Udupi, October 2: The Shri Madhwa Vadiraja Institute of Technology and Management (SMVITM) promoted by Shri Sode Vadiraja Matha located in Bantakal Udupi has taken a new step on the path to excellence in the academic sector. Having obtained an A rating from the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) in 2019, SMVITM has been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation New Delhi. These two accreditation statuses are awarded after evaluation of the quality of the education offered by the establishment. It should be noted that the SMVITM is the only institution in the Karnataka coastal region to achieve these two prestigious accreditations in just 11 years of existence. These recognitions reflect the quality of education given to students and, therefore, its commitment to providing a holistic education to its students.
At SMVITM, in addition to the existing BE courses (Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electronic and Communication Engineering and Mechanical Engineering), two new courses namely Artificial Intelligence and Data Science and Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have been introduced from this academic year. After visualizing the high demand for qualified IT professionals in the fields of machine learning and data science, these two new courses have been introduced. It is expected that graduates of these two new courses would find many opportunities in the industry.
The establishment makes every effort to ensure the placement of each student entering the SMVITM. Regular placement training is provided to students by professional trainers on a regular basis. As a result, our students have been successfully placed in reputable companies like Infosys, TCS, Wipro, Amazon, HP, SAP Labs, etc. Despite the pandemic, during the academic year 2020-21, we were able to place nearly 85% of the students in the branches of the circuit.
In accordance with the new national education policy, the undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree would be extended to a four-year course and would be offered at colleges identified by VTU Belagavi. It is a pride to say that, SMVITM is one of those colleges where the university has requested our consent to start this new course on our campus. SMVITM will begin this course as directed by VTU.
