Message as Alumni:

01238304 was the number assigned as a student in Diploma Civil Engineering at the Vidyabharti Trust Polytechnic, Umrakh while admitted in the year 1998. As a 12+ student, and General Secretary in the year 1999-2000, days we spent at institute are unforgettable. Cherishing moments and memories of several instances with almost all teaching and non-teaching staff members are as fresh as of yesterday. How to learn and apply knowledge was key take-away for me while studying at VBTP. Subsequent application of the developed insightfulness resulted in consistent achievements. The fragrance and serene surroundings in the campus region are highly missed that left the first impression while meeting the authorities at the institute while requesting admission on NRI Quota. The VBTP changed the life down to upside leaving me indebted to the institute for the lifetime. Impossible to narrate each of the contributions, love & care received from each of the teaching and non-teaching staff members and warmth from batch mates, instances and incidents. Indeed, I place the two-year life-span spent at VBTP as golden years of life by several means. “Thank you” word is felt feeble against the contributions of VBTP in my life…!

  • It was such a remarkable experience, here at BVPIT. What I can clearly admit is, this institute —and the Civil engineering department, of course — not only teaches you what Civil engineering is all about, but rather it, from time to time, nourishes you with the knowledge of what Civil has to offer to this world and what are the prospects! It was a great learning curve for me, especially, and in a hindsight, I am amazed how it opened my naïve eyes to the real hopeful world at such a young age.
  • All the facilities here are so helpful, they would always keep students performance graph in check; always makes sure that students are on the same page as them, when it comes to any changes in methods of learning or any other activities that goes around.
  • All in all, this is one of the best places to learn, improve, grow and find freedom on your own. All of these aided me to be the better version of myself. Practical approach, decision-making and time management skills have always been a key feature I have learnt from here. And I am so grateful for that. Once again, I would like to say, where I stand today and where I want to go, has so much influence from the Civil engineering department of BVPIT.It’s truly an honor to be Alumni of such institute. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
