Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is a world class, research intensive institution with national and international reputation as an educational institution providing higher education in an ambience rooted in rich Indian culture and heritage.
The beginnings of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham can be traced to 1994 when a School of Engineering was started in an obscure village named Ettimadai, at the foothills of Bouluvanpatty ranges of the Western Ghats in the Coimbatore district of Tamil Nadu. When Amrita became a “deemed to be University” in January 2003, it was the youngest group of institutions to be conferred this status.
