Campus facilities and amenities[edit]

KNIT has a 100-acre campus with different blocks allotted for various academic activities which include co-curricular and extra co-curricular activities. Apart from hostels, KNIT has admin blocks, a CSA(Council of student activities) hall, KNIT grounds, Academic block, various engineering labs like Mechanics lab and Workshops which consist of various shops like welding, foundry, carpentry, etc. that are generally included in engineering syllabuses across the country. Many of the labs like networking, Java and various CSED (Computer science and Engineering Department labs) are located in academic blocks. [5]

The college also has a guest house which is used for accommodation of guests such as guest professors and guardians of students residing in campus.

Central Wireless Network (CWN)[edit]

Internet facility is available throughout the campus either by the use of WiFi or by keystone jacks installed in classes and various other places in academic and admin buildings. ISP providing the service is National Knowledge Network (NKN) which connects the campus via leased fibre lines.[6] Hostels and various academic sections are connected via Network Switch which in turn is connected to the Network Switch Controller in the server room. All Hostels have WiFi provided by routers at appropriate locations. The network has MAC filtering and requires devices to have their MAC registered before they can connect to the secured WiFi Networks using WPA2 Personal Security.

The entire traffic passes through Fortiguard firewall which regulates traffic restricting access of few site genres, VPNs, some of the network ports, etc.
