Vellore Institute of Technology Reviews (28)
By Najid Qadri (Class of 2020) , 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Since Vellore is in a remote location the nearest airport is in Chennai however the city is nice and it has everything needed to have fun.
Hostels are nice but the rooms could have been bigger and the academic facilities are top notch.
Fests, events, workshops, sports and everything else are very enjoyable and something to look forward to.
Me being in Internet of things which is upcoming in India gives me hope of getting a nice job and a salary package.
Teachers are nice and experienced however some teachers are just not as good but the lab assistants are very knowledgeable and helpful.

The campus is green, huge and eco-friendly. The market is nearby which is the usual hangout place.
The hostel is very good with all necessities. The food is good as well.
The college has many societies like dance, music, fashion, fine arts, creative writing, photography, dramatics, debating for all round development. The placements are good.
The placements are good here. The placement cell is very helpful in getting students placed successfully with decent packages.

Campus location is awesome, its type of a valley surrounded by mountains and greenery.
All the facilities provided are great.
India's largest tech fest happens here. This campus is the place where you learn more than just academics.
Super dream offers are here and the highest packages are like 35-40 LPA.
Excellent and experienced faculty members are here.

There aren't many food joints around the campus. Also the timing restrictions are abnormal.
The facilities are above average here which makes adjusting here very easy for everyone.
There are a huge number of clubs and chapters here which gives everyone equal opportunity to learn something new everyday.
The placement cell here makes sure everyone gets the best offer according to their qualifications.
The competition here motivates me the most and makes me become the best version of myself.

Bus stand is near , railway station is nearer. Some nice eating joints makes it even better. So yeah accessibility check.
It is good.
Yes very supportive for extracurricular, but all students efforts so 10/10 to crowd which makes this college life less hectic and more fun.

The nearest airport is in Chennai which is 4 hours via train. You can also take cabs from Chennai which are faster but will cost you. You can also travel via Bangalore. There's not much to see in Vellore, but it is close to places like Pondicherry and Kodaikanal. Regular buses ply to and fro all the above places from Vellore bus stand.
Hostels have 2/3/4/6 bedded rooms both AC and Non AC. Cleanliness is maintained throughout. 10GB of WiFi quota is given every month which is more than sufficient. For food, you have the options of North indian/south Indian and a special mess. The food quality is good. Academic facilities are top class with extremely well equipped Labs and equipment.
The amount of clubs and extracurricular activities happening in the campus is simply amazing. You have clubs/chapters which focus on technical aspects like IEEE, CSI, IETE, etc. To cultural ones like dramatics, dance, debate, MUN, music. There's a club that caters to every possible interest. We also have SAE teams which are working on REAL cars, planes, drones with which we compete on an international level. The sports facilities are great except you have to pay(2.5-3k / semester ) to use the indoor ones while the outdoor ones are free. We also have 2 fests, 1 technical and the other cultural. Riviera(the cultural) is a sight to behold. It's a 3 day fest with everything organised by the students.
Placements completely depend on the person's skill and the amount of preparation. While the mass recruiters hire with meagre salary packages, people have been placed in very good companies due to their hard work.
In the flexible credit system, you have ever an option to choose your faculty for every subject. While some teachers actually take an interest in the learning, with innovative assignments and interesting projects, many teachers couldn't care less about it. The main focus is not on actual learning but on scoring marks in the internal exams.
