It is my great pleasure to invite all the stake holders to this esteemed institution.
The Vivekananda College of Engineering & Technology (VCET), Puttur, believes in imbibing the spirit of engineering discipline in every student who enters our institute.
VCET, established in 2001, achieved a distinct status of a premier college in coastal area in Dakshina Kannada due to its strong emphasis on learning through experimentation & exposure. Started with UG courses in Computer Science & Engg. and Electronics & Communication Engg., the institute currently running with 4 UG programmes & 3 PG programmes affiliated to Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU), Belgavi, recognized by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and approved by the Government of Karnataka. Current annual intake of UG & PG programmes is in excess of 500.
The 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 to academics – ISO & outcome based education(OBE) framework to align with the worlds 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. A special feature of VCET is, participation of students in academic governance.
Our moto 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 be the preferred destination for companies/industries looking for young & bright graduates and it has proven record of more than 400+ students get placed.
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.
