  • Nominated for PCQuest - Best IT Implementations of the year (2012–13)


In 2011, the Center for Advanced Technology Solutions developed a 1.5 teraflops supercomputer called the High Performance Computer Cluster. This computer aids research in fields like bioinformatics, meteorology, simulation of large systems, nuclear physics and artificial intelligence. The supercomputer meets the HPC(High Performance Computing) benchmark.


Admission to GITAM is done through the university entrance exam GAT (GITAM Admission Test), a computer based online test which is held across major cities in India. It is one of the most competitive exams in South India. Based on ranks achieved, admissions are given in Visakhapatnam campus and Hyderabad campus. Admissions to other institutes are done through their entrance exams like GSAT for GITAM Institute of Science, GLAT for the School of Law,etc.
