More than 1500 academic and research staff – many leaders in their fields, with international reputations – provide stimulating learning environment and excellent standards of teaching. Even though it is a self-financing institution, KIIT is a well structured and decentralized organization. It is perhaps the only self-financing institution in the country where top functionaries, including Chancellor and Vice Chancellor, are renowned academicians. The quality is amply demonstrated by the patents held by various faculty members, the research grants coming from various agencies both in India and abroad, national and international conferences, symposiums and workshops held here and the hundred percent placement records.
The University has established a Centre for Scientific Research with seed money of US$ 1.2 million, the only private University in the country to establish such a centre. KIIT actively promotes students research and projects of its students have the distinction of being appreciated at national and international forum, including being selected for the prestigious Indian Science Congress.
