We consider research as central hub of our academic activity.  Research is the core competence of our full time faculty.  Our full time faculty members are either Ph.Ds or are enrolled in MS programs leading to PhD with the objective of developing the capacity for undertaking academic research.  This program has been outstandingly successful and has already paid dividends in the form of generating publications in research journals and papers read at international conferences.  In the last couple of years, faculty members of KIET have published 19 papers in research journals, presented 27 papers at international conferences and have contributed 9 chapters in international publications.
