During my time in AIMIT, I had the opportunity to work with some of the great minds. The education and culture at AIMIT helped me gain insight into vast domains of opportunities. We had a thrilling experience of creating and deploying apps to Google Play. It was more than programming we learnt at AIMIT, soft skills, IT Fests, talks and classes on entrepreneurship were all part of the curriculum. The skillset acquired in AIMIT has helped me progress in my professional career.

As a student of AIMIT I can truly say that adjusting to the professional world wasn’t a huge task. The students in AIMIT are treated in a way how one would be treated in professional forefront. AIMIT helped me mould myself into a better version of me by giving me opportunities and experiences that I’m sure I wouldn’t have got elsewhere.The syllabus of AIMIT made sure I was incorporating and aware of new advancements in the field of technology, which gave me a better push than the others after my Masters. Also, including the add-ons like “Principles of management “ into the course of a tech student helped me to venture better directly with the org clients than most other tech freshers.Lecturers were very determined and always ready to help, also I always felt like they wanted every student to succeed. In the end I would like to quote, “AIMIT Is a equal balance of learning and opportunities”.

M.Sc. Software Technology has given me the idea of what career path I want to pursue. AIMIT has many subjects in the course for example Data Mining, Business Intelligence, Data Structures etc which are the current trending topics in the IT industry. Along with the subjects we had mandatory projects which gave us an idea about the real world. College fests helped me to mingle with other people and boosted my social skills. College location was really good, as it was situated outside the main city. It gave us a good peaceful environment to study/work in.

As I was just a graduate with very little knowledge on technology. The two year course was in itself a package of learning new languages right from basics, importance given to practical classes changed the way i looked at programming. I had literally got very good teachers and friends from whom it was all possible for me to not only learn but also never forget what I learnt. For me Aloysius was one of the best colleges even when it came to co-curricular activities as well. I always feel short of words talking about my experience here.
Shyamala Hegde, Cluster Coordinator, HDFC Bank, Mangalore.
Well it won’t be an exaggeration if I say AIMIT has the best environment for all round development of an Individual. A superb balance is made between the academics and extracurricular activities. The faculty is awesome, you can have a good, productive interactive session with the faculty and get your concepts cleared. The quality of education that they provide is excellent and prepares the students for competitive exams too.
