VIT-Andhra Pradesh (A.P.) Vice-President Sekar Viswanathan said it in his presentation during the CRDA review meeting chaired by the Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday, according to an official release.

A total of 13 classrooms, three computer centres, a machine shop, an electronics lab, a mathematics lab and a physics lab would be available to the students. Besides, the campus would have a fully air-conditioned and automated library. Free Wi-fi would be given to students, faculty and staff and Wi-fi enabled buses would be operated for hostellers from their Guntur apartment-hostels to the campus, the press release said.

VIT-AP has collaborated with Rochester Institute of Technology in curriculum-planning and establishment of laboratories. A concept called ‘Engineering Clinics’ is introduced to give hands-on engineering experience to students through Project Based Learning (PBL).

Representatives of the industry have been involved in framing the curriculum, which is being benchmarked against world-class universities such as Purdue University.
