College: Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore




Review: Vellore Institute Of Technology- A review
Review By: Siddharth Das    Review Date: 21 Apr 2013   

Location

Vellore is located about 130km from Chennai and 210 km from Bangalore. It is an extremely well connected town owing to the proximity with these two megacities. The climate is moderate during most parts of the year. But it can get extremely hot in the summers.

Infrastructure

VIT boasts of one the best looking campuses in India. The college is a photographers delight. Lab facilities are pretty good too. There are enough machines and computers in the labs and they are well maintained. The library is huge and has a good collection of books on every subject. Hostels are comfortable and students can also opt for air conditioned rooms too. The mess food is just about edible but the food courts and restaurants inside the college are excellent both in terms of quality of food and price.

Faculty

There has been an increase in the number of professors with PHDs. But a lot of the professors lack teaching skills. A common way to go about the semester is to grill the class through dull slides and prepare them for the semester exams. Creativity and passion is not what you will find in most of the professors. There has been the introduction of "project based learning" though which is increasing the research output among undergraduates .

Placements

Placements are excellent in terms of pay packages in the CSE and IT branch, average in the case of mechanical, ECE and EEE and mostly abysmal for branches like biotech, civil etc. Placements in the IT sector are assured though with companies like Accenture , Cognizant and Wipro being mass recruiters. VIT manages to get almost all its students placed.

Campus Crowd

Owing to the high intake, you will find the college a bit crowded. The VIT crowd is one of the most diverse and open crowds you will find. There are people from all parts of India. Students engage in a wide range of activities, academic and co-curricular. Also the boy-girl ratio is pretty good(better than most engineering colleges anyway).

What to do

Vellore doesn't have any malls, pubs or multiplexes. So it will take a little getting used to. The college has a large number of restaurants nearby though. Also Vellore is extremely close to a number of tourist destinations. Hence weekend trips are possible on a low budget.

It provides technical support in learning English to both faculties and students. Students are allowed to use computer labs in addition to their lab class, depending on the lab schedules.

Canteen facility

VIT has 2 canteens - 1. Main canteen, where only vegetarian items are provided. 2. Food court: It has 2 divisions: AC food court, where food will be served to the table. The ambience is good for treats. The other division is where we need to pay bills first and take our orders.

There are a variety of dishes available with good quality and reasonable quantity. Generally, it is crowded.

Apart from canteens, VIT has Nestle stall on two corners of VIT which provides yummy Maggi noodles and Nestle ice tea. There is one another food stall near Anna auditorium, where cup noodles and a couple of soup varieties are provided.

Students with a proper business project and innovations are encouraged and sponsored by the science and technology department of VIT. Also, it provides guidelines to receive funds from Government of India for their innovations.

VIT encourages both indoor and outdoor games with suitable grounds and equipment. Sports awards and scholarships are given every year to the students who show excellence in the field f sports.

Placements

VIT holds an astonishing placement record. which received the Limca National award for mass campus placements for the year 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

There are a lot of myths about VITU throughout the country. Some say its very expensive, others say its not recognized, according to some the job scope is not good after a VITU degree. well, let me clear this. VITU is a great choice because of following reasons:
i) Excellent infrastructure: definitely the strongest contender for the best campus in engg colleges in india.
ii) almost each and every faculty is a Ph.D or Masters from IITs, or Universities abroad.
iii) (Spec. for North Indians) quality of north indian food served here is far better than other colleges.
iv) the research facilities here are very good. there is a special UG Research program unlike any other college in India.
v) The academic system adopted is the same adopted by Global Universities.

VIT - I like because of infrastructure and greenery. I hope this is the first university to focus on maintaining plant nursery and ever-green campus.

Regarding the students career, placement and personal improvement, VIT provides a place to grow and chances to develop in all aspects. Its depend on the student whether they are moving in right path or not. if they are in right path, VIT is helping in most of the ways.

Review: VIT – Fully Flexible Credit System (FFCS)

Students prefer to make decisions on their own and plan their future by themselves. This helps employers to recruit students with multi-disciplinary competency plus leadership skills. Students ambition and demands of the workplace have become highly discrete.

VIT University offers the Fully Flexible Credit System (FFCS).

FFCS provides interest to students with skills like decision making, time management and leadership skills Instead of following the same usual and dull algorithm to pass the college.

What is FFCS?

Students can split the courses and register of their own choice and alter the pace of learning within the broad framework of academic course and credit requirements.The slot-based timetable, coupled with internet based Course Registration in each semester, helps individual students to choose the course they want to study, time of attending a class and even the teacher. Thus, students can make their own timetable and each student in a class may have a different timetable of his / her own.

Under FFCS, students choose courses from a ‘basket of courses' classified under University Core, University Elective, Program Core and Program Elective. Students are encouraged to choose interdisciplinary courses from other engineering schools which will help them develop additional skills.Important courses will also be made available in both semesters for students who require it.

How to register?

1) Registration of courses with preferred slots and faculty within mentioned time.
I timing is around 10:00 – 11:30 am for the course registration of 4th year students.
II timing is around 12:00 – 1:30 pm for the course registration of 3rd year students.
III timing is around 2:00 – 3:30 pm for the course registration of 2nd year students.
IV timing is around 4:00 – 5:30 pm for the course registration of 1st year students.

2) Course categories
i) University Core
ii) Program Core
iii) University Elective
iv) Program Elective

3) Types of classes
i) Theory
ii) Lab

4) Choose a soft skill course then other courses will appear to register
5) Consider minimum and maximum credits per semester
6) Each facutly has 2 slots with 65 seats in a slot

Things to remember :

In FFCS you can view the slots/timings in which a particular faculty is available and choose the slots that suits you best considering your credits. Since the number of seats in each faculty's class is limited, there will be challenges to choose favorite faculty or slots.
