Profile of Vidyalankar School of Information Technology (VSIT)About VSIT
Vidyalankar School of Information Technology (VSIT) is a degree college approved byThe Govt.of Maharastra and affiliated to University of Mumbai, India.
Vidyalankar school of Information Technology was started in the year 2002 after having secured permission from Govt.of Maharastara and University of Mumbai. It has slowly gained popularity and today attracts top talent. It caters to students who have passed the Maharashtra State Board's HSC and desire to take up I.T/Mangement as their profession.
"Knowledge removes the lethargy of the intellect, invests truth in the speech, enhances the greatness and casts off sin, It cleanses the mind and spreads the fame all around. Tell me, what is not provided to a man, from the company of high thinking and noble souls."
Our Vision is to establish a leading centre of imparting Quality Education in the field of Science, Technology and Management with emphasis on:
* ensuring that students learn the fundamental concepts in various disciplines.
*motivating students to apply the Scientific & Technological knowledge to develop problem solving capabilities.
*making students aware of the societal and environmental needs with specific appreciation of the emerging global context.
Our mission is to provide an educational environment where students can reach their full potential in their chosen discipline and become responsible citizens without compromising in ethics and a scholarly environment where the talents of both, the faculty members and students are nurtured and used to create knowledge and technology for the benefit of the society. The idea behind VSIT is to help students free themselves from the traditional ways of looking at things and instead constantly question and challenge themselves, society and the world at large.
We at Vidyalankar believe in what is known as 'learn from everything you can see, hear and feel, not restricted to books alone.' So when you have a particular lesson being taught in class, it's not just the subject or the chapter alone, its also knowledge being imparted to the students that will help them in their everyday life. We do not believe in bookish knowledge, or rote learning methods, but understanding a concept, and applying it effectively in any daily chore.
The founder had a dazzling educational career. In 1950, he secured the top rank in the Inter Science Examination of the Pune University standing first in every subject, creating a record in Mathematics and Grand Total and winning all the Prizes and Scholarships of the University. (The 2nd rank student was behind him by as many as 70 marks i.e. by 10%). Further, the solitary scholarship of the then Govt. of Bombay State for the highest marks among all the 4 universities in the state (Mumbai, Pune, Gujarat and Karnataka) was awarded to him and was continued up to the end of his education.On the conclusion of his B.E. degree in Electronics and Telecommunications from the Govt. College of Engineering Pune, the Principal of his college recommended him to the leading scientist, Dr. Homi J. Bhabha through a special personal letter. Accordingly he was appointed as a research scholar in the famous T.I.F.R in 1954.In the next year (1955) he appeared for the 'Indian Engineering Services' (IES) examination of the U.P.S.C. and secured the 1st rank in that All India Competitive Exam too. Consequently he joined the I.R.S.E. in 1957.
However, his academic mind did not find satisfaction in that administrative work and in just a couple of years, he decided to quit that coveted Class I Gazetted Service in favour of an academic career. Ultimately, in 1959, he did take the highly unconventional decision of walking out of the secure and prestigious Class I officer's service to dedicate himself wholeheartedly to the pursuit of academics. He started by teaching his first batch of students in a rented school classroom at Dadar. That was the modest beginning of Vidyalankar.
Thus the basic objective of starting an academic institution was to satisfy the inner urge of guiding eager young minds of engineering students with a missionary zeal and imbibing in the receptive minds of the students nobler values of life, thereby enhancing their worthiness.With the founder's vision and his dedicated efforts Vidyalankar has grown steadily. Vidyalankar consolidated its commitment by establishing 3 colleges, viz.
Our entire campus has been designed by Planet 3 Studios Architecture Pvt. Ltd.

Why VSIT ?
Ambience and Environment
Buildings are a primary source of pollution that leads to urban air quality problems, climate change, habitat destruction, and overfilled landfills.
A high performance building which is healthy; thermally, visually & acoustically comfortable; energy, material & water efficient; safe and secure; easy to maintain & operate was the solution provided by us. This involved integrating the project designing, planning, and engineering, in order to work with, not against nature i.e. to incorporate nature's "free" services (wind, sun, thermal properties, greenhouse principles, light, etc.) to create a high quality indoor environment while circumventing as much damage to the ambient environment as possible.
We desired to look beyond the default modernist box architecture. Our building had to express the will of the Institution to progress in a progressive environment; to build a campus that best embodies its cherished values. So, monumental verticality was avoided and instead we decided to experiment with horizontal urbanism. Our main idea was to have an educational village built within an industrial container. This literal minded village was planned to have groupings of similar requirements in clearly definable structures with a main street as the central organizing device that would become a hospitable site for spontaneous student interactions. We believe that this plan of open public spaces, enclosed semi public places and private areas encourages communal learning and awakens a sense of cultural and intellectual growth.
We are of the opinion that a powerful design can affect human psyche and duly contribute to building a great Institution.
Vidyalankar provides housing to the Out-station students providing them all the required amenities.
The Vidyalankar Gurkul, a hostel for boys and girls at Nerul, is been run by the Vidyalankar Dyanapeeth Trust since June 1996. A total of 131 students (both boys and girls) reside here. A few of the students are from the western suburbs, of Mumbai and while others come from different states of India. It has a residential setup to give the students a feel of home with a congenial environment.
The Vidyalankar Gurkul is a 'Home away from Home.
Every educational institution thrives to ensure that a student procures overall development when he passes out from the institution. Academics and personality development go hand in hand. Development of both these qualities is essential for any student. VSIT ensures that every student, who enrols into the VSIT family passes out as an overall efficient engineer. VSIT's student activities sees to it that along with the social development of a student with the help of Shanivar Manch, the moral development is also achieved by the VSIT NSS Committee, which indulges in social service activities for the local community.
As a member of a larger community, VSIT recognizes its societal responsibilities and the importance of mobilizing its youth towards volunteering in social service to make the world a better place for all citizens, regardless of differences.
The Vidyalankar Volunteering Committee shall motivate students to willingly participate in â€˜on-the fieldâ€™ social service activities, build partnerships with NGOâ€™s to address common goals and raise awareness of volunteering as it is also an important part of the role of educators.
National Service Scheme (NSS) is the programme run by the ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports in Central Government and Department of Higher & Technical Education in State government. The primary objective of this scheme is the personality development of students through the community service. At present around 232 colleges of Mumbai University are implementing this scheme through 320 units with student strength of 36,000.
Vidyalankar Volunteering Committee of VSIT initiated the process of establishing NSS Unit in VSIT & successfully got this done in September 2009. The Motto of NSS is â€œNot Me But Youâ€.
Under the NSS Programme any student studying in a village or in a university who opts for and is selected for NSS is expected to continue for the period of two years and is required to render social service for a minimum 120 hours per year and he is also required to participate in 7 day special camping programme.

The infrastructure of an institution is one of the main aspects that a prospective student scrounges in any institution. VSIT has developed an Award Winning Infrastructure wherein every department has been alloted it's own block. The Laboratories have been provided with an entire floor within the main building, so as to make the Labs fully equiped with all the modern day equipments affiliated with each department.
"Every institute derives its strength from the books that it houses and there is no better place in the world to house books than a place known as 'Library'. The only true equalisers in the world are books; the only treasure-house open to all comers is a library; the only wealth which will not decay is knowledge; the only jewel which you can carry beyond the grave is wisdom."
- J. A. Langford
Any technical activity would be incomplete without proper reference work and analysis. Keeping this in mind VSIT has developed a Central Library with more than 450 sq m built up space and is stocked with relevant books which is approximately about 270 non-books (CDs) and about 22 National and International Journals.
