I joined in Vel Tech as a civil engineering student in the year 2011 and now I found that it was the best decision I ever took. I would like to thanks Vel Tech management, Vel Tech teaching staff, non teaching staff and my friends for their continuous support, suggestions and advices which I got from them.

Believe me because of you all I am here. Thank you very much. I would like to tell to my juniors as they are like my brothers and sisters that Vel Tech has given you a vast platform, just you have to get your way and college will put you there. So use every little opportunities you get from here.

At last I am make a promise to the Vel Tech university that I will make you proud wherever I will go.

Thank you very much
