I feel great studying at Vel Tech. I got a very good support from the Placement and Training officers. Getting placed in two prominent companies, is like a dream come true. Happy for the placement, feel proud to be a Veltechian.

S.V.Charan Sai ( VtU 5362 ), ECE, Wipro, Mindtree

I really feel honored to be a part of the Vel Tech family. The interview went on for 30 minutes, where I was examined on the basics of my subject of interest. The interview questions were primly to test my knowledge in C LANGAUGE and my logical skills on how I implement program. Thanks all once again.

Gudiseva Sai Kiran (VtU 4847), ECE, Mu Sigma

I was so excited that I was able to participate the placement drive. The drive started with a very informative pre-placement talk, followed by other interview process like online aptitude test which comprises of quantitative, logical and essay writing. Then the online pseudo code test with 20 multiple choice questions. The shortlisted students were allowed to appear for technical and personal interview. This experience was so exciting and the results were fulfilling for me.
