Encouraging faculty innovation and entrepreneurship:
Faculty Innovation & Entrepreneurship is highly encouraged and supported on KNIT campus. The University provides seed funding for faculty who wish to augment or implement entrepreneurship co-curricular programs.
Faculty Development Programs, seven days programs, provide a platform to the faculty to boost up their interest on research and promote I&E. International Conference also offers an opportunity for the faculty members to interact with the faculty of other institutions to cultivate the I&E resources on our ecosystem.
Actively supporting the University technology transfer function:
Facilitating University-Industry collaboration:
Feasible collaboration exists between university and industry for different disciplines related to research, development and technology. Primarily, graduate students are provided with funds by these collaborations but they do not promote I&E on the campus.
Engaging with regional and local economic development efforts:
KNIT tries to help the local children by providing them free education. This initiative was started by the students and still continues. The main aim is to provide education to every child who is willing to study but cannot afford economically i.e. to eradicate illiteracy. The name of this education hub is “Koshish”.
