I wish to welcome all staff and students to the Vignan Institute of Science and Technology (VIST). Vignan is a Sanskrit word meaning Knowledge. I congratulate all the students for choosing the VIST to pursue their educational goals and gain knowledge in respective areas of academic interest in Health Sciences. A professional specialized in health sciences is a person who prevents, treats and rehabilitates people affected by diseases and communities. This is the noblest profession in the world. This Website is an important avenue for both staff and students for continuous learning through electronic resources in addition to the lectures, library and ICT laboratory. All staff and students are welcome to use the Website.
I wish to thank the Founder, Hon. Katuri Subba Rao who established the Vignan Educational Foundation that brought the resources out over the years in developing this training institution and the future plans for expansion. It is upon us as staff and students to seize this opportunity to produce the best healthcare professionals to serve the people and communities in Tanzania especially in the rural areas of the country.
I also thank the National Council for Technical Education for smart and prompt service towards registration and seek their guidance to achieve full accreditation in the near future. With these few remarks may I welcome you all to our beautiful campus and wish you the very best.
