the level of a Deemed to be University.

    As the institute acquired a good name in South India, the management opened two other campuses. One in Hyderabad and the other one in Bangalore. The speciality of this institute is its R & D activities. The institute engaged the service of retired professors and established contacts with many industries and qualified people in the industry. This interaction is making the students know the skill set required for the application of their knowledge and making them ready to take up the jobs by the time they are coming out. A good student who wants to do good quality research work can opt for a seat in this institute.
