As India continues to take gigantic treads in global arena, the need for well qualified professionals is becoming increasingly critical. Opening up of new opportunities in Indian Economy has piloted many individuals to take initiatives and come up with MNCs and professionally managed organizations that have come up with well-paid career options in almost every field. The fast growing economies have come up with new visions and are offering jobs to engineers in abundance. Thus they have laid a need for setting up institutions offering quality technical education with adequate practical exposure.

KIST, a well-planned set up designed to create technocrats for the industry by imparting quality technical education, is one the best engineering colleges in Bhubaneswar with a name of repute at national level. I feel proud to inform that the Institution has completed 8 years of excellence with a remarkable list of achievements in terms of placement and producing skilled engineers. Two batches of engineers have earned their degrees along with stable careers and are moving on the path of success with a good pace.

The institute is well-equipped with all the required amenities and machinery housed in a highly modern infrastructure edged with laboratories, well stocked library, ITes facilities, etc. The teaching processes are executed by highly qualified and experienced teachers who make good use of available facilities and ensure deep understanding of concepts through demonstrations and hands-on practice sessionsexecuted under their keen supervision. Highly calm and supportive environment of institution develops a spirit of belongingness among staff and students resulting in a small community full of innovative ideas.

The Training and Placement cell also makes deep efforts in setting up positive professional relationship with the industries resulting in better career opportunities.Accreditation from NBA and association with AMCAT add up to the flavours of professionalism in the institutions and provides better learning opportunities to the students. Preplacement training and guest lectures are organized to ensure adequate skills grooming of students. We have taken initiatives to convert the establishment into e-campus and making the institute as an establishment of repute at National level.

At last, I welcome all the students in KIST and assure bright learning and career opportunities. I am sure that together we will make this earth make a better place for living.
