“When I hear “Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham” there comes excitement, happiness, joy, irreplaceable and of course irrecoverable memories, events. My dream of designing structures, as an engineer has come true only because of my own prestigious institution. My growth after joining Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is found to be both professional and personal. Now am standing before my parents and fellow colleagues with humanity and courage which is a gift from my institution. I learnt essential things such as respect to my own effort, self confidence and patience from here. Hoping to reach heights with the blessings of my institution and all faculties who were helpful to identify myself. To precise, I still feel I chose the best place for my post graduation. ”
