Vedatya has lots to offer to its students in terms of industry interaction, studies, events, participation in internal and external competition, conferences, workshops etc. All this and more forms part of a student development program which is holistic in nature. I was prepared and positioned to meet corporate expectations through various workshops and training sessions.
