About KIIT

The University was founded in 1992-93 by Prof Samanta, an eminent educationist and social activist. It made a modest beginning as a vocational training centre. But its principles and the underlying belief in making quality education accessible to all made it a sought-after destination for higher studies. It took shape as a centre of higher learning in 1997, which is considered, the base year. Since then, KIIT has grown exponentially, setting a classic benchmark in education and research activities.
