NETRONiX works in an organizational way ensuring that its core objectives are not disrupted but at the same time creates a harmony among its members which makes it a society of individuals who are closely knitted by a bond which is more precious than friendship.

The alumni network of NETRONiX is strong, well-connected and goes back to the days of its foundation.

This makes NETRONIX a platform where students of GIKI not only experience an organizational environment, manage events or acquire technical knowledge but also socialise with the alumni who help them with their life in the university and beyond; in both their personal and professional lives.

NETRONiX is a student-run society which was established by the 7th Batch of GIKI in order to maintain and improve GIKI's LAN Network.This decision was taken so as to diversify the skills of students.

Over the period of almost 18 years, NETRONiX has not only maintained its core objective of handling the whole LAN of GIKI but also provided the students a platform to learn and implement their skills.

The result can be seen in the form of the improved network system of GIKI and the new services being provided by NETRONiX.
