Student Testimonials

Megha S. Kuma
Pursuing PhD in Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham

I would confidently suggest, Communication and Signal processing stream of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore to any student planning for their masters as I consider myself extremely fortunate to be a part of this branch here at Amrita, which is undoubtedly the best private University. I got an insight into various software. I could learn a lot and hence improve myself. I got excellent faculty support and I thank my teachers for the same as well as lab facilities which helped me improve my knowledge.

Sreeraj S. J.
Pursuing Ph.D – IIT Madras

Amrita provides good learning environment and so many hardware & software tools. We are given exposure to research oriented works and got good insights to subjects which helped me to get an admission at IIT Madras

Meenu S. Kumar
Currently with TCS

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have enrolled for the M.Tech Program ‘Communication and Signal Processing’. First reason is that it is one of the best combinations which can be thought of and it is not available in many of the prestigious institutions even now, I got an insight into many new software. Well developed labs too helped a lot to get hands on as well.
