Student Chapters


SPIE is an international society advancing an interdisciplinary approach to the science and application of Light Technology. SPIE Student Membership is your gateway to a promising career with the Optics industry.

Over the past year students from our club have been working hard to increase awareness towards Optics & Photonics.
Here are some of the things students have done:

  • Workshop on Advanced Optics & Photonics for Science and Engineering Applications.
  • Workshop on 3D Printing
  • The Laser Tag 1.0
  • Outreach Programs
  • Value Added Program: Roadmap to Optics & Photonics
  • National Workshop on Future in Photonics

THE FUTURE? Over the next year, we project an exponential growth in student membership as more SPIE. students chapter and clubs are established. This is an exciting time for the SPIE. Organization! We need YOU to be a part of it!


The Student Branch of IEEE was started in VIT Chennai in 2011. Since then, it has developed into a mutlifaceted student club on campus, organizing a wide variety of technically focussed events from workshops to student TechTalks to playing a significant role in technical fests.

The Student Branch attempts to provide a platform for students from different branches and years to connect with each other and IEEE members from other colleges.

Student members have the choice to get involved in technical projects, presentations, website building and maintenance and non-technical aspects such as marketing, volunteering for IEEE events and networking with other student branches.

In addition, the long term goal of the Student Branch on campus is to work on a long-term Engineering Projects In Community Service (EPICS) in IEEE related to village life.


The Optical Society of America (OSA) is the world’s leading professional association in optics and photonics. Founded in 1916, it proudly houses leading science, engineering, and business experts around the globe. OSA enphasizes on its mission to promote the generation, dissemination, application and archiving of knowledge in optics and photonics.

Ever since its birth in November 2014, our OSA VIT Chennai Student Chapter has been buzzing with life with our ever-enthusiastic members. The chapter provides a base for aspiring engineers to launch themselves into an arena of light, optics, and photonics, and apply their discovered knowledge and technologies to promote sustainable development, and provide solutions to world-wide challenges in the sectors of energy, education, agriculture, communications, and healthcare. By participating in our student chapter, you are exposed to unique chapter benefits, development of technical knowledge leadership experience, and lifetime relations with peers, leaders, and mentors. While in OSA, you will meet opportunities by the dozen, and open doors to greater accomplishments. OSA provides opportunities not only in India, but around the world. Through our student chapter, we have been able to guide our members upon their research and subject papers, and channel their work into tremendous opportunities of paper presentations and conferences in many foreign countries.

Our student body relentlessly strives to create more awareness among students regarding optical technology and its role and impact in sustainable development and solutions to global challenges. According to us, awareness must start when creativity and thinking is at its peak – the school level. Our student chapter frequently visits schools in and around the city, to expose its students to the amazement of the study of light. At the university level, promotional and technical events, and industrial visits help our budding engineers seek out knowledge.


The Power Electronics Society (PELS) is one of the fastest growing technical societies of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). For over 20 years, PELS has facilitated and guided the development and innovation in power electronics technology. IEEE, PELS Students branch, VIT Chennai is one of the pioneer technical society in the domain of power electronics based skill development. It also provides a forum to discuss about the recent developments of power electronic based technologies. The club is actively involved to arrange workshops, technical talks, seminar and other activities.

ENFUSE (Energy and fuel User’s )VIT Student

ENFUSE –VIT Student chapter was established in the year 2013 in collaboration with Energy and Fuel Users Association of India, Chennai. Every year around 100 students are registered for the membership. The main objective of this chapter is to create awareness among the student community about fuel and energy conservation , understand the benefits of renewable energy generation and sustainable development. Some of the activities includes awareness and quiz program for students, LPG clinic, drivers clinic and energy related seminars. Along with membership card , four copies of “Energy and fuel users journal” are issued to members every year .Members are also encouraged to publish articles in the journals.


At CSES, we aim to form a passionate community of computer scientists and engineers at VIT Chennai. From tech talks, to social events, to outreach, we have a diverse set of events and activities that appeal to any computer scientist or engineer.


The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is an international learned society for computing. It was founded in 1947 and is the world’s largest scientific and educational computing society. It is a not-for-profit professional membership group. ACM is organized into over 171 local chapters and 37 Special Interest Groups (SIGs), through which it conducts most of its activities. Additionally, there are over 500 college and university chapters. By becoming the member of VIT Chennai ACM the students would get more benefits as that of regular members and be updated towards the technology.
