“Education is the most powerful instrument which can be used to change the society as a whole”
Vivekananda College of Engineering & Technology (VCET), Puttur, aims to provide holistic approach to shape the overall personality of every student by imbibing the spirit of Engineering discipline with moral values.
VCET, established in 2001, achieved a distinct status of a premier college in coastal area in Dakshina Kannada District due to its strong emphasis on teaching & learning through experimentation & exposure. Started with UG courses in Computer Science & Engg. and Electronics & Communication Engg., the institute currently runs with 5 UG programmes & a PG programme affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belagavi, recognized by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and approved by the Government of Karnataka. Due to the need of the current trend, we are starting a new programme in UG, namely, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning. Current annual intake of UG & PG programmes is in excess of 500.
Institute is located amidst a sprawling campus of 25 acres, full of greenery, the hilly picturesque and an eco-friendly ambience. It has splendid building and state of the art facilities.
VCET has well qualified & dedicated faculty with concern for students. Faculty with commitment to education & scholarly activities achieved many a tasks like, publishing a journal of their own – ‘VCET Science & Technology Journal’. Competent faculty helped VCET, to adopt a process approach towards academics – ISO & Outcome Based Education (OBE) framework to align with the world’s technical requirement. VCET faculty use new pedagogical practices in Teaching–Learning process to teach and train our students in a unique and creative way. Involvement of faculty in research work lead to recognition of 4 research centers under VTU.
There is a sense of vibrancy in the campus which is bustling with activities. Over 200 Curricular & extra- Curricular activities are conducted every year. A special feature of VCET is participation of students in academic governance.
Our motto is to provide quality education and thereby enabling the students to become globally competent. Education is not an act of acquiring knowledge but learning a skill to lead life and forming one’s personality. Keeping this in mind, VCET has initiated various value add-on courses and soft skill programmes to mould the students by blending soft skill with the academic knowledge so that they are readily employable by the companies/ industries. VCET is therefore the preferred destination for companies/ industries looking for young & bright graduates and it has proven record of more than 400+ students getting placed every year.
I strongly believe that the students will make use of these opportunities and best facilities to emerge as the competent professionals and great human beings. Let all of us strive for the attainment of excellence and holistic development of young minds.
