KIIT Deemed to be University, an Institution of Eminence, has always been ranked prominently among private universities in India and among the top most in Odisha.
“It is our constant endeavour to be the best, and we work relentlessly to achieve it through innovation, best practices and non negotiable commitment to research. I congratulate the staff and students of KIIT for this achievement with these few words – that success lies in consistency and not one-time achievement. Congratulations to KIIT for making the mark”, said Prof. Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT & KISS.
KIIT is just 23 years old as an institution for professional education (started in 1997) and 16 years old as a University (declared in 2004). But, despite being a very young university, it has secured impressive positions in various benchmark global university rankings as well as ‘Institution of Eminence’ recognition.
