It currently offers 62 degree programs to over 29,000 students in its 2 campuses at Vellore and Chennai. They are among the Top Universities in the country with the quality of their Teaching, Learning, and Research.
Why VIT choose Vmoksha?
Dr. Rajashekara Babu, the Program Manager of SCOPE (School of Computing Science and Engineering), VIT has attended the 2-day Vmoksha IoT Bootcamp in January at our Bangalore office. He admired the splendid training program we provide with the requisite hardware and software platform during the hands-on sessions. He had also analyzed other IoT Training institutes and ascertained that Vmoksha IoT Bootcamp is the best among the top IoT training institutes with the high-grade infrastructure and lab facility. He then approached us back to provide IoT training to the other Professors and Lectures of the VIT University.
IoT Bootcamp Sessions at VIT
According to a press statement, a group of 7 members from the Vmoksha’s IoT team has reported at VIT campus on the previous day of the bootcamp and arranged all the infra setup for the next two days. On the first day, Dr. Arun Kumar, the Dean of SCOPE, initiated the bootcamp delivering few words on IoT and the importance of the bootcamp. Dr. Rajashekara Babu shared the experience of his last visit to Vmoksha Bangalore Office.

“There were about 20+ attendees for the session, and many of them have shown a keen interest in knowing Vmoksha real-time projects. Even though the VIT team was quite new to IoT and hardware practice, they have actively taken part during the hands-on sessions,” the organisers said.
Some of the major sessions include the discussion of the below topics along with hands-on
- IoT architecture
- Sensors and actuators
- Connectivity technologies & communication protocols
- Cloud, its components, and IoT

Vmoksha said it also provided a custom-designed IoT starter kit to the participants that include all necessary components to kick start the IoT journey. They admired our IoT hardware kit and aspired to setup an IoT lab for their college students. The team was happy with the bootcamp sessions and referred us to the School of Electronics Engineering (SENSE), VIT.
