The members of the EES are encompassing all sections of the society i.e. educationists, agriculturists, industrialists, doctors, social workers etc,. They are highly respectable personalities of the city, and known for their generosity in social activities. The main objective of the EES is to develop KITS Warangal into a major technical institution imparting a quality education to the students of this backward Telangana region of Andhra Pradesh.
The institution was started functioning in 1980 with two B.Tech programs (viz., Civil Engineering & Mechanical Engineering) in sprawling lush green campus of 65 acres, in the area well connected by rail (Kazipet & Warangal) and road. It is a self-financing co-education institution affiliated to the Kakatiya University (KU), Warangal and is the first private engineering college in the Telangana region. The institute also has the distinction of being the first institute in the country to offer a B.Tech program in Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering since 1981.
Started as an Undergraduate institution, KITSW has recorded an impressive progress and today it is a full fledge Post graduation institution with 7 B.Tech., programs, 7 PG programs. Six academic departments are recognized as the research centres by the KU, Warangal to offer doctoral programs. The campus is now Wi-Fi enabled and OFC connected with 40 Mbps internet bandwidth. The institute follows annual system for I year, semester system from II year onwards and academic calendar issued by the KU. The Under Graduate Programs (with an intake of 720 per year from 2012–13) leading to B.Tech are Civil Engineering (120), Computer Science & Engineering (120), Electrical & Electronics Engineering (120), Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering (60), Electronics & Communication Engineering (120), Information Technology (60) and Mechanical Engineering (120). The Post Graduate Programs (with an intake of 247 per year from 2012–13) leading to M.Tech are Structural & Construction Engineering (24), Design Engineering (24), Digital Communication (25), Software Engineering (36), VLSI & Embedded System Design (18), MCA (60) and MBA (60).
