Directed by the vision and mission, Vignan, after careful study of the contemporary trends, entered the arena of engineering education in the year 1997 by establishing the first Engineering college under the Vignan umbrella, Vignan's Engineering College at Vadlamudi near Guntur. Within no time, students started opting for this college during counseling preference to colleges established 10-12 years earlier.
