Student Testimonials

Akhiya Sanal
R&D Associate Engineer, Microgrids & Distributed Generation – Battery, ABB

I did both my B.Tech and M.Tech at Amrita. 6 years, I learned a lot from Professors, fellow students and even the workers, the good culture imbibed in them. The green lusty campus have always driven the good spirit in me. The facilities are impeccable and the support from everyone has made me grow as a better person.

Rahul Balachandran
Project Trainee, Bosch

I feel that Amrita, true to its illustrious history and cultural heritage, delivers on its promise of providing a rich, intellectually stimulating world- class engineering education. I can vouch from my undergraduate and graduate experience at this university for the fact that the exposure you get from Amrita helps you evolve from being an individual to a professional. Everyday during classroom discussions with leading academicians, it creates something that we fondly call the “Aha” moment.

Keerthy P.
Post Graduate Engineering Trainee at L&T ECC

Amrita has given the stage for a beautiful transition from just acquiring knowledge to being intelligent. It has aptly encapsulated the serenity of nature with the hustle of a university. It has created a beautiful learning experience with state of the art laboratories and erudite professors. My heartfelt thanks to the University for giving me the capability to fly.

VijayaRaghavan S.
(BTech EEE – 2007-11; MTech Power Electronics – 2015-17) Control Design Engineer – FACTS, ABB GISPL, Chennai

I have done both my UG and PG at Amrita School of Engineering – Coimbatore campus. The lab sessions were very tough and demanding that I learnt my basics from these lab sessions. I was also given a free hand to try mini projects on my own and the professors and lab assistants were equally encouraging. Added advantages being the serene campus and friendly behaviour of the professors, I am very happy that I chose Amrita for my professional studies.
