At the Amritapuri campus, students of engineering, even at the undergraduate level, are encouraged to participate in research. Senior students of electronics and electrical engineering have conducted research in ways to reduce consumption of electric power in electronic equipment and have presented their work at conferences in Malaysia, Dubai, China and Europe.

The remarkable thing about this is that these Amrita B.Tech. students have often found themselves in the company of mostly M.Tech. and Ph. D. students at these international conferences. Their papers are selected after careful screening, testimony to their love for the subject and original research, and willingness to work hard even beyond that prescribed in the curriculum.

Yet another example is Avinash Joshi, final-year B.Tech. student of Information Technology at the Amritapuri Campus. In June 2009, he was chosen as the only student from India, and one of five world-wide to attend the JavaOne 2009 Developer Conference in San Francisco; his travel and participation expenses were fully sponsored by Sun Microsystems.
