GNIX is a technical-cum-cultural society run by the students of several colleges. It was founded at GCET, Galgotias College of Engineering & Technology. It was presumably electronics society which encompassed EC, EI and EE branches only. With its growing popularity it soon amassed students of other branches as well. Being a technical society it provided platform & limelight for students to show their talents in various fields both technical & cultural. Very soon it reached GNIOT, Greater Noida Institute of Technology. September 13, 2007 will be remembered as the ‘foundation day’ of GNIX, as it was on this day that the GNIX was introduced to the students of GNIOT. Honourable Mr. Dhiraj Gupta Head of Department of Electronics & Communications, GNIOT took the position of faculty advisor of GNIX, Mr.Yogesh Kumar, Mrs. Arashdeep Kaur and Ms. Jasleen Khosla the faculty coordinator of GNIX were also present there. From students Priyesh Gupta became the General Secretary of GNIX. Since then GNIX has been working to provide a dais to students for upliftment of their technical abilities.
GNIX is a society by the students, from the students, for the students. On the top it has the General Secretary and supported by a Joint Secretary. Both of them are supported by a team of students which are further subdivided into Technical, Marketing, Editorial, Design, Event Management, Treasury, Discipline, Hospitality, Student Activity. Each team has a head supported by a group of students. All teams work in perfect harmony to become fruitful for the students.
