What People say about V Act Technologies

This place does 2 things, one is to develop new projects and the other is to train students to achieve a career at any one of the best top companies. I had seen this place on google maps and came here seeking a job. As a fresher, they gave me a test, and It was a bit easy to get some good marks. Next was a face-to-face interview process, which was also good. And since I had good knowledge of C and lacked experience in embedded systems. The company offered me free training to which I would gain knowledge just like a fresher getting trained in a placed company. It’s been 2 and half weeks since joining and have gained some knowledge on what is being done in the industry. If you’re looking for some training or if you want to shift to a new job, look no further “VACT technology” is the place to be.

I’m a Embedded software developer for past one year. In my previous company I’ve have worked with ARM based controllers like STM , CYPRESS(inhouse projects ). I wanted to switch Automotive domain, so I searched for company that can help for my future career and finally I got the opportunity to work with VAct technologies. They have worked with many Tier I supplier to come up with various training modules in embedded automotive domain. I was learning CAN and AUTOSAR related modules. Within a month I got placed in a electric vehicle manufacturer as embedded developer. All thanks to Mr. kumaravel CEO of VAct technologies. Environment in VAct is so good you’ll get wide exposure about controllers and automotive domain communication protocols.
