ABOUT AMRITA

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is a dream come true, a dream nursed by Mata Amritanandamayi to have a centre of excellence in learning for the benefit of all. The dream became a reality in 1994 when the School of Engineering was opened in an obscure village, Ettimadai, at the foothills of Bouluvanpatty ranges of Western Ghats in the Coimbatore District of Tamil Nadu. Amrita University was the youngest university to be awarded with an 'A' grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), an autonomous body established in 1994 by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India to assess and accredit institutions of higher education in the country.

 

Amrita University has been ranked in the following International ranking lists

  • No.1 Private University among the Asian Universities by the Times Higher Education (THE) & Quacquarelli Symonds (QS).
  • Times Higher Education Top 200 BRICS and Emerging Economies Ranking 2016.
  • Amrita is ranked 19th in the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) ranking of Ministry of Human Resource Development published in 2016.
  • Times Higher Education Top 1000 World University Rankings (2015-2016) – Amrita is ranked in the bracket 601-800 in this international ranking of universities worldwide.
