I joined engineering with a lot dreams when I had just completed my high school. I was in the impression that university will definitely not provide the same level of care / concern of an individual student like how a school would do. But Vel Tech proved me completely wrong. Each and every professor remembered me by name and does till date. I am very much proud to have been a part of the automotive dept.

The teaching was not text book based. Our labs taught us how fiddle with the components and provided us hands on experience.

I can proudly say or even challenge anyone who can show such a institute like Vel Tech which cares for its students even after they have completed their education. Any sort of communication is very systematic and does not take a lot of time.

I would cherish my 4 years of study till my last beat and would recommend (my Vel Tech) to any student who wishes to grow not only technically but also as a responsible individual to the society.
