“Nobody is bothered about an institution more than its alumni” are the words of Mr. N. R. Narayana Murthy, co-founder Infosys and IT industrialist. No doubt, it is the key to the institution’s growth, and can create big things for its students who can carve a niche for themselves in their careers. MILAN 2018, the sixth Annual Alumni Meet of VJIT marked its significance of rejuvenating memories of its ex-students who showed up with zeal, and a glimmer of excitement in their eyes, on the grand eve of 6th January 2018 at our premises to refresh their old relationships with their teachers and peers.
