Placed in INTEL

“VIT AP university has my sincerest gratitude. My success has been largely attributed to it. My experience with it has shaped my ability to succeed in even the toughest of circumstances. My recent selection was in Intel under the category of Super Dream internship, which will potentially turn into a full-time job at 18.45 CTC. Throughout the curriculum, projects and assignments have always been emphasized, so you gain an edge over the usual theoretical and practical learning. Taking advantage of the resources provided with the help of faculty here helped me to ensure the efficient delivery of knowledge. During our time at the university, our professors guided us in acquiring the methods essential to learning about new technologies and their application to reality. I would like to thank the PAT (Placement and Training) office in providing me with opportunity and skill required with study materials and guidance. My sincere thanks goes to all the professors, classmates, and friends who contributed to this endeavor.”
