Research & Development

R & D and Consultancy

Research & Development and consultancy are hallmarks of a world-class university.

KIIT has placed much emphasis on creating enabling infrastructure and facilities for advanced research in diverse areas. It has set up a Centre for Scientific Research with seed money of US$ 1.2 million, the only private University in the country to establish such a centre. KIIT has also established a state-of-the-art Central Advanced Research Centre (CARC) on 1.2 lakh sq. ft. built up area for multidisciplinary research.

Several Centres of Excellence have been established in collaboration with industry. ISRO-KIIT Satellite Centre, NI Centre of Excellence, Interdisciplinary Research Centre in Materials and Nano Sciences and IOT Centre of Excellence are among more than 18 such centres functioning in KIIT.

In addition, specialized School-level laboratories, such as SKF-KIIT Advanced Reliability Centre, Green Engine Technology Centre, Thin Film Photovoltaic Lab, High Frequency Simulation & Fabrication lab, etc., greatly augment research activity at KIIT. They provide ideal platforms for conducting collaborative research and development work with several partnering agencies and institutions around the world.

Research accomplishments of the faculty and students demonstrate the positive impact of KIIT’s focus on research and innovation. Faculty members of the University are actively involved in research and consultancy works attracting financial support to the tune of a few million dollars every year. Currently nearly 100 research and consultancy projects funded by various national and international funding agencies like UBS Promedica Foundation, Switzerland; Karolinska Institute, Sweden; DST, DBT, MNRE, Govt. of India, Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences, etc. are ongoing with substantial budget outlay.

Faculty members and research scholars of the University have published more than 8200 research papers in various national and international journals of repute. It is creditable that out of them around 2241 publications have been indexed in international databases like Scopus.

The research papers have received a high citation of around 8000, pushing up the ‘h’ index to 36.The number of patents filed has risen to 32. Numerous research papers authored by students have also been published in reputed national and international journals. The faculty members have also published around 110 books and several book reviews.

KIIT actively promotes students research and projects of its students have been appreciated at national and international forum, including being selected for the prestigious Indian Science Congress. In recent years, students’ team of KIIT have emerged as a strong contender in the prestigious automobile design competitions, like BAJA SAE, aeronautical design competitions, like Aero Design West, Robotics, Civil, Electrical and Computer Science innovation events.
