Dear Students and Parents,

Congratulations on your decision to join K S Institute of Technology and to the beginning of a fruitful, rewarding and enriching learning journey. I very much look forward to welcoming YOU as OUR students in your quest for lifelong learning.

Guided by experienced faculty, you will have the opportunity to work in teams, and resolve problems while working under constraints. By the time you graduate, you will be a confident, resourceful problem-solver and presenter who will be an asset to any organisation.

Broaden your network and enjoy your time in KSIT by participating in Co-Curricular Activities, which span from Interest Groups to Clubs, to nurture your creativity, interests and interpersonal skills. The KSIT education is dynamic, exciting and fulfilling. We are certain you will too! I look forward to seeing you in campus.

Empowerment of students for their all round development through education is our cherished motto. Today education means much more than merely acquiring knowledge. It is acquisition of knowledge and skills, building character and improving employability of our young talent, the future leadership. I am sure, being stars and their painstakingly and gainfully developed KSIT Culture, we inherited a strong foundation to march ahead and achieve the within mentioned education objectives for a stronger and brighter India. Measures initiated by the Hon. Management, steps taken by the college administration, the willing contribution of the teaching and non-teaching staff and over whelming response and enthusiastic participation of my dear students in the college activates in the recent past all vouch for this. When all the constituents come together and work in unison, the expected results are bound to flow.

I am proud of being the Principal of such a wonderful institution dedicated to the causes of better Nation. Through education and their real empowerment, I am happy to tell you that our Kammavari Singha is celebrating its Diamond Jubilee this year. Come on let's give our best and make this institution a modern temple of learning through our diligence, devotion and dedication. Wishing you all the best...!

With our commitment to education, training and development, we continue to provide structured and systematic delivery of our academic and professional programmes with the help of our dedicated management, faculty and administrative staff in a conducive learning environment. We motivate, facilitate and guide our students by providing lifelong learning opportunities.

You can be assured of constant attention from our professional teaching and academic staff. We provide necessary Student Support Services to ensure that student's needs and concerns are looked into so that they are able to achieve their goals of learning at KSIT.

We at KSIT believe that education is not about merely imparting knowledge but more about opening student's mind and self expression. I would like to tell you that this is highly competitive world and in this world one can easily survive who excel in these specific areas. Always aim at excellence. Further, in the Information Age, 'Meeting deadlines' are not good enough, 'Beating deadlines' is what is required. By the time you complete your four year term in this college, you should be equipped with quality knowledge and an attitude akin to highly inspired, self motivated, having a positive mindset, devoted to the service of the society and inspired to continue to excel in engineering profession. The departments at KSIT shall always be proactively engaged to support you in your resolve to bring glory to this college, to your parents and to yourself.

* Knowledge is the necessary condition to succeed, but knowledge alone is not enough.

* Success is not just a matter of luck, If you work with determination and with perfection's success will follow.

*Challenge negative forces. Do not accept defeat. The past will give in. You will certainly succeed. Never give up. Chose a job you love.

Wishing you very happy and academically highly rewarding years ahead and a memorable stay in this college.

Last but not the least, you are advised to always work to protect and enhance the fair name of KSIT as it will be your identity for life. You would be able to do so by your good deeds and will fail to do so if you engage in misdeeds and misconduct. I advise you to be ultra vigilant and protect your own and your Alma matter's interest.

It is my sincere hope that students of KSIT shall bring pride to the institute and be worthy citizens of our great country. We assure you that we shall leave no stone unturned to promote your career and shall equip you with best possible training and exposure.

I thank all the faculty members, staff members and students without whose cooperation such a success would not have been possible. It will not be out of place to mention that the college has several challenges, and I need your cooperation to overcome these through our commitment. Wishing you very happy and academically highly rewarding years ahead and a memorable stay in this college.

Jai Hind !
