I want my students to achieve greater milestones in their academics and other verticals of life
I’ve been working in this industry for more than 19 Years. The key factors that keep me connected to the Education sector primarily is to impart the knowledge to the students and help them to excel. I want every student of mine to achieve greater milestones in their academics and in their future. I love to contribute my level best to help the students to grow.
Leadership requires patience which comes with influence and experience
Leadership is something which needs a high level of patience, which comes with the influence and experience. I always trust my team that they can deliver the given assignment under the timelines. I take the responsibility of the failures and give the success credit always to the team. I worked in many institutions and with many teams, they always give a lot of respect and say that I’m the best leader that they have ever met.
We provide quality education to students via empowerment to make them industry-ready
We provide quality education to students via empowerment of the students to make them industry-ready. The word of mouth publicity from the students is the main marketing strategy of our college. Our students are our brand ambassadors. We aim to focus on every individual student and give the knowledge to the best.
VCET has made it one of its priorities to offer its students, by all means, to learn the necessary competences to survive in a fast-changing, digital and technological world. Anyone lacking these competences in today’s workforce is considered to be illiterate. Our college has invested in a technological infrastructure, Wi-Fi over its premises, and an e-Platform which every teacher can use to upload important notes and information, and every student can personally access in his/her own time. In addition to this, students are guided to make use of all technological means responsibly.
Apart from the studies, there are student engagement activities which kick out the negativity and help the student to stay focused
It’s the environment of the college which makes the students take admission and succeed in their academics. We are best in making the student comfortable, apart from the studies we do a lot of student engagement activities which kicks out the negativity and helps the student to stay focused towards the goals.

Our fee structure and other amenities are pro-students and we welcome everyone with open arms
Our doors are always open in welcoming the students from different races and economic backgrounds. To the fact, the fee structure of VECT for all the courses is by considering that every student should be able to afford and get access to quality education.
Students should attain focus and patience which they lack in the current generation
Students lose their interest and get deviated in many ways. Students should have patience and a vision which I think is lagging in this generation. One should have a goal, focus and then expect the results to fall in place.
We make sure the emotional attachment with every individual student and their parents, know the student interest and help them to achieve their goals.
When a teacher is personally attached to the student, it helps elevate their standard of response as well
It’s not about the quality of education colleges should concentrate on solely, but the priority should be to stay in touch with every individual student and parent. When the teacher is personally attached to the student, it automatically grabs the interest and helps them stay focused in the classroom.
I enjoy teaching young students the adversities of life and how to tackle them
When I came to VCET my vision was very clear that I should give my best to see every student grow and they get the best career advice. I enjoy being with the young passionate students and teaching them how to face the challenges that they might face in the future.
I feel very proud for myself and satisfying because over these 19 Years of my experience I have helped many students by giving the right career advice. Many of my students are leading their lives happily and even today seeking my advice whenever they come across the problems. I’ll keep doing this in the future as well.
Our responsibility is to provide education blended with latest technologies in all the verticals
