Testimonies by our Alumni
Karunya has a stunning blend of state of the art infrastructure and highly intellectual faculties who forged my domain knowledge. Four years of my journey with an amazing student community unwrapped a world of open-mindedness in me. Being part of the tech festival, i.e. MINDKRAFT and symposiums with students and faculties, moulded an effective communicator in me, and this has widely influenced my corporate leadership journey in the last ten years. Most importantly, the spiritual atmosphere and the value-based education at Karunya are enabling me to ”Rise and Shine” for Jesus. All glory and honour to Jesus
My four years at Karunya Institute of Technology and Sciences has been the best and amazing memory to cherish. The years spent here had been me learn and explore alot which I would I never did if I would not have come long way here to Karunya. The environment and the faculties of our Department of Biotechnology, has always motivated each and every students to pursue their dreams that too in an effective way too...Read More
I will always be thankful to Lord for the opportunity of spending 4 academic years in Karunya University, it’s been one good and memorable journey. My time at Karunya and at School of Biotechnology, taught me to come out of my comfort zone and face the corporate world. To be an Under Graduate and getting hired by an MNC is a great blessing, all credits to KITS and the faculties of School of Biotechnology...Read More
