Principal’s Message

principal“An institution is not made with mere bricks and stones, but by the strong character and integrity it instills in its students.

It gives me an immense pleasure to welcome you to explore our college website. “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”, said Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18th July 1918 – 5th December 2013). From the days of its inception, WISTM believed the same and is built on the same philosophy.

Our honorable founder, Dr. Vijay Prasad Malla, dedicated this institute to provide quality education in order to produce engineers of this country imbibed with professional and ethical values.

With the constant endeavor of our team of highly qualified, experienced and dedicated teachers, supported by impressive infrastructure and development of appreciable competency, I can assure that WISTM responds pro-actively to the wider needs of the educational and social environment of our country.

Our team always strives towards the holistic development of the student. The calm and serene atmosphere of our campus is a strong motivational factor for young boys and girls to wake up their creative minds to make their dreams true. I trust my student’s stay in this college will be richly rewarding and immensely memorable.

Dear parents, your ward has successfully crossed another mile stone in his / her life, mounting one more step in his / her pursuit to success. While our Wellfare group’s slogan, “నమ్మకానికి అమ్మ వంటిది” keep reminding us, we treat your child as a mother cares for her child. Hence you can be assured that your son / daughter is under the safest shelter. At this juncture, I beseech all the parents to be our partners in this onerous and divine task of education.

Our constant endeavour is to retain the smiles on the faces of every stakeholder through channelising the energies of youthfulness, while sensing the beautiful connectivity between the heart, character, nation and the world.
