Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Institute of Technology, Vasad, or SVIT, is a private technical institute located on the banks of the Mahi River, Gujarat, India. It offers undergraduate and graduate-level technical education. SVIT holds annual events like Prakarsh (National Technical Festival), Annual Day, Sports Week, Welcome and Farewell Party. SVIT has started M.E courses in Mechanical and Civil Engineering.


Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Institute of Technology was established in 1997 with the ideals of Shri Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. The New English School Trust, Vasad, constituted the Board of Management of SVIT under the chairmanship of an educationist and administrator of Gujarat, Prof. Shantibhai M Amin, Shri.Shivakaka and Shri. Chandukaka.


SVIT is approved by AICTE, DTE (Government of Gujarat) and affiliated to Gujarat University, GTU.

Though SVIT is approved by the AICTE, the website of AICTE mentions only three of its courses as approved by it, namely Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Civil Engineering.[1] From 2004 to 2005 all courses Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Information Technology, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Instrumentation & Control Engineering, Aeronautical Engineering, and MCA were approved by AICTE.


Prof.Shantibhai Amin and Shiva Kaka, classmates at the College of Engineering, Pune, along with Chandubhai Patel, a businessman in the town established SVIT with the help of local people. The objective was to fill the gap between the institutes situated in Baroda and Anand, i.e., Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda and Sardar Patel University.

Prof. Amin is an educationalist and was the principal of Birla Vishwakarma Mahavidyalaya for 13 years. He was a civil engineer and was involved in the construction of the township of Vallabh Vidhyanagar. The college was built with Gandhian philosophy.

The main role was played by Chandubhai Patel. He played a big part in bringing the people together who could make this institution possible. Ramanbhai Patel (Raman kaka) contributed Rs. 1.5 crore — the biggest donation the institution has received.

The college land was waste land purchased from the government. It was a ruinous area then it was prepared for the construction of the building. SVIT started with Civil, Mechanical and Electrical branches with an intake of 40 students.

SVIT houses an Aeronautical Engineering division as well, the only one in the State of Gujarat, with an intake of 60 students. It also has Architecture as a branch, called the College of Architecture.
