Just learning concepts does not convert a student into worthy professional. Traits other than knowledge also play important role in developing personality of a student. Some of the important traits include Leadership, Management, Creativity, Taking Initiatives, Critical Thinking, Decision Making etc. Special activities along with academic learning are required to develop these important skills in a student which ensure a well developed professional who would be able to participate in various crucial job roles in addition to their core job tasks. Extra abilities along with core skills makes the professional a more worthy and valuable asset for an organization since the personnel would be able to help the organization in taking right decisions and improve the overall execution processes.

Konark Institute of Science and Technology – The Top Engineering College in Bhubaneswar and the Best Management College in Bhubaneswar looks deep into the requirements for developing worthy professionals and plans a variety of events that focus on developing and grinding every crucial trait in students. In order to develop research and presentation skills, seminars and conferences are organized on regular basis where students and faculties take an active part. KIST also took an initiative of conducting an annual event entitled Tech-Fest Technovation in which robotics football championship proved to be the event of highlight.

In order to keep our students physically fit and active, adequate sports facilities have been made available that encourages our students to excel in the various sports events and helps them to stay healthy too. KIST also organizes regular sports meet and several other gaming event in which good number of student participation is assured where best performers are also awarded as a token of appreciation. Also, equal focus is laid on Co-curricular activities by organizing Cultural events within the institute premises.

Apart from participating, students also play active role in organizing / coordinating the events. Such involvement develops high confidence in students along with improving their leadership, teamwork and decision making. Thus, KIST puts in deep efforts in creating all round professionals for the industry.
