In terms of campus facilities, area and infrastructure, SRM takes the big lead with a lot more than what VIT (Chennai campus) has to offer.As the VIT Campus is new, quality of the classrooms, lecture halls would be fancy for a few years to come.But, as far as academics and exposure are concerned, I guess VIT takes a lead by giving the students options to choose their class timings, majority of their subjects and even their professors using the slot-based system.The quality of education, the level of the... view more

    Though both the universities are doing well to make their system on the top, SRM leads when it comes to mechanical engineering but with a small difference.The infrastructure when compared to both institutions is a bit old, which may be obvious but the same is not reflected in practice as both the colleges are spending huge funds to maintain it.Now, SRM has a separate large section of mechanical engineering and has more skilled and experienced faculties than VITEEE. Also, it has more active participation in many live events and competitions which contributes a lot to the development of mechanical aspirants.Here SRM has the facility if a studen... view more

Engineering Education is all about having practical skills and knowledge. Majority of the universities in India provide education just based on the university curriculum. This has hampered the engineering education. The two colleges SRM and VIT are always different from other private institutes which offer mechanical engineering.... view more

    VIT ranks among the top 6 private colleges nationwide, While SRM ranks at 11th position on the same list.

While VIT provides the same facilities it is certainly better at placements considering the past records and the highest packages achieved by students of VIT.Both universities provide equal opportunities for those who wish to study abroad in the future by means of programmes like a semester abroad, dual degree, Twinning Programme and various others. It all draws down to one thing if you want to enjoy your college life and don't want to it be... view more
