Virtusa-Pega-University Connect Program

Virtusa Corporation, Platinum Partner with Pegasystems, announces the Head Start Program for engineering colleges to improve the readiness of students in BPM Technology with the aegis of Pegasystems before entering into Corporate.

Vishnu Institute of Technology is one of the five Premier Institutions in the world which is awarded with Virtusa - "Center of Excellence" & is the first college which inaugurated the center of excellence.

The center of excellence was inaugurated by Sri R Sowmya Narayan, Vice-President (Pega Practice), Virtusa Corporation. He explained how all over the globe the Pega experts are numbered around 6000, and our students would be joining this elite group. It is one of the best starts for any career in IT industry because the demand for PEGA expert is going to be very high throughout the next decade. They may also get the onsite job opportunities much earlier than other students working in usual domains. He also congratulated the selected students and the Department for being a part of this one in a kind training program. Mr. R. Srinivasa Raju and Mr. S. Adinarayana, who had undergone a three month long PEGA training in Virtusa Hyderabad and had also been instrumental in developing the course contents for the upcoming training modules, were also thanked by the Vice President Sri Sowmya Narayan for their continued efforts in shaping up this center of excellence.

Pega Training

A value addition program "Training on BPM & PEGA Tool" is being introduced to IV B.Tech students (who are selected by Virtusa in campus recruitment) in association with Virtusa Corporation which improves the readiness of the students when they join industry. The course is supplemented by practicals using PEGA tool. This is a unique program available in very few colleges across the nation, where the students can develop applications in less time.

Students will be trained through both In-house and External training programmes, workshops and extracurricular schemes.

Smart representations (such as embeddings, graphical models, discretizations) are useful models that allow the abstraction of data within a well-defined mathematical formalism. The representations we aim at are conceptual abstractions of real world phenomena (such as sensor reading, causal dependencies, social interactions) into the world of statistics and discrete mathematics in such a way that the powerful tools developed in those areas are available for complex analyses in a simple and elegant manner.

Big Data Lab is established with 20 Systems. We made Hadoop Cluster with these 20 Systems. Here we are giving training for more than 30 students every year on Big Data tools apart from curriculum. We are also working on Apache Spark as well. Student training is on Hadoop Administrator or Developer. Administrator training is configuring Big Data tools Hadoop, Spark, Pig, Hive.. etc. Developer training on some tools MapReduce, Spark using Scala, Pig Latin Script, Hive database, MongoDB etc.

Our faculty are also moving into Big data rapidly by attending workshops and using Moocs. They started doing reasearch on Big data and data science.

Assistive Technology Lab (ATL)

The Assistive Technology Lab (ATL) in Vishnu Institute of Technology,Bhimavaram,West Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh which is in collaboration with UMass, Lowell is a part of Sri Vishnu Educational Society and is a vision of Mr. K. V. Vishnu Raju, the Chairman of SVES, to utilize the skills of every engineering department of the college for the development of Assistive Technology.

During his visit to many universities in the United States, one thing that ignited his mind was the Assistive Technology Program at University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Assitive Technology Lab in VIT is thus a result of his progressive thinking, which paved the way for a MOU between the University of Massachusetts and VIT. He initiated the program by inviting Professor Alan Rux, founder of the Assistive Technology Program at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, USA to VIT.

Assistive Technology Lab was successfully established in the year 2012 at Vishnu Institute of Technology.ATL works for a very unique and a noble cause of designing projects by the students of VIT to benefit the differently-abled. This is small but a definite step to mainstream people with disabilities into society.

Assistive Technology Lab at VIT is setup in a very peaceful and ambient atmosphere with high end personal computers with Internet connectivity and sophisticated electronic components like CRO, RPS, micro-controllers and also imported electronic components that are unavailable in India, thus ensuring high productivity. According to Prof. Alan Rux, engineering students all over the world should be encouraged to undertake various projects in the field of Assistive Technology and make its impact felt.

ATL Activities Schedule

At the starting of the ATL we have taken the students based on their performance shown in the four rounds of tests conducted in the ATL

Round-1: Written test on core subjects
Round-2: Circuit analysis
Round-3: Test logical thinking ability
Round-4: Capability in solving the problems

Heighlights
  • Conducting Bridge course nearly for a month on different subjects related to ATL (EDC, MPMC, STLD, Electrical Machines, Embedded C, Testing and Development Tools, Analog Discovery kit).
  • Client Visit and taking the inputs for their requirements
  • Brain storming sessions to identify the solutions for the client problems
  • Design, implementation and testing of the prototype model.
  • Donated to the clients on Dec-3rd of every year.
