My son studies engineering in VIT, Vellore. he is currently doing his 3rd year B Tech in Computer Science.

We carefully considered several colleges including PES, Manipal Institute of Technology, VIT etc. PES and VIT were shortlisted at the end.

We chose VIT over PES for a few reasons:

1. VIT has got a larger campus with more international exposure.

2. PES is highly academic oriented but VIT has a wide range of activities, clubs and opportunities for students.

3. VIT ranks much higher than VIT in national and international rankings.

4. Since PES is located in Bangalore, a lot of IT companies from Bangalore come for campus recruitments in PES. From that perspective, PES is a better choice for an average student. However, people are looking for more opportunities and companies beyond Bangalore, VIT is probably a better choice.

We finally chose VIT Vellore primarily because of the pure academic nature of PES. However, please note that PES is not a wrong choice at all. If you are looking for a campus that focuses on academics and discipline, PES is a good choice.

In VIT, attendance in classes is not mandatory if you score well in the exams. My son usually skips a lot of classes and stays in the hostel to focus on programming and the various coding clubs he is part of.

VIT also has a good start-up culture. A lot of senior students start their own startups. Even if they don't survive a long time, it still gives a lot of exposure and opportunities for students. My son is part of 2 startups from his second year onwards.

Both PES and VIT University, which I have personally encountered, are top possibilities for engineering courses, in my opinion. PES University has excellent facilities, a broad range of course offerings, and a distinguished faculty. A vast variety of organizations and extracurricular activities make up the university's fantastic campus life. The college also features a cutting-edge library with access to the most recent publications, equipment, and books.

The facilities at VIT University are equally spectacular, featuring cutting-edge labs, contemporary classrooms, and fully furnished lecture halls. The college also offers top-notch student support services, and a committed team is available to assist students with both their academic and personal requirements.

The campus life at VIT is also very active, with lots of sporting and cultural events in addition to its well-known yearly fest. For engineering studies, PES University and VIT University are also top alternatives. Every college has different characteristics, therefore before choosing one, it's vital to take into account your own requirements and preferences.

I can state that both PES and VIT University offered engineering programmes, and that each has pros and drawbacks. The finest faculty for me was at PES University, where I found knowledgeable professors and support personnel who were always willing and able to assist me with my coursework. Also, the campus was well-equipped with contemporary facilities and resources, making it simple for me to get access to the things I needed for my studies.

Yet, VIT University was a terrific place to be, with a big student body and lots of social events. Also, the college's placement programme was excellent, and many of my colleagues were able to land fantastic employment with reputable businesses.

However, both institutions of higher learning provide excellent opportunities for learning, so choosing one over the other really comes down to personal preferences. In the end, I discovered that PES and VIT Universities were both excellent choices for getting an engineering degree.
