It seems that the pandemic has taught them that if we get into our learning mode instead of fighting, we can survive any catastrophe.
It is a matter of pleasure and pride that KIET has maintained its trend of bringing the best multinational companies to the institute for recruitments, wherein the average CTC for B.Tech students is more than Rs 4 LPA since last 3 years. The finest thing that has been announced during lockdown is that two girls of final year, Ms. Mehak Gupta and Ms Palak Aggarwal, from the department of Information Technology, have been offered a package of Rs 27.40 LPA by the eminent IT Brand‘Adobe’.
“My passion and perseverance to work in the company par excellence has made my dream come true.

My sincere confession, I’m proud to be a KIETian!!” said Mehak Gupta after receiving the offer.
Moreover, the Campus Hackathon Challenge 2020 organized by Lowe’s India brought some of the brilliant minds of KIET to the forefront as the students of 3rd year, Aakash Bajpai and Isha Bansal, blew it up with their incredible hacks. They won the Campus Hackathon beating more than 1000 other teams.
