About Us

About VIT University

VIT University was established with the aim of providing quality higher education on par with international standards. It persistently seeks and adopts innovative methods to improve the quality of higher education on a consistent basis. The campus has a cosmopolitan atmosphere with students from all corners of the globe. Experienced and learned teachers are strongly encouraged to nurture the students. The global standards set at VIT in the field of teaching and research spurs us on in our relentless pursuit of excellence. In fact, it has become a way of life for us. The highly motivated youngsters on the campus are a constant source of pride. Our Memoranda of Understanding with various international universities are our major strength. They provide for an exchange of students and faculty and encourage joint research projects for the mutual benefit of these universities. Many of our students, who pursue their research projects in foreign universities, bring high quality to their work and esteem to India and have done us proud. With steady steps, we continue our march forward.



About Centre for Nanotechnology Research

The Center for Nanotechnology Research at VIT University, Vellore was established in June 2008 and its faculties are actively engaged in teaching courses for the “M. Tech. Nanotechnology” programme and undertaking research projects for M. Tech. and Ph.D. Scholars. The M. Tech. Nano technology programme was initiated in 2006 by VIT University, Vellore and the University provided a generous support of about INR 13 million in setting up state-of-the-art nanomaterial characterization and synthesis facilities for the nanotechnology lab. The M. Tech. Nanotechnology programme also received financial support of INR 29.4 million from the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, New Delhi towards further enhancing infrastructure facilities of the nanotechnology laboratory and offering student fellowships and contingency grant for their research projects during the course. The center has received funds from various funding agencies like DST, DRDO, IEEE etc,. Our research is focused on various niche areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology and the faculty members of the center have published more than 100 research articles in International Journals. The centre has recently extended its facilities for external researchers on a consultancy basis.
