KIITKIIT Deemed University has made an impressive debut in The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2019. The Times Higher Education global university rankings for 2019 - regarded as one of the most prestigious – were published on September 26, 2018.

November 13, 2018: “Don’t fall in the trap of material goddesses of ignorance, illusion, corruption, conspiracy, diplomacy and ignore these completely. Be an icon of yourselves and never imitate others”, said Prof. Ganeshi Lal, Governor of Odisha, while addressing the graduating students of KIIT, deemed to be University, during its 14th Convocation on November 10, 2018.

“Every country of the world is striving for economic supremacy. You are going to face a world divided by the lines of religion, regions, colour, languages, etc. and the biggest challenge before you is to vanquish these divisions”, the Governor of Odisha told the graduating students. As they advance in their chosen careers, they should not forget to smile, be kind and find peace in the laps of nature, was the advice given by him. He said “India is not only a country with her land, rivers, mountains and habitations, but for Indians, she is much beyond these things – she is the divine Goddess. Odisha is the state for humanity at large.  Son of the soil, Prof. Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT & KISS is an example of this. KIIT & KISS are his divine creations. Prof. Samanta is bringing smiles to 27,500 underprivileged children. He loves those who have never been loved before”, he added.

Total 5695 students of 2017 – 18 graduating batch of Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT), Deemed to be University, Bhubaneswar received their degrees at its 14th Annual Convocation in the presence of Professor Ganeshi Lal, His Excellency the Governor of Odisha, Prof. (Dr.) Ernesto Kahan, Sr. Vice-President, World Academy of Arts & Culture (WAAC), U.S.A. & Fmr. Vice President, IPPNW (Nobel Peace Prize winner - 1985) and other dignitaries. Among them, 77 students got Ph.D. degrees in various disciplines.

The University conferred Honoris Causa Degrees of D.Sc. upon Prof. (Dr.) Kahan and Prof. Dinabandhu Sahoo, Director, Institute of Bioresources and Sustainable Development (IBSD), Imphal, and D.Litt. upon The Rt. Hon. The Baroness Usha Kumari Prashar, CBE, PC, U.K.; Mr. Niklaus-Samuel Gugger, Hon'ble Member of Swiss Parliament, Switzerland; Prabhu Gaur Gopal Das, Life Coach, Monk & Spiritual Motivational Speaker; Shri Kabir Bedi, Renowned Indian Film Writer, Producer, Director and Actor; and Dr. Md. Sabur Khan, Chairman, Board of Trustees, Daffodil International University, Dhaka, Bangladesh.


In his address, the Chief Speaker Prof. (Dr.) Kahan stated, "I have visited many places in the world, but never saw institutions like KIIT and KISS. Two institutions are indeed examples for the whole world". Saluting Prof. Samanta for establishing institutions like KIIT & KISS, he promised to help KIIT in all ways possible, particularly in the field of medical science research. Prof. Khan, who is a well-known litterateur besides a physician, also read a poem he had written on the conflict in the Middle East and the relevance of Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings.    

In her acceptance speech, The Baroness Prashar said, “This institution has inspired me the most in the whole of my working career. Prof. Samanta’s vision has made it a reality and by emphasizing on women empowerment. Niklaus-Samuel Gugger said his journey of life had taught him many lessons and his experience in KIIT & KISS is among the most important ones. Prof. Samanta’s work for the underprivileged children is the top level service to humanity, he stated. Calamities can be turned into opportunities and students can learn this lesson from the life story of Prof. Samanta, said Prabhu Gaur Gopal Das. “He has the combination of leadership with compassion and empathy. In his acceptance speech, Mr. Bedi expressed gratitude to KIIT, its founder, all the teachers of the world because “knowledge is the best gift a human being can receive”.

Advising the graduating students to explore entrepreneurship, Dr. Khan said that they are lucky to have an example like Prof. Samanta, who has become an icon of India. Accepting the Honoris Causa D.Sc. Degree, Prof. Dinabandhu Sahoo said, “This honour is very special to me as it comes from a top university of my home state”.

"Gives more Opportunities to hunt for the Knowledge"

KIIT University provides excellent education along with all-round development of an individual. Apart from the regular studies, it gives great importance to Industry-related activities.

"KIIT UNIVERISTY overall review"

My college is outstanding regarding its preference for excellence rather than doing nothing. It is the No.1 private college in India right now and grades, results, and career-wise it's fabulous. The admission process takes around mid-April through an entrance examination called KIITEE. The nearest college from my home by train( although I'm staying in Hostel xD), academic brilliance throughout the college, Professors, and mentors are 24x7 available for helping the students. I searched in collegedunia a year back regarding choosing my stream according to the rank that I have got.

Also, my hostel(KP4) is also having bad facilities compared to other Campuses. 2. First thing was filling up the form which starts generally from February-March and ends up in April. You will get a date and place which you have to select for the entrance exam which was...
