Vignan’s saga that sets through time is to step back to the year 1997, a pivotal moment when Vignan Engineering College emerged as the inaugural campus in Vadlamudi. This esteemed institution was meticulously brought to life under the visionary guidance of the Vignan Educational Trust, with the driving force behind it being none other than Dr. Lavu Rathaiah.

Vignan Engineering College transitioned to a Deemed University in 2008 after a decade of establishment. It is affiliated with JNTU Hyderabad, Kakinada, and Anantapur, approved by AICTE and NBA, and holds ISO 9001:2000 certification.

National Academic Depository (NAD)
The National Academic Depository (NAD) is an initiative led by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India (MHRD). It aims to serve as an online repository for academic awards such as certificates, diplomas, degrees, and mark sheets. Through NAD, academic institutions, boards, and eligibility assessment bodies can securely upload authenticated academic awards. NAD holds immense potential for various stakeholders, including academic institutions, students, and prospective employers. With just a click, degrees, mark sheets, and certificates become readily accessible.

VFSTR Deemed to be a university, it became a participant in the NAD depository services on April 6, 2018, by signing a Service Level Agreement (SLA). Since then, the academic degrees conferred by VFSTR from the academic year 2009–2010 onwards have been systematically uploaded onto the NAD portal, adhering to the NAD certificate template format, and digitally signed for authentication.
