BHUBANESWAR, India, Sept. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

- Achieves No. 1 Position in Odisha & Eastern India

    In an impressive achievement, Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology 
(KIIT) Deemed University, Bhubaneswar jumped up 200 positions globally to be 
placed in the cohort of 801 – 1000 in the prestigious Times Higher Education 
(THE) World University Rankings [] 2022, announced 
on 2nd September 2021. It is a significant improvement from last year when it 
had achieved a rank of 1001+. KIIT's performance makes it the No. 1 ranked 
university in Odisha and Eastern India.

    While KIIT, NIT Rourkela, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham and Vellore Institute 
of Technology (VIT) share the same rank in this coveted and most-referred 
annual ranking of the global higher education institutions, IIT Bhubaneswar and 
Manipal Academy of Higher Education have been ranked 1000+. SRM Institute of 
Science and Technology has slipped to 1200+ rank, compared to its position last 
year. As a young university of only 17 years, KIIT's performance is better than 
any other university in the country. It has also been achieving impressive 
positions in the rankings conducted by various Government bodies.

KIIT & KISS credited combined efforts by students and staff for the 
achievement. "KIIT's performance in the rankings is significant as it is a 
multi-disciplinary university with as many as 28 faculties. Had it been an 
institution offering only Engineering courses, it would have achieved much 
higher ranking," he said. KIIT's consistent outstanding performance in global 
and national rankings is only due to the vision of its Founder, said elated 
KIIT staff.
