Testimonials

Radhesh Krishnan
Batch 2014

I graduated from Amrita in 2011 with a bachelors in Computer Science and placement in a well paying software company. At Amrita, I was a beneficiary of a lot of attention and guidance from their faculty. I have seen how Amrita molds their students to achieve what they think is otherwise impossible. After an exciting tenure of two years in the industry, I realized the need for a higher degree to climb the success ladder. Amrita was the only option that came to my mind at that time. What was also particularly attractive, was their dual degree offerings. I enrolled for dual degree Masters at the Amrita Center for Cybersecurity Systems and Networks , Amritapuri, in the year 2013 and did my second year of Masters at Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. As I am writing this, I am at VU pursuing my PhD in system security. My heartfelt gratitude to Amrita and the Chancellor of the Institution Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, for instilling in us good values, and for giving us the confidence to take on life. Very sincere thanks also to the faculty at Amrita; they strive to bring out the best in us. Amrita is the best choice I ever made in my life! Thank you Amrita!

Archana B. S.
Batch 2014

I am a PhD student at KU Leuven. The masters programme at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham ‘Cybersecurity Systems & Networks’ helped in broadening my horizon and also gave an opportunity to complete the masters at VU Amsterdam. Being from an Electronics background did not hold me back from plunging into the depth of the cyber world. The excellent faculty, flexible lab and work timing and the facilities at Amrita makes it stand apart from others. The study environment and support from faculties who have very good insight about the industry as well as academia, gave me the perfect environment to mould myself. With the increasing use of internet applications and cloud services, data and privacy breach is also rising and this calls for more research in this interesting field and this programme can help you to take the dive into the field. We are very much grateful to the alumni community for make us proud !!!
