11May 2004 — Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham
Before Amrita Institute of Technology and Science was under the auspices of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, it was affiliated with Anna University in Madras. As such, the two batches enrolled at AITEC are still associated with Anna University, and their exam scores are measured against the exam scores of the other 227 colleges which are also affiliated with Anna University.
In the results posted for the May 2004 examinations in the Bachelor’s of Engineering and Bachelor’s of Technology programs, students at AITEC finished first out of all 227 colleges associated with Anna University. Out of 1005 AITEC students who appeared for the exam, 809 passed, giving AITEC a pass rate of 76.7%, compared to an average pass rate of 41.39% for all Anna University colleges.
AITEC’s stellar performance is representative of the level of academic excellence throughout Amrita University. This goes to show that the deemed university status recently conferred on Amrita Institutions by the UGC is well deserved. This young university is marching forward with a misson: to be in the forefront of the universities of India, both in academic excellence and cultural values.
Congratulations to the students of AITEC.
