While inaugurating the institute Hon’ble Vice Chancellor said, “Academic Autonomy brings with it extreme responsibility and challenges”.

He also said that “VIIT with its culture of learning and research had made its mark and has the potential to make a success of autonomy and to be a role model for other such institutes aspiring for autonomy.”  “Having an institute with a mission to share and demonstrate the best practices in teaching and learning,” he said, “makes VIIT an invaluable asset for upgrading the quality of education across India.”

“We think that becoming autonomous is another feather in the cap of VIIT” said Dr. Bipin Sule COO Bract. “This will teach the students to excel not only academically but also focus on overall development of their personality by participating in extra and co-curricular activities. It is these life skills that will truly equip students to face global challenges.
