Amrita school of engineering has well trained staff members who are available to the students and are most helpful . The campus is absolutely beautiful .you will love the campus for its serenity. climate is also pleasant here. It is not extremely hot like other places in South. coming to mess food, it's not that bad . you see variety of food. it is good compared to other hostels. there are good chances to improve your extracurricular activities. gyms are really well maintained . you also have club for music and dance ( ragasudha and natyasudha). what I felt so stressful is when you are planning to go home during class hours , you have to get permission from class advisor , incharge and then get sealed . But this is a good place for enjoying and gaining knowledge. If you didn't get any NIT / IIT I prefer you coming to Amrita. M ainly there are CIR ( corporate relations) classes where they teach Apti and verbal to zeal the students in a extreme corporative way. Enjoy learning here:)

I joined this college because of really good reviews from my friends and relatives. I really didn't know what to expect when joining here so I kept my expectations quite low. But when I came here I understood what a good decision I had made by joining here. The faculty is excellent, the facilities provided are sufficient and the hostel life is something I enjoy so much.

This is the best MBA College among private colleges in India. The college is world class when it comes to infrastructure. It has quality facilities like swimming pool, gym, the library of high quality. The college is spread over an area of 200 acres. Good hostel facility with pure vegetarian food is something that should be specified. Anyone visiting this college would be fascinated by its beauty.

About College:

The Amrita Group of Institutions is one of the most well – known and respective brands in South India. Its footprint stretches across three different states in the region – Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka. The base though is in the city of Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu. It is one of the biggest and most heritage- rich cities across the region. The engineering college was the first to be set up back in 1994. Later the other schools were started. These schools are in the fields of- Business, Biotechnology, Communication and Arts & Sciences. The entire group is managed by the Mata Amritanandamayi Math. Mata Amritanandamayi is one of the most respected spiritual leaders in the region. She is lovingly called “Amma” here.

That is the reason that the social imperatives have been given substantial focus on. One of these initiatives is the Amrita SeRVE. This was started in 2013 on Amma’s 60th birth anniversary. in line with the UNSDGs (United Nations Sustainable Development Goals). The focus of this initiative is to help rural inhabitants cope better with their surroundings, and prosper through models of self- reliance. Another initiative is Ayudh. It is an annual leaders’ training summit. The four pillars supporting the Ayudh movement are- social service, green initiatives, cultural heritage and personal empowerment. The third such move is known as “embracing the world”. As the name suggests, this involves social benefits and empowerment on international frontiers. To cite an instance, Amma was part of the Interfaith Summit to Protech Children Online held in Abu Dhabi. 

The Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham (University) itself was founded in the year 2003. Its main 400- acre campus is in Coimbatore, with the other campuses being located in Kochi (Kerala), Mysuru (Karnataka), Bengaluru (Karnataka) and in Amritapuri (Kerala). There are a total of 12 schools that function across the four campuses. These schools ae in the fields of – Biotechnology, Arts & Sciences, Ayurveda, Business, Dentistry, Communication, Education, Medicine, Pharmacy, Social Work, Engineering and Nursing. Not all schools or departments are active in all campuses. Nursing for example only runs in Kochi and Ayurveda only in Amritapuri. Five of these programmes are run at the Coimbatore centre. 

The School of Communication in Coimbatore runs four courses. There is the BA in Mass Communication to begin with and an MA in the same line. Film studies are an important component to these courses. The Amrita Vishwa University complies completely with the UNESCO guidelines on the curriculum for journalism as stated. A PG Diploma is also on offer primarily targeted at students seeking to become professionals in the print media. A doctoral programme is also available in communication. The School of Social Work offers the programme called MSW (Masters in Social Work). Several NGOs and international agencies recruit post this degree. 

The School of Arts and Sciences has courses being offered at the UG, PG and doctoral levels. At the UG level, the only course on offer is the BA in English Language and Literature. An MA is also available for this course. The Doctoral programme can be pursued in either the Sciences or in Humanities & Social Sciences. The maximum number of courses within this school at the Coimbatore campus are at the master’s level. Besides the MA programme already described, there are     4 MSc. programmes on offer. These are in – Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Applied Statistics & Data Analytics. Dual degrees and integrated programmes can also be pursued across the schools at the Amrita Vishwa University. 

The Coimbatore- based Amrita Vishwa University has long been on the forefront for international collaboration with other universities or research institutions. These collaborations could be for student exchange, faculty exchange, study tours or research projects. Collaborators exist across all continents. The diversity of collaborators is reflected in the fact that the Amrita Vishwa University has partners even in Africa and South America. They are the Durban University of Technology in South Africa and the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. They have three such partners in Australia and two of their collaborators in Asia are the Japan- based University of Tokyo and the Doshisha University. The majority of these partners are in Europe and North America. In Europe, prominent examples include- the Malardalen University in Sweden, Sofia University in Bulgaria, Ecole Central Paris in France, Politecnico di Milano in Italy, Universidad de Sevilla in Spain, Aachen University in Germany, University of Turku in Final, University of York in the UK, University of Porto in Portugal and the University of Twente in the Netherlands among several others. In North America, some such allies include- the University of Maryland, Wright University, Marymount University, Clemson University, University of New Mexico, Columbia University, University of Wyoming, University of Central Florida, University of Missouri, University of Buffalo, Ryerson University, Oakland University, North-eastern University and University of Georgia among others. 

The Amrita Vishwa University is also involved in several international research projects. There is a joint research with the Halmstad University in Sweden on embedded systems. Another is the European Commission funded Stabiliz- Energy. Flood Evac is a collaboration with seven German universities. The university is also involved in a project to create green technology that will treat wastewater from industries and municipalities before they reach streams or rivers. And finally, there is the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation joint funded project to kill pathogens in faecal waste using viral agents. All this has helped the Amrita Vishwa University earn extremely high ranks across platforms. The QS World University Rankings 2018, ranked the university at number 168th in all of Asia. The NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) 2018 meanwhile placed the university as 15th best in India and the 8th best among all universities.
