At present over 1800 students / faculty are registered for Ph.D degree and over 180 students are registered for their MSc. ( Engineering ). This year Visveswaraiah Technological University is awarding 120 Ph.D Degrees and 50 M.Sc ( Engineering ) Degrees. The Faculty has published around 694 research publications in the year 2009 – 10.

Visveswaraiah Technological University has recently started MBA and M.Tech. Programs at Belgaum with about 205 students studying in all. Sixteen from among the affiliated colleges were recognized to get assistance under the World Bank supported. TEQIP program in the I Phase. This year as a novel measure academic autonomy has been provided to 17 affiliated Colleges after due processes.

Visveswaraiah Technological University has very successfully achieved the tremendous task of bringing various colleges affiliated earlier to different Universities, with different syllabi, different procedures and different traditions under one umbrella.

Visveswaraiah Technological University implemented common curriculum for UG in 1998 and revised syllabi again in 2002 for all the courses and uniform procedures were adopted. As a further step in standardization, the subjects & syllabi of related branches are being made common upto the fourth semester.

VTU has already revised the syllabus of MBA with effect from the academic year 2001 – 2002 and has now revised the syllabi of all M.Tech courses & MCA.VTU plans to bring in further flexibility in the curriculum, so that any changes or revisions may be introduced particularly with respect to electives, as and when the technology changes or the need arises.

Visveswaraiah Technological University proposes to have world wide electronic presence by establishing data network interconnecting the VTU campus at Machche, four regional offices and all the affiliated colleges of VTU in a secure private network and open up access to this network to the worldwide communities for collaborative learning using Internet technology.

In this direction, a Campus wide network at Machche with a fiber optic backbone, having about 1000 data access points interconnecting all the existing and proposed buildings is being set up.

VTU campus network uses the state of art network tiered architecture with Edge and Core switches and scalable distributed network topology. This network will meet the computing demand of PG students in the campus, provide eLearning environment, access to digital library, support examination, administration work and more importantly have sufficient bandwidth for Videoconferencing from any network access point.

Further, the VCONET : Visveswaraiah Technological University Colleges Network will enable sharing of faculty expertise among colleges, collaboration among peer groups, even out digital disparity among rural and urban engineering colleges, provide infrastructure for online examination system, portal to different digital libraries all over the world and support many more innovative applications on the net expected in future.

Visveswaraiah Technological University intends to start Nodal Training Institute for training the staff of engineering colleges similar to the staff training colleges functioning in other Universities. A project report in this regard is sent to the appropriate agencies for funding.
